Twenty-six years ago, I was volunteering at school with another mom when she invited disconnected me to VRBC. We were delighted to be led to VRBC.
I am grateful to the many amazing Christ-followers at VRBC who spiritually nurtured and taught my children about Jesus through Sunday School, children’s choir, youth Winter Weekends, Wednesday night groups, 86:12, church camps, and mission trips. Because of the commitment of these adults who invested in my children’s lives, my kids accepted Jesus into their hearts.
When I had four teenagers and was extremely busy, a woman who was twenty years younger than I was persistently invited me to participate in an in-depth Bible Study at VRBC until I finally agreed to come. I learned even more about Jesus through people who cared about me and wanted me to love Jesus not just on Sundays.
I am thankful for all that VRBC continues to offer me and my family, including preaching, teaching, mission and service opportunities, wonderful worship experiences, Christian community with friendships, and most importantly, the continuous reminder that God loves each one of us and wants us to passionately follow Jesus together.
I praise and thank God for VRBC!
