This weekend we are kicking things off! On Friday from 7 pm to 9 pm, and Saturday, from 9 am to 12 noon, we will go through the Healing on the Streets training together. At noon we'll break for lunch, and then at 1 pm to 3pm, we are heading down to the Ithaca Commons to pray for healing!
A news story came out this week reporting that volunteering in America rose dramatically in the past year. Many expected that the recession would cause people to be less likely to give their time to the cause of their choice, but actually the opposite happened. In fact the number of volunteers rose by 1.6 million people in 2009 to 63.4 million!
One of the core values that we have as a church is that we want to see people at the Vineyard forming strong, vibrant relationships. More than simply a quick, "Hey, how's it going?" "Great, you?" type of relationships. But rather relationships where people are real with each other.
