Welcome to Worship
August 22, 2021
Thank you for joining us for worship at VGBC.
If you are visitor, we are delighted you chose to worship with us.  We have a gift for you, so please visit the Welcome Desk before or after the service. We would love to share with you how you can get connected. You can download our church app, which has more information. (Links below) 
We have online giving on our church app. Also, we have offering plates at the back of the Worship Center at the end of each service.  While you are welcome to give, all we ask of our guests is to visit us at the Welcome Desk near the entry! 

Scripture  of the Week The Lord sets  the prisoners free;  the Lord  opens the eyes of the blind.  The Lord  lifts up those  who are  bowed down; the Lord loves  the righteous.
