Vineyard Christian Academy: Enroll Now!

Our school year is off to a great start! It's not too late to join our Vineyard Christian Academy family. VCA provides an educational experience in which Academy teachers give AdancedEd level instruction, blended with home-based, parent-supported learning.

Our desire is to come alongside parents to give them the gift of time with their children and to support them in raising their children to become successful academically, spiritually, and socially. Visit our website and call to schedule a tour today: Annie Anderson 208-407-8197.

Sacred Journeys: An Invitation to Transformation

Spiritual transformation is the process by which Christ is formed in us...for the glory of God, for the abundance of our own lives, and for the sake of others. As believers, we can desire transformation, but not know quite where to start. Or sometimes, we enter seasons of faith that feel stagnant and dry.

If you sense a desire to go deeper in your journey with Jesus, join us for a 6-week introductory look at the process and path of spiritual transformation. We will meet in the Chapel on Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm starting October 9th. The cost will be $15 and you can sign up at vineyardboise.org/go or email amber.gunstream@vineyardboise.org with questions.

Our Vineyard 101 'Welcome to the Vineyard Family' class is a place to learn more about Vineyard Boise: who we are as a church, what we do as a body of believers, what we believe, how we grow together, plus what your special gifts are and where you can get connected.

October's V101 will be one day: Saturday, October 20th from 9am-4:30pm in the Chapel, with childcare available for kids under 10 years old. Please be sure to pick up a V101 packet at the Welcome Center on Sunday or the Reception Desk in the office lobby Monday-Thursday 9am-5pm prior to coming to class.

Plumbline Workshop this Fall

Plumbline is being offered once this Fall in its original workshop setting. Plumbline is a bit of a roto-rooter of the soul, providing vital insights into who we are and how we got here and then giving us keys to help us enter into the freedom Christ desires for us. Too often we let pain and past issues keep us stuck in less than helpful ruts of behavior. Plumbline is here to help us get unstuck and moving forward again. This class has been taught at Vineyard Boise for over 30 years, helping hundreds to find healing from spiritual and emotional issues. Space is limited, so reserve your spot today! The Fall Plumbline workshop will be held October 17-19 on the Vineyard Boise campus (mostly). Wednesday and Thursday are evening sessions, Friday is all day. Sorry, no childcare is provided. The cost is $75 per person, which includes meals on Friday. For more information, contact John Ward at 208-860-3998 or via email Jandjward2@q.com.

i-61 Mission Connect Meeting "The Poverty Mindset"

Please join us as our guest teacher Ed Lee helps us explore the poverty mindset. Poverty is not just a lack of resources, but a worldview that keeps people trapped in systems that perpetuate poverty. Come explore God's heart for the vulnerable and discover how you can have a bigger impact in your own mission field. Please join us Thursday, October 25 from 6:30-8:30pm at Vineyard's Front Porch on Chinden.

Prophecy Seminar

A non-religious look at prophecy and the prophetic. This seminar is designed to help you move into a New Testament life of prophetic activity. Opening ourselves to the Holy Spirit so that He can impart life-giving words of strength, encouragement, and comfort to others through us is a beautiful thing! A prerequisite for this class is that you have attended Walkin’ in the Kingdom. The seminar is offered on Saturday, October 27 from 9am until late afternoon. Registration is $10.

Marriage Renovation- Spots still open!

Marriage Renovation is a 4-day adventure to grow in intimacy with your spouse and God through an experience-based learning process that will engage you intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.

We combine brief instruction followed by various exercises and activities that promote self-discovery and reinforce the concepts that are being taught.

Our focus will be on the foundational principles for establishing and maintaining a healthy and intimate marriage by examining both the inner life of the individual as well as the marriage relationship. Marriage Renovation will be held October 18-21 at the Nazareth Retreat Center.

Check-in is on Thursday, October 18th at 6pm and the training ends on Sunday, October 21st around 5:30 pm. The cost is $250 per couple.

Kids of the Kingdom: We need you to open the door for them

It is our vision at Vineyard Boise that our children would inherit the Kingdom NOW, not later.

Jesus says, “...these children are the very center of life in the kingdom.” (Mark 10:14 msg) and "to such belong the kingdom of heaven,..." (Luke 18:16 esv)

The kingdom is theirs! Please partner with us and the Holy Spirit to open the door for our children to learn to 'eat and drink' from the Source. Revival here will last more than a generation because we will train our children to seek His heart. We will continue to teach them the Bible, as this is part of the foundation of our faith. We will also invite teachers from Vineyard Boise who 'live' the Bible to come and train our children to follow Jesus. Join us, even just once in a while; who knows what fruit will come from the seed you scatter! Visit us at the counter in Heritage Hall today for more info.
