MVBC Family Happenings
In the month of January, it is customary to celebrate the biblical truth that life is sacred. Many churches celebrated Sanctity of Life Sunday last week. Please consider picking up one of the baby bottles used to collect money to support the Real Options Pregnancy Center in our area (see the link below). I would also like to point out that life is sacred at every age. Every person who has ever lived has borne the image of God. We are taught this in Scripture, yet so often we are characterized by esteeming certain people and not esteeming others. Let’s seek to live out our Christian faith this year by loving all the people God brings into our life, no matter how their views and practices may be different than ours. Let’s love them like Jesus loves them. Please join us this Sunday for a time of corporate worship. We will continue our study of First John chapter four. 
Baby Bottle Benefit

We have partnered again this year to participate in Real Options' Baby Bottle Benefit. Real Options is a faith-based, non-profit ministry. The pregnancy center ministry is rooted in the compassion and love of Jesus Christ; which addresses the needs of women and empowers them to make life-affirming choices.
