Women’s Christmas Event
Friday, December 7th, 2018
Ladies of Vision, our annual Christmas Event is coming up December 7th at 7:00pm, and you don’t want to miss it. We will have a guest speaker (Mercedes Cotchery), a catered meal and lots of fun and fellowship – all for just $10/person. This event is for ladies 18 and up, and due to space limitations,we will not be able to offer childcare. Register online now and get your ticket because this event will very likely sell out. Once the 150 spaces are filled, we will begin a waiting list. If you have any questions, please contact Cortney Postell.
Watoto childrens choir
December 21-22, 2018
We are so excited to welcome back the Watoto Children's Choir from Uganda this Christmas season. Approximately 30 people will be part of their traveling group, including the children in the choir and their caregivers (affectionately referred to as aunts/uncles). The job of the host church when holding these concerts includes feeding the team dinner the night of the concert, hosting 3-4 people in host homes overnight and feeding them breakfast the day after the concert before sending them on to their next stop.
We need about 10 host homes for this special event, and due to the popularity of this group (we hosted them two years ago), we are taking applications for those interested in hosting. Sign up here

Come and learn more about Vision Church at Inside Vision! At Vision, we believe God calls people to be owners rather than members. This means that rather than gaining rights, we take on responsibilities. Our Lead Pastor, Matt Vanderbilt, Associate Pastor Mitchell Lewis, and one of our elders, Jon Evans, leads this class for anyone wanting to learn about Vision for the first time, anyone ready to become an owner — or anywhere in between.
Sunday, December 9th 2018
We have had nearly 100 people baptized at Vision Church and this could be your time! Baptism is an outward symbol of an inward work God is doing in your life. If you want more info about being baptized on December 9th, come to one of the baptism classes on November 25th or December 2nd (after either service time on those days). If you have any questions before then, let us know.
