Men’s Retreat Calling all men for a great time of worship, fellowship, and fun! The VGBC Men’s Retreat is August 23 – 25 at the Lutheran Valley Retreat Center in Florissant, CO. Registration is $160, which includes lodging, meals, and activities. We’ll dive deep into Psalm 23 and discover some incredible truths about being shepherded. Available activities include: fishing, hiking, rappelling, ropes course, giant swing, and more! Sign up at the info booth today.
Youth Wing Door Access Beginning Sunday, July 21, the doors to the Youth Wing, including the metal door leading to the east parking lot, will be locked from 9:15-10:30 and 11:00-12:30. This is in an effort to continue to provide for a safe environment for all our members and visitors while attending the worship services or Sunday school. During those times, the only access to the building will be the main entrance and the double doors on the east side of the building by the playground. Thank you for your understanding to this matter. -VGBC
