Rejoice Concert & Farewell Please join us for a farewell celebration for Jeff & Denise Carson on Sunday, August 4, at 6 pm. They are long-time members of VGBC—over 22 years—and will be greatly missed! Rejoice will perform a concert and a pie social will follow in the Fellowship Hall. We’ll eat pie as we say our goodbyes!
Awana Leaders Needed Awana starts back up August 14! Volunteers are needed in all areas and for all ages of kids. Leaders are needed in hands-on roles as well as behind-the-scenes administrative positions. If you are interested in this fun and rewarding ministry, contact Mike Bissett at bissetmd@yahoo.com.
Youth Wing Door Access Beginning today, 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 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. -VGBC Security Committee

Thank You from Lydia Thank you for taking a stand for the unborn child in North Macedonia. To date, you have contributed $7,325 to Lydia-A Beating Heart! Your funding keeps trained, Christian counselors speaking God’s word into the lives of women who have an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy. Continue to pray for these women as Lydia counselors share Jesus and His value of human life! The last day to contribute is July 28.
