Village Bible Church
Teaching the Bible with Clarity and Compassion
Welcome to Our Church Family!
Today is September 22nd, 2019
We gather to worship the one true and triune God of the Bible: Father, Son and Holy Spirit! Please take a moment before we begin and ask him to fill your life and our worship with the blessing of His presence.
We are working our way through the entire Bible
in a study called “God’s Story”.
Today’s message is from
II Thessalonians…Christ is Coming
(II Thessalonians can be found on page 995 in the pew bible.)
Children are dismissed for Super Church during the sermon portion of the worship service. Children through grade 4 meet downstairs. Middle-schoolers stay in the sanctuary today. The following leaders will lovingly supervise and teach your children:

*Saturday, October 12th is the Christian Aftercare Ministry (CAM) annual banquet at 1st Congregational Church in Manchester, 6:00pm. Our church is once again sponsoring a table and inviting you to attend with the goal of getting more folks from our church family interested and aware of the local ministries we support. We have made a donation so there is no cost to you, but it is a fundraiser and a request for support should be anticipated. Please see Pastor Mike or Michelle, table hosts, to attend.
*If you have never attended one of these annual banquets, please consider it. Real Options is another coming up on October 18. These ministries are important and depend on our individual and congregational support.
