A Ransom for Many
Dr. Chris Moore
Jesus came to serve
Jesus came to serve to provide an example
Jesus came to serve to provide an example and to provide more than an example



Promotion Sunday

Promotion Sunday is August 15. Kids and youth will promote to the next grade. Yay!


Benevolence Offering

Following today’s worship services, a benevolence offering will be collected by the deacons to help individuals in need. If you would like to give to this fund, please hand your donation to a deacon standing at the doors of the worship center as you leave.


MOPS Play Date!

To all young moms at Vista Grande: You’re invited to join us for a Play Date at Jack Templeton Park (in the neighborhood just across Stetson Hills from the church) on Wednesday, August 18, from 9-11 am.  Whether you’ve been a part of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) or not, we would love to have you come. MOPS is just around the corner and this play date is a  great way to get introduced to this ministry. Keep watch for upcoming registration announcements!


Children’s Choir Volunteers Needed

Children’s Choir begins Sunday, August 22! We are looking for caring volunteers to help teach kids how to worship and love Jesus through music. Volunteers are needed for ages 4 and up. If interested, contact Christi Lynn.

Senior Adult Fellowship

Senior adults are invited to an afternoon of fun outdoor activities at VGBC on Saturday, August 21, from 2-4:30 pm. Bring your own chair along with food & treats to share. Sign up at the info booth TODAY. For more details, contact Teresa Miles.


Tea with a Missionary

Ladies, join us for Tea with a Missionary, Monday, August 23, from 6:30-8:00 pm. Don’t miss this evening of getting to know more about our missionaries! This unique opportunity will present real people just like you with an extraordinary occupation. Be sure to bring a friend!


Nursery Volunteers Needed

The Nursery is recruiting baby cuddlers! If you would like to serve in this “wee little” ministry, please contact Valerie Kitchenka.


Donation Request

The Costume Dept has a need for 6-8 large plastic containers—like those found at Sam’s or Costco filled with animal crackers or similar items. (Only the container is needed, not the contents.) Please drop them off in the church office for Jay Hill.
