June 2018

Hello all, I pray your day is going well! We wanted to give you a quick update as to what we are doing this month with Vineyard Youth.

Same place, different time! Throughout the summer we will continue to meet at VCF but will be meeting at 6:30 instead of 7! We will see you then!

Last Wednesday (6/6) we started a new series titled, Super Serve Summer. We discussed how God calls us all to be servants in 1 Peter 4:10. We then tackled the passage in Mark 10:42-44 Where Jesus declares "whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 44and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all." Jesus came and served others, those he served saw the love of God by the way Jesus served them. We asked ourselves, are others seeing the love of God in us by the way we serve others?

This Wednesday (6/13) we will start the second half of Super Serve Summer Series. Since we have discussed that it is important to serve, Jesus himself came to serve and declares that we too must serve, how do we do so? What are some certain ways we can serve one another? We will give some Biblical examples as to how we can serve and love one another!

The Bible declares that we are to not only be a hearer, but a doer. (James 1:22) SO, next Wednesday  (6/20) we will be taking what we learned and springing into action. We are going to meet per usual at VCF but instead of sitting in on a message, we are going to go out and serve the city of Bellefontaine. We will have street clean up teams, prayer teams, blessing teams and witnessing teams. We will leave the church at 6:30 and will be back by 7:30. We will recap until 8:00 and dismiss for the night. It is time to be the hands and feet of Jesus!

Wednesday June 27th Vineyard Youth will be having their hangout Wednesday here at VCF. We will have a Slip-N-Slide going followed by mud-volleyball. Students are going to get MESSY. We advise in bringing a towel and a change of clothes. There will be a short devotion prior during dinner (Pizza). Dinner starts at 6, Slip-N-Slide from 6:30-7:15, Mud-Volleyball from 7:15-8. Bring your friends, this is going to be AWESOME!

Lastly, Wednesday July 4th we will not be having youth group. Enjoy the night celebrating your independence with your fellow patriots!

May 2018

Hello all, I pray your day is going well. We wanted to give you all a quick update as to what we are doing this month with Vineyard Youth!

Yesterday (5/9) we started a new series titled Gifted, a series on the gifts of the spirit. We discussed how God has not only made us, but has known us and set us apart for a specific purpose since before we were even born just as He did with Jeremiah (Jeremiah 1:5). We are all made differently (1 Corinthians 12:12-27) and will  be equipped with different gifts (Romans 12:6-8). We took a spiritual gift test to see what our spiritual gifts are. In the upcoming 2 weeks we will break down each gift, along with someone in scripture who had that gift, your strengths, your challenges and how you can be serving the church. We are beyond excited about this series! Come join us Wednesdays at 7!

Upcoming Events:

Wednesday May 16th we are having a Seniors & Sundaes event. Pastor Tyler is taking the seniors out to Dairy Queen for Free Ice Cream immediately after youth group (8:30-9:30). How do you qualify? Well, if you are a senior and love ice cream, you qualify! Come join us!

Wednesday May 23rd we are having our Initiation event. Vineyard Youth will be hosting our new 6th grade students at Youth Group (7p-8:30p)  to get a sample as to what they are going to be getting themselves into starting this June. Parents are also welcomed to come as we will be bringing their students before our group and praying over them. Welcome to the Family!

Wednesday May 30th our Youth will be meeting at Calvary Fields (1688 US-68, Bellefontaine, OH 43311) for our end of year bash with Unite from 6pm-9pm. Unite is a group of Youth Groups that get together quarterly for one giant youth group service. Bring clothes you don't mind getting messy and maybe even a change of clothes and a towel. There will be live music, a slip-n-slide, mud volleyball, a bonfire with Hotdogs and S'mores. The event will cost $2. This will be a blast, you don't wanna miss this!

Sunday June 3rd we are having our Senior Sunday event. We will be having a Senior appreciation breakfast in the old Junior/Senior High Classroom (Room 110 & Room 111) at 8am. We will be serving Pancakes and Sausage. All Seniors who attend VCF are invited as well as their family. If you are attending, feel free to provide your favorite side dish. additionally, we will be recognizing our seniors before the congregation at both services, so this is the Sunday you don't wanna skip!
