But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8


Dear VBC Family:

Feeling powerFULL today !?This week Pastor Ed will share how the DEPARTURE of Jesus led to the ARRIVAL of the PRESENCE and POWER of the Holy Spirit !!  According to Jesus – “this is a “Good thing” !  (Not sure the disciples agreed at that time)

We will join together in the CELEBRATION of the LORD’S SUPPER. Come and declare how GLORIOUS our God is – God the Father, Jesus His Son, and the Holy Spirit !!

TIME CHANGE !!!!!

Don’t forget to turn your clocks BACK one hour Sunday morning at 2:00 a.m.

***  Children’s and Adult Sunday School is up and running from 9:15 – 10:15am.  Come and JOIN US !!

****  We have placed extra chairs in the Sanctuary which should allow you to maintain a safe distance from others.   

Please continue to wear your mask in and out of the church, as well as when you are moving about and coming in close proximity to others.  

THANK YOU for caring about the well-being of your VBC Family !!

Looking forward to seeing YOU this Sunday to declare together the WORTH-SHIP of our Mighty God !!
