It's beginning to look a lot like SUMMER!!
July 2019 Update!
The weather is hotting up and the beaches are getting busy so it’s nearly time for a Summer Break! This month we have our first Weekend Away, a Kids Summer Party and then to finish the month a visiting speaker from Cardiff Vineyard.
If you have missed any of the talks recently you can now get them on Apple Podcasts and through our website - Kingdom of God.
It has been really exciting to see God moving in our meetings and hearing the stories of God transforming lives. We love to celebrate small leaps of faith like praying for someone for the first time or building up courage to share our faith. It has also been great to see the community support one another when members have been going through hard times. Small Groups are such a vital part of the church and we thank God for the leaders we have.
Throughout July we will continue to press in during our prayer meetings seeking God’s will for us as a community. You can join us at our Pray Meetings, every Tuesday Morning in term time in Perranwell and Falmouth - message for details.
If you have recently made Falmouth Vineyard your home we would love to invite you to get involved in the life of the church. We don’t have formal church membership - instead we invite our church family to invest themselves in the life of the church in 4 ways:
Invest in Community
We would love you to join a small group where you can get to know people and people can get to know you. The life following Jesus is meant to be done as part of community and we grow and learn together and because of each other. Pastoral Care and disciplship happens in small groups and it’s also where we train, equip and identify future leaders. Sign Up for a small group below:
Invest in a Team
An other way to invest in the life of the church is to get involved in the running of our Sunday Services, mid-week events, kids and youth ministries. We believe everyone has gifts, talents and skills that God wants to use to equip the church to fulfil is mission in extending the Kingdom of God. A great way to start getting involved is complete the Connect Form - this allows us to identify where you can get involved initially. We hope that everyone can serve on a team once a month.
Part of discipleship is allowing God to be Lord of our finances. In the Old Testament the bible teaches about the concept of tithing - giving the Lord the first 10% of our financial income. We believe this offering should be used to finance the day-to-day running of the church - the venue, staffing and ministry costs. We are a church that is committed to financial accountability and openess so you can request a financial report at anytime and we will account for every penny that has been given. Through ChurchSuite you can also monitor your giving and manage any gift aid declarations. For more information on how to give - check out falmouthvineyard.rg/give
Invest by Inviting
One of our key values as a church is to be extravagently welcoming to everyone that our community comes into contact with. We want to create safe spaces where people can explore who Jesus is and why He is so important. So we want to be a community that is always organising events where we can invite friends along. Part of investing in the community is invitation. Have a think about who God is laying on your heart to invite along to a Sunday Gathering or one of our events.
Coming Up in the next Month or so…
