DEACONS OF THE WEEK
The following deacons are available for you to contact with any ministry needs:

Larry Dick & Forest Robertson: (719-598-2139)

3rd & 4th Grade Children’s Church

Today there is no Children’s Church for 3rd & 4th grade (during 10:45 worship).  This class does not meet the first Sunday of each month allowing them to participate in the worship service with their families.

 

Mission Control Tea Groups
Our missionaries around the world need your prayers!  Join a Tea Group; they are held once a month and meet at a variety of times.  (See the bulletin calendar for this week’s upcoming meetings.)  For more info, contact Jerri or Janette Hill.

 

Benevolence Offering
Following today’s worship services, a benevolence offering will be collected by the deacons to help individuals in need.  If you would like to give to this fund, please hand your donation to a deacon standing at the doors of the worship center as you leave.

 

RefresHER

Ladies, join us for RefresHER, Saturday, October 19, from 9 am—2 pm.  There will be breakout sessions, a catered lunch, fellowship, and fun!  Childcare is available with reservations made by October 15.  Register at www.vgbc.org/refresher or at the info booth.  Cost: $5
 

Nursery Help

If you love babies (and who doesn’t!) we could use your help.  We’ll provide the little ones and the rockers; you provide a big heart and a willingness to serve.  If that sounds like a good match, please contact Valerie at kitchenka@msn.com.  Just a few more volunteers are needed on Sunday mornings during both services. 

 
Fall Festival Is Coming!
Leaves are falling and daylight is fading, which means the Fall Festival is just around the corner!  Join us Friday, October 25, from 6-8 pm.  This free event is for the entire family and includes:  bounce houses, hayride, cake walk, face painting, and lots of food and games.  BUT we need your help in all these areas to make it a successful evening. Be a volunteer and sign up at www.vgbc.org/fallfestival.  Don’t forget . . .  you can drop off sealed bags of candy in the chest located in the main foyer.  Let’s make it a really fun night for the kids!

 

Birthday Card Reminder
Our missionary in Asia, Celeste’s birthday is in November.  Celeste loves birthday cards, so we thought it would be fun to provide her with many!  Drop off cards at the church office before October 31.  Please use only her real name and avoid using religious phrases.

 

Men’s Ministry Breakfast
All men & boys are invited to breakfast on Saturday, October 12.  Coffee & fellowship begin at 7 am, breakfast at 7:30 am.  The devotion is led by Devin Knuckles.  Please click to RSVP or by calling the church office.
