A Special Thank You

Many thanks to everyone who helped with the Fall Festival!  Close to a 1,000 people came through our doors, including 200 new families.  Your help and participation are greatly appreciated!

Turkey Round Up 
VGBC will be collecting frozen turkeys for the 
Springs Rescue Mission. 
This special outreach will provide Thanksgiving dinner for hundreds of people in need.  The collection will start at

How many turkeys can your Sunday school class collect, along with the total weight? 

Financial gifts will also be accepted for the purchase of turkeys; make checks payable to VGBC.
