Spring was certainly evident in the VSBC Sanctuary, with new window decorations and plant arrangements throughout. Guests and members remembered Palm Sunday as they progressed through Worship.
The service began with Deacon Donnie Aebersold reading Hosea 6:1-3 and saying a prayer. Worship Leaders Jacob and Jaime Hatcher led the gathered through some songs.
- Hosanna (Praise is Rising)

A time of greeting one another was given, then Associate Pastor Brandon Saunders gave some announcements:

- The Person of Jesus study tonight covers Romans 12
- Business Meeting after tonight’s study

Brandon said a pastoral prayer, including those killed in an Egyptian church bombing, then the service continued with the offering. Jacob sang Oh Heart Bereaved and Lonely as a special song for the congregation to contemplate the meaning of the lyrics, then invited everyone to stand and sing Here I Am to Worship together.
