Equipping The Saints
Women of VCB, join us on Saturday, February 17th from 9 to Noon for our next Equipping the Saints mini-conference, A High View of God! as we learn what it means to be undone by the KING of Kings and the LORD of Lords who is high and lifted up! We live what we believe about God. Join us as we hear from God Himself the declarations of His intrinsic glory!!!
 
Equipping the Saints conferences begin with a teaching time followed by discipleship groups in which there is deeper discussion, a walk through application, accountability and prayer one for another. We encourage each woman, as she is able, to bring a dish or treat to share. There is no cost for attending the mini-conference. Childcare will be provided.
