God’s Grace

God’s Grace

God’s Grace!

“I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus.” – I Cor 1:4

I am so thankful for God’s grace to our Vinia family of churches. God’s blessings are so abundant to each of us.

As we reflect this week, with the same heart as our Uncommon Good church family in Poway, California – we want you to know that we thank God for you! You are lovedyou are valued, and you belong.

I want to take a moment to say THANK YOU for your leadership and faithful service to God this year. It has been a challenging year and the fruit that God is producing in you and through you is evident.

I want to also thank God for our Vinia staff team – Mike, Phil, Doug, Rachael, Toby, Zack, Rick (and Glenn)!! We are blessed by your heart for God, your selflessness, and your leadership.

And I want to add my thanks for our Mission Advancement Team (MAT) – Paul Madson, Doug Posey, Dave Schmutte, Sandi Balli, Edwin Recinos, Larry Wolf, Doug Colby, Amy Jackson, Dave Stegman, Phil Graf, Louis DeLuca, and Charles Clemons.

I love that the apostle Paul expressed to Timothy, “I thank God…as I constantly remember you in my prayers” – and to Philemon, “I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers.” I cannot thank God enough for the people in my life – my family, my friends, my neighbors, my colleagues, my disciples, and you!
