VBS Volunteer Help Additional help is needed for this year’s VBS. We need leaders to escort classes to their various rotations (missions, crafts, recreation, Bible, music). No teaching or preparation is needed—just a willingness to serve. To volunteer, sign up.
 
Colorado Disaster Relief Training Colorado Southern Baptist Disaster Relief is holding training sessions August 2-3 at Majestic Baptist Church in Pueblo West. Certification is required in order to serve at disaster sites around the country. Please register at www.coloradodr.org/training or if you have any questions, contact Rhonda Nanney at Rnanney@cbgc.org.
 
Business Meeting Church members, please plan to attend a regularly scheduled Business Meeting, tonight, June 9, at 6:00 pm.
 
Ladies Summer Bible Study Ladies, come be refreshed and encouraged as we begin a four-part summer study tonight at 5:00 in room 180. We will look in God’s word to discover our reality in Christ. We will be filled with awe as we peek into God’s throne room through the eyes of Isaiah and get a glimpse of His holiness. We will be overwhelmed by Christ’s sufficiency to completely forgive our sin and rejoice in His power to change us into brand new creations for His glory. Don’t miss it! Childcare is available if needed. For more information contact Amy Martin at 601-818-7273 or amy.martin@me.com.
 
 
 
 
Online Giving Online giving is now available at VGBC! (Traditional cash or check giving is still an option.) Tithe.ly is a new online feature available through the VGBC website or phone app. In the VGBC app, a new Giving function has been added to the menu. This feature can also be accessed at www.vgbc.org/give. Tithe.ly requires a convenience fee, which the giver can choose to cover, if they wish. Another alternative electronic giving option is “bill pay” offered by most banking institutions. This can often be managed through your bank’s app. This feature is typically free and used for giving and general bill paying. Contact your bank for more info on this detail. If you experience technical difficulties with online giving through the VGBC website or the Tithe.ly app, please contact Dannie for support at danielle.doyle@vgbc.org.
