Wow! Every single day I get more and more excited about all the ways that God is working here at Vaughn Forest Church! Every week we are seeing new faces and families join us. God is using you, the church, to carry out the mission and vision of reaching those who are far from Him with the good news that Jesus loves them and died for them. Thank you for being willing to live sent from God and carry the gospel with you throughout your daily life!
Remember, with all this growth going on we are asking Vaughn Forest members and families to do two things for us:
- Please park in the East Parking Lot (the one to the left of the property when you turn in from Vaughn Road) or in the back parking lot behind the church to help make more room for guests and new families that might have preschoolers. These folks are our guests and we want to be the best hosts we can be, and that starts in the parking lot.
- Please move where you sit in the worship service to the East side of the auditorium (the one opposite the baptistry). We are noticing the west-side is getting really full and we want to slide over to make more room for all of our guests.
So many of you have already helped us with this…thank you so much!
Also, if you are willing to help us by serving with our Kids Ministry once every two months or so at 10:30 AM please email our Kids Staff Beth or David and let them know. We appreciate you being willing to help take care of our kiddos!
This Sunday is a baptism weekend here in the Forest! If you are interested in being baptized, or maybe you just want more information on what baptism is all about, please contact Norm Bell by clicking here. I cannot wait to celebrate baptism with you this Sunday at 10:30 AM!
Also, I want to invite all of our ladies to attend our Women’s Ministry Conference featuring Lysa TerKeurst on September 9 and 10 here at VFC. Lysa is a nationally known speaker and author and I know you will enjoy hearing her speak. I am also excited that our very own VFC Worship Team will be leading us in worship through music. To purchase tickets, stop by the table on the Pathway on the weekend or get them online by clicking here.
Finally, if you are interested in becoming a member of Vaughn Forest Church or maybe you just want to get plugged into the ministries of Vaughn Forest, then I invite you to join us for our Next Steps Class on Sunday, September 11, at 9:00 AM in the Next Steps Room. I encourage everyone who hasn’t been through this process to check it out…you will love it!
As always, it is a joy to be your pastor. Keep living sent!
