Hello Grace Vineyard and Friends,
I hope you’re doing well. As I write this “Weekly Update” on Thursday afternoon, Kim and I are getting ready to drive to the Inland Vineyard in Corona for the Southern California Vineyard Regional Conference. We’re excited to spend time with other Vineyard folks from all over Southern California for worship, powerful ministry times, and envisioning inspiration from many of our national and regional leaders. I’m guessing if you’re reading this, you’re probably not at the conference in person, but the good news is they are making it available via streaming, and you should be able to get to that webpage by clicking here: https://www.inlandvineyard.org/regional-conference-home-page. I’d love to have you join us online and experience everything Kim and I are experiencing in person. (Usually livestream events stay archived during the conference, so I think you can watch whenever it’s convenient for you if you can’t make it to the sessions when they’re live.)
Bubba Justice This Coming Sunday
Bubba Justice, the Missions Coordinator for the Vineyard USA is in town for the regional conference, and he offered to come down to join us on Sunday after the conference. Bubba Justice, besides having one of the coolest names I’ve ever heard, has been one of our favorite guest speakers in the last few years, and we’re delighted to have him with us again. Don’t miss it! For your convenenience, if you’ll be joining us online, here’s the zoom info you’ll need: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/153112432?pwd=WlJjbWZNeHo0NXBKM0VvbDkrYXV2QT09, Meeting ID: 153 112 432, Password: 684814.
Fellowship Lunch on July 3rd
I want to remind you about the Fellowship Lunch after church the Sunday after this coming Sunday on July 3rd. Our last one was so much fun, so I hope you’ll all join us again as we build rich community around a shared meal. Susan Franke will be in the lobby this Sunday to help us get signed up for what we’ll be bringing.
Mercy Ministry – Love on the Streets
Today I thought I’d highlight a really amazing ministry that happens around Oceanside. Michael Aplikowsky, (760)473-9177, email@example.com, helps coordinate people bringing some food, a friendly smile, and an offer to pray for people we encounter on the streets of North County typically on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday at 11:30am (times may vary). If you’re available any of these days, I’d encourage you contact Michael and join the team. It’s always a rich blessing!
I’d also like to highlight our Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday morning zoom prayer meetings from 7:00-8:00am. I come as often as I can, and they always lift me up.
Here’s the zoom info for the prayer meeting: Meeting ID: 812 2225 0027 Password: 006314. We read a chapter of the Bible together, talk about what’s on our hearts to pray for, and then pray. It’s really simple, relational, and powerful. One of the fun things is that we often have international friends join us from around the world.
I Gotta run now so we can drive up to the conference. God Bless you each richly, and I’ll see you on Sunday morning.
