Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.   (Psalm 100:4)


Dear VBC Family – On this THANKS-GIVING day let’s GIVE THANKS for the GOODNESS of GOD – and be GRATEFUL for His loving kindness to us !  This week begins ADVENT, and Pastor Ed will share about the HOPE we have, even in the midst of seemingly “hopeless” circumstances.
This week the Pastors Jen and James and the rest of the COHEN FAMILY will share with us the lighting of the Advent candle of HOPE.Our God is SUCH and AWESOME GOD !!!  AND – He is doing a GREAT THING at VBC !!!

NOTE:   Sunday School for ALL AGES will not be held this Sunday, Nov. 29.

*** NOMINATION FORMS are due back this Sunday.  THANK YOU for your prayerful consideration of leadership for 2021, and YOUR PART in the ministry of VBC  🙂


***  CHILDREN’S CHURCH will continue this Sunday during the Worship Service.  We will dismiss kids who want to participate  right after the Children’s Message.

  • Ages Toddler to 3 yrs. old will be in the Toddler Play Room (last door down the hall on the left)
  • Ages 4 yrs. old to 3rd Grade will be upstairs in the Fellowship Hall.
  • Our Nursery (with changing table, rockers, crib, swing …) is also available for any parent who wishes to utilize it at any time.

All children will be returned to their parents during the final song.

***  HOT OFF the PRESS !!  We have ANOTHER GREAT REASON to download the CHURCH CENTER APP on your phone !!!  Besides having access to VBC information, our online CONNECTION CARD, and an opportunity for ONLINE GIVING … there’s another GREAT ADDITION that MANY of you have asked for – a VBC Directory  (address/emails/phone #) !!!

(In the meantime – download the ChurchCenter app – choose Vine and Branch Church in the “church locator” – and we’ll help you do the rest on Sunday  🙂
