Celebration of Blessings Sunday - June 18!
Celebration of Blessings Sunday
There were seven holidays in the Jewish calendar. These were times of feasting AND praising. The church had gradually moved away from the party by the time Jesus arrived on the scene. But, Jesus enjoyed that kind of gathering. He even dined with sinners, and at one event he turned water into wine. Sometimes I think we need to remember that we, of all people, should be about joy. And that is best experienced together. Did you ever notice how contagious a smile is?
Right now, in the life of Village Bible Church, we have several great reasons to party and praise. And so, we have planned to do so.
On June 18, we will hold an experience we call C.O.B.S.: Celebration of Blessings Sunday. Beginning at 9:15 on that morning we will hear of the history of Village Bible Church and God’s faithful blessings for this 35th anniversary of our founding. It is only appropriate that we honor our founding fathers (and mothers) on this Father’s Day. We stand on the shoulders of those who have come before. We will take a break following the regular service time and enjoy a special snack honoring the payoff of our building mortgage. Then, during what would normally be the Bible School hour we will continue the celebration. Psalm 47:1 will guide us – “O clap your hands, all peoples; Shout to God with the voice of joy.”
You will hear about how it all started at VBC. We will praise God together as we learn of His great provision for us. You have joined the ranks of faithful and can now take pleasure in the burning of the mortgage and 35-year parade of believers.
But, there is more. This year also marks the 20th anniversary of Pastor Mark’s ministry here as Senior Pastor. Joining together we will rejoice in that accomplishment as well. There may even be something that will surprise him.
Don’t forget to save the date – June 18.
Come CELEBRATE With Us!!
