26th Church Anniversary on September 24th

September 12th, 2017

On Sunday, September 24th, we will celebrate our 26th church anniversary.  At 10am, Pastor Dennis Seely from Cornerstone Baptist Church in Carbonear, Newfoundland, will be preaching.  At 11am, I will be preaching from Jonah as I start a new expository series on Sunday mornings through the book of Jonah.  There is no evening service.  We invite you and your friends to attend this annual special event in our church as we focus on Christ and His establishment and on-going enablement of the Vaughan Baptist Church.  There is a meal following the service as our people are bringing side dishes and desserts with the church providing chicken and pork.  We are so grateful for the many people through the years who have attended and served in some capacity to help our Saviour’s work here.  The Lord has always provided a team of Spirit-led workers, unified by a solemn and solitary passion, to sustain us as we genuinely endeavour  to honour the Scriptures, all of them, both in adherence and in ministry.  If you are unable to come, we ask for your prayers.

The Vaughan Baptist Christian Academy is now beginning its 5th year.   Though we had three students move from the area over the summer, the Lord has provided three more to bring our total enrolment to sixteen for this year.  Grades one through ten are offered.  Your prayers for the school ministry are also much appreciated.

It was a very busy church ministry summer with baptisms, three Friend Day BBQ’s, missionary speakers, and Revival Meetings.

We have some great things planned for the fall, and would love for you to be a part of it!

Let Christ give you the spiritual stability to survive in this very unstable world.  May the hope of His soon return keep you faithful and focused on the right things.  While we are busy with His business, may the joys and peace of our salvation satisfy us wholly!  God bless.

Pastor’s Pen – October 3, 2016

October 3rd, 2016

On Sunday, September 18th, we celebrated our 25th church anniversary with a record attendance of 335. The aim was to magnify the Lord for His faithfulness to us through the years. The theme verse was: “That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ” (Ephesians 1:12).  We praise Him for 2 souls saved!

Pastor Dennis Seely from Cornerstone Baptist Church in Carbonear, Newfoundland, preached a stirring sermon at 10am while Pastor William Adams preached at 11am on the subject: “The Next 25: Now What?”  His text was based on Jesus’ commendation to the church at Thyatira in Revelation 2:19.

A number of  “old timers” were back to renew the wonderful memories of years past.  Among those items given out were special anniversary coffee mugs and the latest edition of The Anchor.   On the walls and hallways were placed pictures depicting the people of VBC throughout the years.   The food and fellowship were a bountiful blessing.  The 30 member choir special under the direction of Pastor James Hird and pianist Christal Adams was inspiring while the congregational singing was very enthusiastic.

Now that these 25 years are behind us, we press onward, by His grace, endeavouring to fulfill His purposes in the next 25, should He tarry.

On Saturday, September 24th, our church family went to Albion Hills for a time of food, fun, and fellowship.  The highlight of the event was at night hearing the testimonies around the bonfire while we sang and heard instruments play.

On Sunday, November 6th, Missionary to Belize, Daniel Dinsmore, will be with us at 10am and 11am.

On Sunday, December 4th, we will hold our annual Christmas Cantata at 11am.  This is a Christmas play with actors and special music.  All are invited to help us celebrate the birth of our Saviour.
