Sermon Notes

Heaven & Nature Sing: Repeat the Sounding Joy
by Jeff Faust

Joy to the world, the savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ; 
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy, 
Repeat, Repeat, the sounding joy.

Look for unexpected joy.

Share your joy publicly.

What are you repeating these days?

Share your joy privately.

Joy can be something you’re full of right now or it can be something that seems like it’s far off in the distance and it’s nothing but a hope for the future. Either way—I believe God has something for you this Christmas season.

Next Steps

Whether you're new to the Vineyard or you've been around for years, there's a next step for you!

Small Groups

"Circles are better than rows."
Sundays at VOTR are great! But there's something more... something you can't get sitting in rows facing a stage. You need to sit in a circle with a few folks who can look in the eye and share life. Small groups are the perfect place to build friendships, discover your spiritual gifts, and grow in your relationship with Jesus. 

Fall small groups are already underway, but it's not too late to jump in. There are several groups that you can join today!


Giving online is simple and secure. You can give a single gift or schedule ongoing giving.
