COMMUNITY GROUPS

Do you want to grow deeper in relationship with Jesus while you connect with other Christians?

 


If so, joining a Community Group is perfect for you! 

Our small groups meet at various times throughout the month to study God’s word and encourage each other to live it out loud. Because the groups are loosely divided by age, participants have the opportunity to build authentic relationships and find care and support. Each group is open to singles and couples, with or without children.

Occasionally people will find that a particular group just "works" for them even though they aren't in the general age range. We invite you to try a few groups and find the one that's works for you.

Family Promise Host Night

Saturday, October 7
VPC Campus

Finally, our community hosts a dinner and provides fellowship for the Family Promise families we are blessed to have on campus. These families are currently in a tough spot with no living arrangements and little financial resources. Family Promise organizes a network of churches that each provide a week of housing, food and fellowship to families who find themselves in these tough situations. Our community hosts a dinner and fellowship time the last night of the week these families spend on our church campus. Our next night of food and fellowship for Family Promise families is Saturday, October 7.

Hike-West Fork Trail in Oak Creek

October, Date TBA (based on anticipated height of leaf color)
Time TBD, Carpool

No time has been set, yet, but we will carpool and leave pretty early since it is a ways away. This is a beautiful trail that is very modest in difficulty. The trail is about 3.5 miles each way, but there is no requirement that the trail be fully trod – it is very easy to stop earlier and enjoy the surroundings. We might split into two groups so that those who want to do the entire trail can, and those who want to take a more leisurely approach can do so as well. Invite friends and family as it is one of the of the most pleasant places in the state in which to spend time. We’ll have more info and a sign-up sheet on Sunday or email Ed Glady with questions.
