Vineyard Institute Winter Session opening

How do you hear God calling you? How do you know you have heard God accurately? Did you know that discovering your passion and spiritual gifts are very closely related to knowing your calling to ministry? Vineyard Institute (VI) exists as a global education provider to equip the people of God to pursue the call to go out into the world as workers of the harvest, whether that calling is a disciple in the workplace and community, a parent, a small group leader, ministry worker, missionary, church- planter or a pastor. Contact Josh Hopping at joshhopping@gmail.com (208-371-9865) for information about the VI Student Cohort at Vineyard Boise. Also check out the VI website (www.vineyardinstitute.org) for more information about the program in general. New student application deadline is December 24th with Winter classes going from January 14th to March 24th.

Youth Camp Scholarships

Dear Vineyard Family,

Winter Camp has always been a “moment in time” when we are moved and touched by the Lord as we make space to hear from Him. We don’t want to turn anyone away from being able to go due to camp costs. This year we have 2 separate camps for the Jr. & Sr. High groups at Trinity Pines Cascade (Sr. High January 4-6 and Jr. High March 1-3), which is making camp a little more expensive at $135 per camper. Would you please pray and consider giving towards camp scholarships, to not only help teens attend but also help pay for our volunteer leaders? (Make note in the memo field on your checks: Youth Camp Scholarships). Thank you so much. ~ Sharon Prosch, Youth Pastor

Red Cross Blood Drive

The Red Cross is in critical need of blood and platelets due to the many natural disasters that have occurred across the country this year, as well as the fact that around the holidays accidents go up due to travel and donations go down. We have decided to host a second blood drive this year on Wednesday, November 21st from 10am-3pm in the Ezra Gym, and each person donating will receive a special T-shirt! To sign up, please visit www.redcrossblood.org and use sponsor code “vineyard”. See Tempe at the counter in Heritage Hall with questions! Each donation has the ability to save up to three lives!
