Hosted by VGBC, Perspectives begins Jan. 11. A $100/person scholarship is available to the first 15 people who register at perspectives.org. Use code VGB100. This 15-week course is designed to help believers learn more about God’s heart for all nations and how believers worldwide can play an active role in the Great Commission. Click to learn more.

 

Mercy’s Gate Donations

Sturdy empty plastic bottles (16-18 oz) are needed. They will be filled with laundry

detergent for their clientele. Please rinse well and drop them off in the collection

chest in the foyer.
 

Lottie Moon Christmas

Your offering transforms lives by providing missionaries the services they need to live among the unreached people they serve. 100% of your gifts to IMB directly fund ministry overseas. VGBC’s goal is $105,000.

 

2021 Contributions

All 2021 contributions to VGBC need to be delivered to Kim Carmichael at the church office no later than noon on Thursday, Dec. 30, or be postmarked by Dec. 31. The church office will be closed on Dec. 31. Contributions submitted after this time will be applied toward 2022 contribution statements.

Thank you for joining us for worship at VGBC.
 
If you are visitor, we are delighted you chose to worship with us.  We have a gift for you, so please visit the Welcome Desk before or after the service. We would love to share with you how you can get connected. 
   
We have online giving on our church app. Also, we have offering plates at the back of the Worship Center at the end of each service.  While you are welcome to give, all we ask of our guests is to visit us at the Welcome Desk near the entry! 
 
 
 

Scripture of the Week

Though he was in the form of God, [he] did not count equality with God a thing to

be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the

likeness of men. 

Philippians 2:6-7
