Not Forgotten, But Forgiven - Erica Baker

It's Me, It's Me, It's Me! - Sherri Harder
Yesterday I was a “fill-in” volunteer. Someone was sick and we needed someone to help the teacher for our Kingdom Kids. I was happy to jump into such an important job. First, I joined our team upstairs as we prayed before the service and then spent a couple of minutes of silence to listen for what we think Jesus may want to do in folks’ lives that morning.
Free Clinics in Reynoldsburg: David DiYanni
We have been running free clinics at our church for almost five years now. I just want to say God is so totally blessing them, it is incredible! We started with a free medical clinic, then added free vision, legal, and tax preparation. Then we really got going and added free computer repair, free bicycle repairs, and two years ago we added free dog obedience. This year we added free financial advice and investing.
Miracle in Indiana: Tim Robertson
Back on Friday, September 28th, 2012 at 10:10 AM, I was between job assignments and was parked in the lot of the Marsh Grocery Store on State Road 135 near the city of Greenwood, Indiana. While I was parked, a man named Stan saw our Johnson County Senior Services van. He walked up and collapsed against the outside of the driver side window like something out of a zombie apocalypse.
Doing the Stuff of the Kingdom: AMADEO Vineyard Church
Over the past years we have grown a group of people who are serving our community under the name Vineyard Community Center of Arizona. These are just a few of the beautiful things God is doing in our community as people "do the stuff" of the kingdom, loving and serving one another in practical ways.

High Praise For Vineyard Music: Phil P.
As soon as the music started, the waves of God's love started flowing deep in my heart. I went up to the worship leader after the service was over and told him how profoundly the music had touched my heart. He said 75 percent of what they played was from a series called "Touching the Father's Heart" from Vineyard Music.
Jesus Is For Me: Le Que Heidkamp
My story is interesting and random, but a lot of it is not intelligible unless you start from the beginning. As my wonderful husband Jeff has said, I love to greet people who I don’t know, and those who might feel like they're new and don't know if they belong. That's very much a part of my story.
Love 146: Dan Kopp
Over the summer I began reading Built to Last by Jim Collins. In the book, Collins challenges companies and nonprofit organizations to have BHAGs: Big Hairy Audacious Goals that your organization can rally around. At the same time I was reading about BHAGs and praying about what one would look like at our church, I received an email from Jessica Gortat, leader of our church’s anti-human-trafficking task force. She said the task force was brainstorming about fundraising ideas for Love146.
Unexpected Vineyard Resources: Cheryl Warren
Working in a place that is the only place folks can get some of the most valuable kingdom resources in the world carries with it a sort of sacred trust. People call us in various states of life change. They immediately "trust" us with details which are typically not shared with a businessperson taking your order over the phone. Sometimes it pays not to be Amazon.
God’s Healing Happens Today: Rachael Sutliff
