Sunday, December 4th will be our last night of praise for 2016!  During praise we will also be holding our last Baptism for this year. It will be during praise…during the Christmas season, awesome! If you want to be baptized, you MUST attend a mandatory meeting on Tuesday of that week. Tuesday, November 29th at 7:00PM at VGF, please attend the baptism meeting.  If you cannot make that meeting, please contact Marilyn Schouten.


Life Groups - The Christian life is not meant to be lived alone. Here at VGF we believe that we grow best and our community is reached best when we do so in community with each other. 

Third Friday of Each Month at 7:00PM

There is a fellowship of ultimate proportions as we gather together for a time of sharing about God’s faithfulness here at VGF. Please join us, if you have never been to a Connect Coffee House or if you have not visited in a while, we would love to reconnect. Childcare is offered for free.
