As part of the Hard Conversations series, there's a Fireside Chat this Friday night at 7pm in the Cafe. We'll get to practice  what we've learned over the past few weeks and have meaningful discussions about how to love one another, as Christ commands. While the adults and youth are at the Fireside Chat, our K-5th graders will enjoy a pajama party and movie night in the elementary department. Childcare is also available for the little ones. It should be a great evening! Make sure you have registered your children!
 
Sunday the Hard Conversations series continues with this affirmation: We choose to accept that we live in the already and not yet.

If you were planning on going to the Vineyard 101 class this Sunday afternoon, we hope you have gotten the word that this has been rescheduled for Sunday, April 22nd.  

Have a great weekend, and we hope to see you Friday night and Sunday!
