Outreach & Events
Hope Fest 2016
October 21-23, 2016
This is an annual event. This year, 2016, Vision Church purposely did not hold services this weekend in an effort to free everyone up to be able to participate in helping to serve God by taking care of under resourced and vulnerable people in our community. We hope to make this event a yearly standard for us here at Vision Church.
Casa de Elizabeth Orphanage
located in Imuris, Mexico
This is an orphanage that we have partnered with just about 2-3 hours south of us in Mexico. They are in need of food, repairs and visitors for the kids. If you are interested in learning more about CDE and how you can help contact Shane LaLama by emailing him at email@example.com
We have a special connection to Ethiopia due to the Roeder family and their daughter who they adopted from there. We had a mission team travel over to build some houses with the money we raised with Project Overwhelmed. That money also built churches in predominately Muslim areas where we are seeing many people giving their lives to Christ. A new team is forming for the Ethiopia Mission Trip of 2017. If you would like more information on how you can help to sponsor a child there, be involved or even join the team and travel email the Roeder family at firstname.lastname@example.org
