CHURCH UPDATES DURING COVID-19

July 31:


Dear Vineyard Family,
     Thank you. Thank you for your loving cooperation with our decisions. Thank you for being true to yourself in deciding when it is the right time for you to return to worship services. Thank you for your continuing faithfulness to your tithes and offerings, and thank you for your consistent prayer support as we move through these challenging times together.  I just want to say, “thank you”.
 
     I am also looking forward to bringing a message of thanksgiving this coming Sunday morning.  I hope you will be able to join us in person or via Facebook Live. Last week we focused our attention on mourning.  We freely grieved before the Lord and it was a very special time in His Presence.  I have received a lot of positive feedback from last Sunday.  This week, we will move forward with the second of my three questions in this series – “What are you thankful for?”  We will celebrate together the things we still have, and the new things that have emerged from this time.  We will joyfully thank the Lord for His abundant mercies in our lives.
 
    We will also celebrate communion together.  We will once again use the communion “Celebration Packet” for those who are present in the building and in the parking lot.  For those who are planning to join us online, I encourage you to prepare some simple elements of bread and juice or wine so that you too may celebrate the Lord’s Supper with us.  Even though we may be physically separated, I know the Lord can draw us together by His Spirit as we take the bread and the cup together.
 
     We continue to prayerfully move forward in the safest ways we can.  I know we all long for the way things used to be, but I am excited to know that the Lord continues to move among us even in these times.  Thank you again for your loving cooperation and faithful support as we make our way into Lord’s future for us as a fellowship.
 
Many Blessings,
Pastor Tom

"a church for people who didn't think they'd like church"

You may have heard it said before, "just come as you are". But we REALLY mean it! Come as yourself, with all your baggage. We don't want the cleaned up version of you. We want the real you, and so does Jesus!

So, please...come as you are. Our service times are on Sundays at 9 & 10:30 a.m.
