Micah’s Closet Food Pantry

This is quite an increase from 2018, when we distributed 495 day packs and 115 boxes/bags of groceries. Praise the Lord! Thank you so much! We could not do it without your help! The pantry is in need of 8oz water bottles, small boxes of raisins, cans of Rotel and bags of dried pinto beans.

The Upper Room Daily Devotional
The Upper Room daily devotional magazine is available in the Narthex and Great Hall prior to worship while supplies last. Suggested donation is $1.25. It is also available online from upperroom.org for those who prefer a digital copy. Your VCI Discipleship team hopes that those who do not currently use a daily devotional guide will take one and give it a try beginning January 1. The magazine provides a practical way to listen to scripture, connect with believers around the world, and spend time with God each day.
