"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." (Eph. 2:10)
The theme for VLC this year is based on the truth of this scripture. The God responsible for all the beauty we see in nature and throughout the universe also created us to display His glory in the earth. Like a perfectly crafted poem or a masterpiece hanging on a gallery wall, others should see the skill and brilliance of the Artist as they view his work in us.
There are 4 areas of work we are highlighting throughout this year:
Invite someone to church
Reach out to one person and share the gospel with them
Disciple someone and develop deep relationships
Read through the Bible in a year
Record specific prayers and answers from God
Celebrate the activity of God in your life and the life of others
Identify your gifts ( https://gifts.churchgrowth.org )
Ask how you can serve at VLC
Serve throughout our ministry and in other opportunities in neighboring areas
We believe that giving should be done sacrificially . This can be done by committing to honor God in your giving and increasing the amount by 5% this year.
Giving should also be a joyful expression of faith and trust in God in response to who He is and what He has done.
It is also important that giving be done consistently because God uses our resources to support the local church and His work throughout the world.
