Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. [More]

Sunday, December 10 - Christmas program at VMRC, instead of at the church. Why not share our Christmas with others, right? It will be held in Detwiler Auditorium beginning at 6:50 pm. Since we usually have a snack time following the Christmas program, we'd like to give each person present a cookie or two. If five families/persons would make two dozen each, that would be it! Thanks for sharing some Christmas joy! Contact Dick Good for more info or to sign up to make cookies.
