YPS Update, 8.25.14
The Youth Pastor Search Committee is extremely pleased to announce the church voted overwhelmingly to extend a call to Michael Lusk to become our youth minister at Vista Grande.  Michael accepted our call and should be here within the next several weeks.

Kati, Liliahna, Aleah and Cason will remain in Wylie for a few months while Kati teaches for a semester and sells their home.  We expect them here by December at the latest.   Let's all pray for the Lusk's as they make the transition and prepare to make the move to join our family at VGBC.

AWANA Leaders Needed

We are looking for leaders to help in all clubs for this year.  About 60 volunteers each week are needed to effectively run AWANA.  Contact Todd Frisbie if you have questions or would like to volunteer.

Prayer Corner

This week pray for . . . Vista Kids Preschool

“These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.  Impress them on your children.  Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”  Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (NIV)

As a new church ministry, Vista Kids Preschool will help your child grow in God's love through quality education.  Classes begin on September 3.  VKP will provide a foundation of early education based upon Biblical standards.  Pray for the hearts of the preschoolers to be open to the truth of God’s word and pray that the families who walk through the doors will feel and know the love of Christ.
