Last weekend was a great weekend, honoring our Veterans. I can’t thank you enough for helping with our drive-thru blessing event. Open Heavens with baptisms was amazing, we baptized 28 people and one of the folks who got baptized was a veteran! Thank you for giving and serving and helping us extend God’s Kingdom!
This weekend I will be doing the final installment of our Stronger Faith series. I’ll be speaking on prayer. Acts 12:1-18 recounts when Peter was in jail and all the believers were praying for him, and an angel appeared and escorted Peter out of prison. You never know what can happen when people are praying! If you missed any of the installments of the Stronger Faith series, both audio and video, and the notes, are all available on our website.

Last week during staff meeting, Joy Harvey, our children’s pastor shared with us that God had called her into a time of fasting… She is praying for breakthrough in finances, relationships and expansion of the Kingdom. As she was sharing with me and our staff, I felt compelled to share it with you as well… to invite you to join in this experience. Perhaps you need a breakthrough or simply want to draw closer to the Lord. Or you could simply pray for our staff, volunteers, mission and alignment. We believe God is going speak to us all during this time. You can fast at whatever level suits you… a day here and there, or a few days… ending on Thanksgiving Day. Some people may drink only water, some allow themselves limited food, or you could just eliminating something like coffee until Thanksgiving. We would love to have you join us in this effort.
We are very excited to invite you to our upcoming Vineyard Art Show! This event celebrates the artisans in our church family… our painters, writers, dancers, and musicians that serve on the creative arts team will have items available for purchase after each service THIS WEEKEND!
