What To Expect

Biblical Preaching

The Bible is God’s authoritative, sufficient, and inerrant Word, so we believe we must teach and preach every verse and even every word of the Bible. We also believe that we must preach what the original author meant, rather than what we want the Bible to mean.

Because of these convictions, we typically teach through whole books of the Bible rather than jumping from passage to passage or topic to topic. We are better able to understand the author’s point when we understand the entire book in context. This is known as expository preaching, and we believe it is vital to the health of believers individually and the church as a whole.

Many of our church’s sermons are recorded and available if you wish to listen.

Sermons

Preaching at VCBC is primarily expositional. We seek to give the meaning of a particular biblical passage, and most often are studying passage-by-passage through a particular book of the Bible. All preaching is Christ-centered and gospel-driven, with sermons usually lasting around 35 minutes.

Music

The music we sing at VCBC is a blend of old and new. We enjoy a careful mix of older, doctrinally rich hymns together with newer hymns and choruses.  We view the music ministry of a church as a God-given means of teaching and admonishing one another.

Worship Service

Our focus is on God-Centered worship. We sing several songs, listen to the reading of Scripture, offer prayer to God, give our offerings to the Lord and sit under the preaching of God’s Word.

Detailed Service Information

We have services several times a week and would love to see you at any of our upcoming meetings!

Children’s Sunday School | 9:00 am

Our children’s class is taught concurrently with the adult Sunday School service. It includes a variety of topics and studies geared for children with the goal of better understanding God’s Word and His expectations for their lives.

Adult Sunday School | 9:00 am

Our adult Sunday School class is purposeful but varied in our topics and format. Our purpose of this time is to teach and further equip our people to understand God’s Word better and to serve Him and disciples otter’s more effectively. Topics vary from in-depth Bible studies of particular passages, to discipleship curriculum and current trending topics of interest related to church ministry.

Sunday Morning Service | 10:00-11:15 am

Our focus is on God-Centered worship. We sing several songs, listen to the reading of Scripture, offer prayer to God, give our offerings to the Lord and sit under the preaching of God’s Word.

Sunday Evening Service | 6:00 pm

At 6:00 p.m. we gather as a church for a family time of singing, testimony, and Bible study. We seek to praise the Lord for who He is and what He’s doing in our lives. The service concludes around 7:15 p.m. with a hymn and reflection on what we learned from God’s Word and each other. People often stay after the service to enjoy talking to each other.

Wednesday Evening Service | 6:30 pm

For members and guests, the majority of our “Prayer Meeting” is just that—a time of various aspects of prayer together. We begin by praising our Lord in singing to prepare our hearts further for prayer. We then divide up into smaller groups for more specific prayer. We often close our time with a brief study in God’s Word. Since many come straight from work or dinner, there is a variety of dress from casual to business.

PLEASE NOTE: Our nursery is available during all church services.

Our Pastor

Pastor Brock Mawdesley grew up in Michigan in a Christian home where he accepted Jesus as his Savior as a child. After graduating from college and beginning a career in graphic design, he felt the Lord’s call to full time vocational ministry. Pastor Mawdesley pursued further education at Bob Jones University Seminary and graduated in 2006 with an M.A. in Pastoral Studies and a Master of Divinity degree. In 2008, God called the Mawdesleys to Upper Cross Roads Baptist Church in Baldwin, Maryland, where Pastor Mawdesley served as the ministry’s youth pastor. In September of 2019, the Mawdesleys once again felt God moving them and Pastor Mawdesley accepted the position of senior pastor at Village Chapel Baptist Church in Weare, New Hampshire.
