Easter Encounter Stories Needed
We are looking for Jesus (Easter) stories and Holy Spirit (Pentecost) stories. Life-changing stories of encounters with Jesus that changed the trajectory of your life. And stories of encounters with the Holy Spirit that empowered you to impact others for Christ (healing, prayer, word-sharing… other assorted God moments.) We’ll be using these stories as we connect Easter to Pentecost and potentially share them on a Sunday morning. Upload your unpolished video; we’d like to hear your voice share your story. Go to vineyardboise.org/encounter to submit your encounter stories. Questions? Email Mitchell Maldonado.
Parents' Night Out
Do you have kids? Would you like a wee break from those kids? Announcing Parent’s Night Out! Starting this month, we will be offering 3 hours of free childcare (ages 0-12) once a month here at the church so that parents can have a chance to get out on their own. We are restricting it to the first 25 kids to sign up, and to make things fair to all, we are requesting you skip months so that other parents have a chance to get out!
First Parent’s Night Out will be on March 25th from 5-8 pm. If you have any questions, email Elizabeth Sutton.
Children’s Easter Event Volunteers and Donations Needed
On April 15th we will be hosting our Easter Egg hunt for the kids of Garden City and Vineyard Boise. But we need your help! Please bring plastic Easter eggs, stickers and candy to the baskets in Heritage Hall over the next few weeks. Also, if you’d like to help stuff eggs, or help put on the event, please sign up in Heritage Hall. Questions? Email Rachel Freeman.
