Please join us for the Operation Christmas Child Alameda County Annual Kick-Off Event! This year we have two speakers!

One is a woman named Nanor from the Middle East who received a shoebox gift as a child while living the first year of her life in a bomb shelter with 300 other people. When the war ended her family moved into a small village, but the country struggled economically. Receiving her shoebox gift brought hope in the worst of times as she discovered beautiful stationery, scented soap, and a Barbie doll she immediately loved. She was overwhelmed by the idea that someone who did not even know her would do something so nice. Nanor and the donor became penpals! Please join us for a special time of Nanor sharing her testimony.

We also have the Alameda County Team Leader, Traci, who will share about her recent trip to Liberia on a shoebox distribution trip! There will be shoebox materials and boxes you may pick-up, and stadium-style snacks, with a game table for the kids.

Contact Melanie (melaniece@aol.com) with any questions or to RSVP.

Antioch School Classes Beginning Soon.

  • 7106 Johnson Drive Pleasanton, CA, 94588 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

September 17th begins the fall semester for the Antioch School. Over the past eight years many believers have found significant benefit in their spiritual lives & ministries as a direct result of taking courses. The Antioch School seeks to prepare followers of Jesus with the training and tools to enhance their character & impact their ministry.

Students should plan on 2-4 hours of preparation time weekly. Class meetings are not lectures, but interactive - based upon their reading and preparation. No tests are given nor major papers written. One’s success is measured by competency in grasping significant biblical truths & their implementation. Students should expect to work in order to benefit.

First-time students will begin with “The Acts Course” which addresses our purpose and role as followers of Christ, both individually and corporately. The establishment & expansion of the kingdom of God, the church, will be studied in the New Testament as the model for today’s church.

For more information contact Nathan Baird (nathanb@thecrossing.org) or Gary Darnell (gary@thecrossing.org) at the VBC offices.
