The year 2020 has certainly been a different year for VIS as we have had to think creatively about how to do relational ministry when we can no longer have church volunteers meet with people in their homes or meet face to face. Shortly after shelter in place went into effect. VIS began a “Calls and Cards” ministry and over 50 VIS friends began receiving a call one time per week and receiving cards from church volunteers to offer friendship support, encouragement, scriptures, spiritual support, and prayer. The feedback from this has been tremendous. VIS friends and volunteers and developed friendships and they hope at some time they actually get to meet one another in person.

VIS volunteers also had to be creative in ways that they are still connecting with their VIS friend.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE! -share this!

This week our denomination is holding virtual Council of Delegates meetings! Today they had a 6 hour Global Missions Ministry Committee meeting and then will pick things up with full meetings on Weds- Friday.

Council of Delegate meetings may not sound like the most exciting, but there is a lot going on in our denomination with looking at the US/Canadian relationship, the upcoming turnover of denomination leadership, the cancellation of Synod 2021, and all the ministry opportunities and challenges that we face - especially in the light of Covid.

PLEASE BE IN PRAYER FOR OUR CLASSIS DELEGATE - David Struyk - AND FOR THESE MEETINGS!

If all they are is "business" meetings, they will be spinning their wheels. Let's pray that a special anointing of His Spirit is given to all delegates so that they may make wise decisions that help build up His Church and preserve the unity of His Church!

We ask that you join us in this prayer.
