Host a Chinese Student!

The Chinese mission field is coming to Colorado Springs; you can impact Chengdu, China right from your home! We are still in need of Host homes for 25 students (middle school and high school age), plus chaperones from July 14 - August 4. Host family opportunities include breakfast, dinner, and transporting students to and from their classes at VGBC. Weekends and evenings, students spend with the host family. If you are unable to host, but would still like to help, sign up to provide food, or help prepare and serve lunch. If you are interested in hosting, please contact Nancy Sutton or Mary Weber.

 The church family is invited to a time of food, fun, and fellowship on the church grounds on Sunday, July 17, 5:00 pm. The church will provide pulled pork, buns, condiments, and drinks. If you plan to attend, please make a reservation by clicking here, or at the info booth.

baby_bottleThe Baby Bottle Campaign
for the Lydia Women’s Center in Stip, Macedonia

Our church’s change can change lives and the Baby Bottle Campaign makes it easy!  When you give to the Lydia Women’s Center, even little gifts can make a big difference for the women and babies of their community.  Take a bottle home and fill it with coins, cash, or a check.  Donations will be accepted during the month of July.  Pray for this Women’s Center ministry and soon you'll hear about the impact it makes equipping women to welcome their babies into the world!

From the Counting Committee

Please use the appropriate offering envelopes when making contributions as this will help us out tremendously! Offering envelopes are in the brochure rack or at the Welcome desk in the foyer. For accuracy and clarity, please keep in mind that separate checks should be written for each account, i.e. budget offering and FOP building fund, as these are separate accounts. Also print your full name legibly on the giving envelope so that proper credit is given.

Prayer Corner

This week pray for . . .  Kids Camp at the Ponderosa, June 22-25

“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and He has become my salvation.”  Isaiah 12:2 ESV

Kids Camp is an exciting way for children to spend their summer!  During camp, your child will grow in their faith, friendships, and knowledge of God's ultimate truth.  Pray for their hearts to be open to God’s Word and to learn to trust solely in Him.
