Part of VCC's ministry is First Impressions, a very good system of greeting newcomers and meeting the needs of members and guests alike. This program was implemented by Scotty Sanders and his Admin Assistant who helped tremendously in this ministry was Amy! A week ago it was good to see Amy hanging out at guest central along with Chrislyn. Amy, Tommie, Franklin and Truman have moved to the midwest for a new career opportunity. Amy and Tommie were part of our small group and we miss them. Check out Amy's blog by clicking HERE.

With the exception of our pregnant staff (Rachel & Sarah) and Collin, our graphic designer who was ill, we had pretty much the whole staff there. With 8 folks ready to rumble, we begin our training on the Segway.
It was really pretty cool. The Segway is very pricey too... about 6k a piece. So the instructors were very strict about how we handled the units. Several of us were scolded a bit for going too fast or "burning rubber". But for the most past, we all finished the tour in one piece without damaging the segways.

most mothers would be reunited with their children on this day. Most
historians believe that young apprentices and young women in servitude
were released by their masters that weekend in order to visit their
As a result of secularization, it is now principally used to celebrate
and give thanks for mothers, although it is still recognised in the
historical sense by some churches, with attention paid to Mary the
mother of Jesus as well as the traditional concept "Mother Church".

VCC Staff was on Retreat this past week. We visited The Fish In Midtown Dallas. Only 6 of the 12 were willing to sample the raw fish. Jenny H. thought she was ordering cooked salmon! Other than the Filet Mignon, Ben found refuge in the fancy restrooms.
