Vineyard 101: Welcome to the Vineyard Family  

Our summer Vineyard 101 class will be on Tuesday nights (July 18, 25, August 1, 8)) at 6:30pm in the chapel. If you are new to the Vineyard, or just want to get connected, this four-week class will walk you through our vision, mission, heart and practice of making the Invisible God Visible. You’ll get a tour of our campus, meet some of our staff pastors and leaders, and have an opportunity to ask questions about what we believe as a church and how we live it out. Childcare is provided for the class. For more information, come see us at the Welcome Center in Heritage Hall, or sign up for the class on today’s vMail, sign up below or email Lori Thompson.

July Movie Night is Almost Here

Movie Nights are here again: This month is The Princess Bride on July 21. (Aug. 18 will be Lego Batman). Each year we get throw a party for the community of Garden City. We put a huge blow up screen on the field, have free concessions: popcorn, ice cream, glow sticks, games, crafts, and more... The heart behind movie nights is that we would be a physical example of God’s lavish love and grace on us. That through these movie nights, relationships would be fostered and people of all ages would know Jesus in a more intimate way. And we need your help to make this happen. If you’d like to pass out popcorn, help with crafts, or face painting, sign up below, visit the counter in Heritage Hall today, or email Angelia Jones.
