i-61 Missions Connect Movie Night

Please join us for our April i61 Mission Connect meeting on Thursday, April 25th at 6:30pm in the chapel at Vineyard Boise. Dr. Chuck Washington will share his personal experience working with a medical relief team in Burma. We will also have a screening of the documentary “The Black Zone.” This film is about a decade-long journey following workers from a covert and daring medical relief team program as they struggle to provide aid amidst war atrocities inside the jungles of Burma. Note: Due to the film's graphic content and war-torn setting, we do not advise Burmese refugees to view this film. Likewise, it is not appropriate for young children.

Special Workshop: Journey into Intimacy

Christy Hill is the author of the book Journey into Intimacy: A Study of the Song of Solomon, and she'll be here to share her story and the message of the book. Journey into Intimacy isn't a marriage workshop, it's an exploration of our deep relationship with God in Christ that is mirrored in the pages of the ancient "Song of Songs" in our Old Testament.

The heart of Christy's message is to infuse us with a stronger, more passionate relationship with Him that will open us up to a deeper, compassionate love for one another. This workshop will be in Auditorium 1 on Friday, May 3, from 6:30-9pm and Saturday, May 4 from 9am-5:15pm (including a two-hour lunch break on your own). The cost is only $12. Sorry, no childcare will be provided for this event. Register at vineyardboise.org/GO. Contact Phil Bush for more information at phil_bush2003@yahoo.com.

Circle Sunday is Coming

Life with God was never meant to be confined to a cubicle...it’s meant to be lived out in circles: meaningful, relational circles of people pursuing Life together by serving others, by exploring shared interests together, or by processing the written or spoken Word. “God takes the lonely and places them in families,” says the ancient Psalm.

This is our heart for every person that calls Vineyard Boise home - to find meaningful human and divine connection within a healthy circle of life. This is why we have Circle Sunday twice annually - a Sunday when we fill Heritage Hall with opportunities to find connection within new and existing circles in the Vineyard Boise community. Interested in starting a circle or wanting to find new people to join your existing circle?

Click on the button below and fill out the Circle Sunday online form, and we will connect with you. Interested in joining a new or existing circle? Come to Heritage Hall on Circle Sunday following either service and explore the possibilities.

For more information contact Kim Gray at kim.gray@vineyardboise.org.
