Dr. Jay Leroux and more!

Hello Vintage Family,

We are in the full swing of summer and things are full of life and vibrancy at Vintage. We have been so blessed to hear from a variety of speakers this summer while Pastor Greg is on Sabbatical. My prayer is that we soak up all that the Holy Spirit has for us in this season.

I wanted to drop you a note to let you know about some upcoming events. You won’t want to miss these!

Dr. Jay and Linda Leroux
As you may have heard me announce, Dr. Jay and Linda Leroux are coming this weekend. Dr. Jay serves Vintage as an overseer and if you’ve had the privilege of hearing him speak in the past you know we are in for an awesome Sunday. Dr. Jay flows in prophetic gifting along with his academic depth of the Word and theology, all of us are sure to be blessed by him. He will be at both the 9 am and 11 am gatherings this Sunday.

Since we have (re)launched Belong in May, we have seen more people get plugged in at Vintage than ever before. This new class format allows you to get insight into our history, church government, and see what makes us tick – all in about one hour. We think that joining a church is not just about membership, it’s about family. Just like family, our desire is for the people of Vintage to share values, contribute, and love one another; all the while honoring the gifts and anointing’s uniquely given by God. If you would like to get involved at Vintage come to our next Belong on August 13 at 11 am. We meet in the Vintage Office in unit 130 off the west side parking lot.

Vintage Picnic
Each year we love getting the entire Vintage family together to worship in the park, celebrate water baptism, and have some fun! This year we are gathering at Edora Park on September 3rd at 10 am. We will have breakfast burritos, yogurt parfaits and the Kona Ice truck ($2 kid size snow cones will be for sale). In addition to that, we have actives for all with bounce houses, classic park games and bubble ball soccer (a personal favorite). The picnic starts out with a time of worship and we are bringing out the dunk tank for water baptisms. If you or anyone you know would like to be baptized, we will have signup sheets at the Connect Tables starting July 30th, or you can email me at ben.westdorp@vintagecitychurch.com

I am excited to let you know that the launch of our new groups system is going very well! I’ve met with serval new group leaders this summer and can’t wait to let you know the variety of new groups we have coming this fall. The new groups session starts September 10th and goes through December 3rd, and I’m sure you can find a group to get connected with. Sign ups will be available online starting August 3rd and I will be sending out more details very soon!

It has been such an honor to be your pastor in this season, so thank you for all you support and love. See you at prayer tonight at 7:00 pm!
