VGBC’s Lottie Moon Christmas Offering goal is $90,000.  In 2016, IMB missionaries helped to plant more than 4,500 churches where there had previously been none!


Thanksgiving Baskets

The deacons will be distributing baskets to individuals and families in need.  If any of our church members know of someone in need, please contact the church office.  Along with your contact name, provide the name, number in household, phone number, and address of the family in need.  Today is the last day to submit info.

OCC Shoeboxes

Help spread joy and peace to hurting children by filling shoeboxes with toys and other gifts.  National Collection Week is November 13-20.  Our church’s goal is to fill 1,500 shoeboxes.

Mexico Mission Trip Meeting

Looking to serve God through a short-term mission trip?  We will partner with Casas por Cristo in March 2018 to build homes for  deserving families, in Juarez, Mexico.  If you are middle school age to senior adult, join us for an informational meeting, today at 2 pm in room 177.


Deacon Nominations for 2018

Each year the Deacon Nominating Committee asks our church body to provide recommendations for selecting deacon candidates to serve VGBC.  This is the first and most vital step in the deacon selection process.  Please take time to prayerfully consider men in our church you would like to nominate to serve our Lord at VGBC.  Forms are available at the info booth and brochure rack.  The last day to turn in nominations is December 3.


Deck the Halls

We need your help decorating the church for Christmas. Please join us Saturday, November 18, from 8 am – noon or until it is complete.  Men are especially needed for heavy lifting, but all are welcome!
