"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10

At Vista Church, the love of Jesus compels us to love and serve the community around us in meaningful and tangible ways.

The children and families in your neighborhood need to hear the good news of the Gospel and tangibly experience the love of God. We help families and group from our church make their front yards a gathering place for neighborhood kids to hear and experience the Gospel through the crazy games, engaging lessons, meaningful crafts, small groups, and snacks that make up Neighborhood Summer Clubs! 

Neighborhood Summer Clubs are not only valuable but they are doable. We provide the games, craft supplies, lesson materials, and an easy-to-follow master plan. You pray, invite some of your friends to help, invite your neighborhood kids and families to come, and have a great time!

If you would like to host a Neighborhood Summer Club in your neighborhood, email andrew@vistachurch.com.

God calls us to love others with our actions and deeds, not just our words. This happens in our church community all the time, but, twice a year, we come together as a church to serve our schools, community organizations, neighbors, and families in need. We clean, paint, organize, mow, trim, and build in the name of Jesus to be a blessing to others.

If you need help or know somebody we could serve, contact andrew@vistachurch.com.


FOOD PANTRY

Jesus knew what it was like to be in need. Are you in need of food? If you are unemployed or underemployed and in need, our Food Pantry provides groceries as an expression of Jesus Christ’s love for you. The Food Pantry is open on Tuesdays from 2:30-3:00 pm at Vista Community Church. For more information, call 407-306-8000.

If you would like to be a part of this team, please contact debbie@vistachurch.com.


PUBLIC SCHOOL PARTNERSHIPs

We believe that families and children matter because Jesus believes that families and children matter. Throughout the school year, we are looking for ways to bless our neighboring schools: Hidden Oaks Elementary, Pinar Elementary, Liberty Middle, Odyssey Middle, Colonial High, and Lake Nona High. We've given backpacks at the beginning of the year, cleaned up school property, and provided mentors & student leadership opportunities through organizations like Kids Hope USA, Cru, and First Priority.

If you have an idea of how we can bless one of our schools, please contact andrew@vistachurch.com.


Jobs Partnership

We believe that we are more like Jesus when we love and serve those who are in need. We support and team up with Jobs Partnership to help transform the lives of the chronically underemployed by developing the skills they need to get ahead. The Jobs Partnership LifeWorks class is a 12-week course, based on biblical principles, that provides job training, personal coaching, and new career opportunities for the underemployed.

If you would like to apply for the LifeWorks class, visit www.JobsPartnershipFL.org or call  407-641-0755 x101.

If you're interested in volunteering at a LifeWorks class, check out these volunteer opportunities  and sign up at www.JobsPartnershipFL.org.


COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

We see our facility as a gift from God. We want to use it in whatever way we can to help build our community and make it a better place. God has led us to use our building as a voting site for two local precincts. We also host a variety of homeowner's association meetings, school concerts, and periodic health fairs.   


INTERNATIONAL FOCUS

Enrich your lives and those of an UCF International student by serving with Bridges as an American Friendship Partner to one of the 120 students who have asked to have a relationship with an American individual or family.
