Please let your pastor and church members know about this event. We want to “pack out the gym” for this Christ-honoring event.

The senior class is selling Chick-fil-A Calendars for 2015 to help offset the cost of their senior trip in January. These high value calendars are available for purchase through any of the offices. The cost per calendar is $7, which is less than you can buy them for at the Chick-fil-A restaurants. These calendars will be available through December 22 and they make great Christmas presents! Please give us a call if you have any questions. Please note: each calendar includes a 2105 Calendar Card which you can use to receive the free item offered each month. This sale ends on December 22!
Please note that there will be no daycare provided on December 26. We will have daycare available on Friday, January 2 for parents that need this service and have students already enrolled.
A Christmas Carol
The 12th grade English classes are producing a rendition of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol for our 2nd through 6th grade students. The presentation will be a 1:30pm on Wednesday, December 17, in the Gym. All parents are welcomed to attend!
Prison Ministry Outreach
If you have any Bibles that your family is no longer using and would like to share with others less fortunate, please consider donating them to a prison outreach ministry. Just give them to any of the school offices and we will make sure they are put in the hands of men and women in prison that are seeking.
Pasta for Pennies
The “Pasta for Pennies” campaign is designed to raise funds for children that are fighting the battle against leukemia. The program will run through November 26. The class that raises the most money will get a FREE lunch from Olive Garden! Consider donating to this worthy cause.
Check your Inbox for an order form for VCS sweatshirts and fleece jackets for this winter season. Orders are due by November 26.

Word from My Heart
It’s that time of the year when I have very little space to write my “Word from My Heart.” Suffice it to say that I am thankful for your individual families and our BIG VCS Family. Thanksgiving is quickly approaching; please don’t wait until then to thank God for all He has given. We are a blessed people…tell someone today what he or she means to you.
