At Vista, we believe that life is better in community.

As we walk through each sermon series, we encourage you to get connected with a group.

Our vista group currently meets on Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 pm. Generally at a house in Cypress Springs. Our time is roughly divided evenly between prayer, Bible study and fellowship over snack and coffee. Right now we are following the sermon notes.  We often will study a book of the Bible using a study guide we find.

Our ladies bible study meets in the Waterford Lakes area on Tuesday mornings at 9:30 to 11am We often discuss the sermon study guide, study a book of the Bible, or topical Christian books. We decide as a group after each series what to study. We have a relational, loving, supportive environment to share real life struggles and pray from one another.

June 26th – 7:00 pm-8:30 pm – Meeting at Vista

The plan for this evening is primarily just to meet and fellowship and get a chance to encourage each other to focus on God.

“Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” ~Hebrews 10:24-25 New Living Translation (NLT)

As we talked about at our last meeting we will take some time to share or hear some personal “godwinks” or God stories as inspired by the book “When God winks at you” by Squire Rushnell.

(God wink (plural God winks) An event or personal experience, often identified as coincidence, so astonishing that it is seen as a sign of divine intervention, especially when perceived as the answer to a prayer.)

It is my hope and prayer that we will be encouraged by each other’s stories as they will remind us that God cares for us deeply and in a personal way. Come ready to share or hear some stories about how God is touching our lives and also bring your prayer requests so we may lift each other up to the Lord in prayer.

July 31 – 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm – Meeting at Vista

Again the plan for this evening is primarily just to meet and fellowship and to get a chance to encourage each other to focus on God.

“Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.” ~ Colossians 3:16 New Living Translation (NLT)

We will take some time to talk and pray about a few potential studies for the fall and it is my hope and prayer that you will all come ready to share your counsel and wisdom for our upcoming women’s study group for the fall.

Our group meets on Wednesday evening from 7:30 – 9:00pm in Cypress Springs at Butch and Tonia Myers’s house.  We have hearts for growing in the word.  We study different topics from the Bible, allowing everyone the opportunity, if they would like, to plan the study and facilitate the group, so they may grow into leaders. We usually spend a little over an hour going over the topic and then we hang out for a little bit getting to know each other.
