Football and marriage are a lot alike. Both rely on communication, chemistry, team work and a little finesse. When all goes well, it’s art! But when it breaks down, it’s not so pretty. You probably know the basics of football; do you know the basics of marriage?

On May 2nd starting at 6:30 pm and May 3rd starting at 8:30 am Mitch and Teresa Pennington will once again be hosting an Art of Marriage Seminar at Heavens Landing Retreat in Medley, WV. The cost will be $60 a couple. For details call or email Mitch and Teresa Pennington at 304-749-7000 or tgp@citlink.net.


Easter is about a month away, but we want to make sure everyone is in the know. We will not have two services on Easter Sunday. Instead, we’ll combine the 9 and 11:15 services, and meet at Moorefield Middle School at 10 A.M. How incredible will it be to have all of our BVC family together to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ! I’m getting exited just typing this!

Don’t worry, Ms. Lindsay and her outstanding Children’s Department Staff already have plans for our children and the Praise Team will be there too!

Help us spread the word – we don’t want anyone to miss out on this.


We are beyond excited to announce that we have finalized arrangements for Chad Furlong and iThink Assemblies’ third visit to our area schools. During the week of April 7th, school assemblies will be held at Petersburg High School, East Hardy Early Middle School, East Hardy High School, Moorefield Middle School and Moorefield High School.

For all the students that attended the assemblies during the week, there will be an “After Party” Friday, April 11th at 7:00 p.m. at Moorefield Middle School.

If you’re wondering what all the hype is about, talk to a few kids that have participated the last couple of years. The iThink team is comprised of young people that can relate to our youth about real life situations they face everyday.


Thankfully, the closest most of us get to Human Trafficking is a documentary on TV or reading a news article, but sadly this epidemic affects thousands of people each year. A missions team from D.C., including Moorefield native McKenzie Clark, will be going to India, considered by some to be the epicenter of Human Trafficking, to help provide restorations to victims. Below is a brief note from Mckenzie about her trip and their goals.

“On February 12th, I will be traveling to India as a member of a mission team from National Community Church in D.C. to help victims of human trafficking. My team of nine will be partnering with organizations such as the International Justice Mission (IJM) in Mumbai and then traveling to Pune to help an organization called Sparsh which works with children who are at risk to be sold into slavery. Our mission is to bring hope and joy into the lives of women and children who have been used and abused by this horrendous industry.

In the summer of 2011, I was able to live in Israel for two months while studying the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This experience opened my eyes to hurt and suffering beyond what many of us will ever know in our lifetime. Since my experience living in the Middle East, I have felt called to travel to these places, connect with people, give them hope, and most importantly, share it with others.

I have been blessed beyond my wildest imaginations with family and friends who have made these experiences possible for me. Although I will never be able to truly repay them, the best I can do is make their support go far enough to change a life, even if it is for one moment.

Our group’s prayer is that our heart’s will be broken from what we have seen, but that we will know God sees all (Psalm 33:13-15) and remain steadfast that our job is to let the world know that He has forgotten no one. (John 14:18)
