We are going to be hosting four evenings of storytelling and teaching designed to connect you with the heart, vision and practices of WCV. Sometimes we all need a reminder of why we’re here, what God wants to do among us and through us, and what kind of community we are becoming. These evenings will do just that.
They are for newcomers to the community, old-timers who’ve been around forever, and anyone in between.
WCV’s Core Practices & Vineyard Values,
Where we’ve come from and where we’re going,
The kind of community God is calling us to become,
Four Thursday Evenings at 7pm.
Feb 11, 18, 25 & Mar 4.
Via Zoom (register to get the link).
Register here. Registered participants will receive a package in the mail. Be sure to register early to allow time for snail mail!
“You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you.
Hey WCV family – we’re going to be having a games night on Jan 1, 2021.
We are going to play a game called, “Who Said That?” It’s a Bible trivia game for players to identify the speaker, and for more points, the book, chapter and verse – making it fun for a wide variety of Bible scholarship. It would be great if we could have families sign up as a team so we can create a round-robin play, since it will work best if we have one team facing off against another team for a series of questions and then move on to another two teams, etc.
This season is one of re-connecting. All sorts of things begin to ramp up again after the summer. Here are a few of them:
Regular length services (10am – 11:45am) begin again on Sept 11. Kid’s church will also begin on this day.
Community Life Sunday is Sept 18. This is a Sunday during which we highlight a number of opportunities to connect in the Vineyard. On this particular Sunday, we’ll also be praying for a number of new leaders.
Welcome Party is Sept 18. These are for newcomers to the Vineyard and are a great opportunities to gather with a few leaders and other newcomers. We gather right after the service for a light lunch together. Contact the office to sign up. Kids are welcome.
The Upstairs Gathering will resume on Sept 25. We will be beginning the first number of Sundays with Prayer Ministry Training during the teaching time.
Connecting Classes start Sept 26. These are a series of 4 classes (Sept 26, Oct 3, Oct 17, Oct 24) that explore WCV’s vision, values and Core Practices. If you want to know more about WCV and if you’re looking for ways to connect, this is for you. Contact the office to sign up. 7 – 9pm.
Volunteer – there are many ways to get involved and volunteer your time and energy this season. Our Sunday gatherings are wonderful, but also need many hands. Sound people, Projectionists, Kids leaders and helpers, Coffee, Greeters, Offering. These are all great ways to build relationships and serve the community in meaningful ways. Contact the office for more information on any of the above opportunities.
House Groups – there are a few new groups beginning this Fall. House Groups are great ways to “do church” on a smaller scale. Watch for details.
Outer Circle – our final gathering of 2016 will be Oct 15.
