Hi Everybody!

Welcome to Friday and our weekly email update.

1st thing – don’t forget about our night of worship with CJ Orndorff.  It’s tonight at 7pm!

Our good friend CJ Orndorff is putting on a night of worship here at Grace on Friday night at 7pm.  CJ is an awesome musician AND he overflows with love for Jesus.   This is going to be a great way to start our weekend, and I hope you’ll be able to join us.  Our evening starts at 7pm.

Secondly, I wanted to let you know that we have very special treat on Sunday morning.  Jenny and Josue Hernandez, the leaders of the Vineyard Honduras missions partnership are in town and will be speaking in our morning service.

Josue and Jenny met in Honduras. Josue is from Honduras and his wife, Jenny was a missionary there for 7 years. They are leaders at the Vineyard Church North Phoenix in Arizona. They have been serving in Honduras as a part of the Vineyard Honduras Partnership for several years and leading the partnership since July 2016. They love traveling to Honduras and spending time with the people. They are actively leading the Honduras Partnership by building up indigenous leaders, supporting church plants, and reaching the people of this beautiful nation.  Steve and Lisa Rogers will be traveling to Honduras with them this coming Summer, so we are especially excited for this opportunity for them to connect with our entire congregation this Sunday.

We’ll also broadcast the service on zoom and facebook live.  Here’s the info for catching us online at 9:30 am this Sunday:

2021 Marriage Getaway September 24-26

I also want to make sure the married folks know that the annual marriage retreat is going to happen this year again, September 24-26 at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa.   The Marriage Getaway has been a highlight of the year to many of us for the last decade.  This year’s speakers are Bill and Pam Farrel.  All the info and registration is at this link.  Check out this promotional video:

These Marriage Getaways are extremely popular and could sell out very quickly, so register as soon as you can. Kim and I are registered, and we hope many more of you will be able to join us!  Please note – thanks to some generous donations, 10 Military couples can now go on a full scholarship!  If you are a military couple, let us know and we’ll tell you how to take advantage of this incredible gift!

And with that, I’ll sign off.  Have a wonderful weekend. See you Sunday morning at 9:30.

Blessings and love to each of you,

Tithes and Offerings Online

Thank you for your generosity and faithfulness! We could not do what we do without you. We believe God has chosen to meet the material needs of His church through the tithes and offerings of His people. (Tithe means literally 1/10 or 10% of our income). We encourage everybody to be committed to a church family, and if Grace Vineyard is where you are committed, we’ve provided this online tool for you; click on the “donate” button below to get started. (Note: if you’re giving an offering for the building fund or the benevolence fund in addition to your tithe, please mention that in the notes section after you land on our paypal page). THANKS for taking ownership in the life and ministry of Grace Vineyard – it takes all of us!
