Join Us for Worship on Sunday
Join us for worship in person or online on Sunday, November 21, as Lay Leader Stephen Greenwade provides the message, What Do You Say?
Sunday, November 21 | What Do You Say?
We have a propensity to take the blessings from God we receive for granted and not show an appropriate measure of gratitude. We need to work on recognizing the blessings in life and be better at expressing to God, and one another, how much they are appreciated.
Traditional Worship | 8:30 a.m. | Sanctuary
The recording of each service is available after the livestream.
What to Expect | The CDC and Bishop McKee encourage the use of face masks during worship for those fully vaccinated. Those who are not vaccinated need to wear a mask during worship. Please sit where you’d like in the sanctuary, but consider giving other people space if you are seated after them. Please refer to the What to Expect Guide for more details.
Child Care | Child care is available at 9:45 a.m. for Sunday School and during 11 a.m. worship. Please email email@example.com by noon Saturday if you need childcare on Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. Children’s Church and Family Experience will not be held this Sunday. Children are encouraged to attend worship with their families. Activity bags will be available.
Register Your Attendance | Please register your attendance so we know you joined us for worship.
Miss a Message? | The weekly messages are available on the church website if you miss one or want to watch it again.
Please register your attendance and let us know that you joined us for worship.
Child, Senior Angels Available for Adoption; Return Gifts to Church by November 28
The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program is in full swing, with the deadline to fulfill the Christmas need/wish of a child or senior adult quickly approaching.
Adoptions are made by online selection. Pick a child or senior angel, shop for him or her, and return the unwrapped gifts to the church by Sunday, November 28.
Please note that the church office does not have access this year to which angels our church members have adopted. If the angel gifts are not returned by Sunday, November 28, it will be the responsibility of the adopter to deliver the gifts to The Salvation Army, 9216 Harry Hines Blvd. in Dallas.
- Use the button below to find an angel.
- After selecting an angel, complete your contact information. Additional details about your angel will be listed once the angel is adopted.
- Place a label on each unwrapped gift with the name and number of your angel.
- Place labeled gifts in a trash bag. Trash bags and labels are available at the church.
- Bring gifts in the trash bag to the church no later than Sunday, November 28. After November 28, it will be the responsibility of the adopter to deliver the gifts to The Salvation Army in Dallas.
Gifts are to be returned to the church no later than Sunday, November 28.
New Advent Study Begins Sunday
Advent is right around the corner and the Vista Forum class invites anyone interested to join them for a new Advent study on Sunday mornings beginning November 21.
The Heart That Grew Three Sizes
Based on the new book by Matt Rawle
Vista Forum Class
Sundays Beginning November 21 | 9:45-10:45 a.m. | Room 119
We don’t know why the Grinch hated Christmas. We just know he did. In this new Advent study, Matt Rawle explores the faith themes in the Christmas classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, including how did the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes come Christmas morning? How did Christmas save the Grinch? Could it be that the very thing we think we hate is the one thing that changes our lives? This Advent and Christmas season, look at a familiar classic through the lens of faith and see how Christ speaks to us through our culture.
Salvation Army Coat Drive Wraps Up Sunday
Salvation Army Bell Ringing on December 4
Vista Ridge UMC will support The Salvation Army Lewisville on Saturday, December 4, by bell ringing for its Red Kettle campaign. There will be two locations to serve. Volunteer times are for 1 1/2 hours, but you can sign up for more than one slot. This is a great opportunity to join with a friend or for the entire family to get involved.
- Walmart (FM 3040) | 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
- Market Street (Coppell) | 1-8 p.m.
All funds collected stay local to support Salvation Army programs in our community. By helping raise funds through a Red Kettle, you’re a neighbor helping your neighbors.
