Throughout the month of January, Village Baptist Church will present a sermon series using the word BLESS as an acronym to communicate the importance of blessing others. BLESS is an individual strategy used to keep one focused on sharing the good news of Jesus with others. BLESS means: Be in prayer, Listen to others, Engage others, Serve others and Share Jesus. The community is welcome to join as the church explores from scripture the calling to be a BLESSing to the community. Worship service is at 10:10 a.m.
