Is it really true that I can finish the Growth Track in just 2 weeks?
Yes! We are fast tracking the Growth Track. On Sunday, January 24th we will offer Belong 101 and Essentials 201. Then on Sunday, January 31st it’s Discovery 301 and Dream Team 401.
Our Growth Track is designed to help you take your next steps in faith. We’ll have a great lunch and childcare will be provided. Sign up this Sunday using your About You card, or online.
What can I do to help VC get on their land?
I’m so thankful for the 18 acres God’s given us at the corner of Vint Hill and Kettle Run. He gets all the credit for that one.
We saw some wonderful breakthroughs in the dream of a future home in 2015 – the beginning of our site plan, the survey work, and the idea of converting the existing structures for worship.
All of those things are still in the works. By the way, here’s an idea of what the barn could look like if converted to a church.
What could you do to help? As you drive by the church property on your way to worship, or during the week, say a prayer of thanksgiving and faith. You could pray something like this, “God thanks for the miracle of this property. What an awesome location. I’m asking for a church home for VC on this land. Thank you for providing for every need.”
Let’s make a habit of doing this every time we drive by. Let’s join in faith and unity and believe God will accomplish the dream for his glory. Matthew 7:7 says, “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.”
What makes a great Dream Team?
I’m so thankful for the members of our Dream Team. That’s the talented group that makes ministry happen each Sunday.
Great teams are made up of talented people who are willing to put aside their egos, personal agendas, and preferences for the good of the team. As the saying goes, “There is no I in team.” Winning teams have members who are willing to say, “It’s not about me. I’ll do whatever it takes to win. Show me where you need me.”
Great teams are also in agreement on what a “win” looks like. What’s the win for us at VC? A win happens whenever someone makes a decision to follow Jesus. That’s what it’s all about.
If you would like to join the team and help us win more for Jesus Christ that’s fantastic. We have a place for you! I hope you’ll join the upcoming Growth Track to find out more.
When is our next series starting?
On Sunday, January 24th we’re launching a new series on marriage called “From this Day Forward.” Great marriages don’t just happen. They take time, energy, and prayer, but it’s more than worth it. I believe God wants to help us take our marriages to the next level of joy. This series will provide hope and encouragement. Invite a friend.
When is the next session of life groups?
Life groups get together to do life, grow in faith, and friendship. We’re kicking off the next life group session in February. If you would like to lead a group we ask that you take the Growth Track if you’ve not done so. Also, there will be a Life Group Leader training on Sunday, February 7th after service. You can sign up for both using your About You card or at the Connection Table this Sunday.
Is there anything going on for teens at VC?
Yes! Every Wednesday we have a youth life group that meets at the property from 7 to 8:15 PM. For this next session of life groups I’ll be leading this exciting time. If you’re in junior high or high school I hope you’ll join us. Over the next few weeks we’re going to focus on the young people in the Bible who were mightily used of God. We’ll also have some fun activities as well.
I’m so thankful to be your pastor!
