Events & Announcements
Welcome to Vancouver Church. Connecting and building meaningful relationships is a huge part of what we believe in. We would love to hear from you. Please fill out a connections card and place it in the offering bucket. If this is your first visit, please bring your card to the Welcome Center, located in the church foyer, after the worship gathering. We want to warmly welcome you with a small gift!
Communion Today. If you have put your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, we invite you to join us as we remember his sacrificial gift to every believer. The communion elements of bread and juice are gluten free.
Promotion Sunday, June 24. We will be celebrating our Middle School students! We’ll be sending off our 8th grade students, and welcoming our new upcoming 6th grade students!
CLIMB Summer Camp June 28 – July 1. Middle School Youth Collective will be going camping, white water rafting and rock climbing! This experience is designed to take students to a place where they can unplug, overcome obstacles, try new adventures and get face to face with Jesus. More details, including a packing list, will be emailed to registrants prior to the event. Register online at: vancouverchurch.org/churchevents.
KNOWN High School Summer Camp July 11-16. Our hope is that students realize their identity as a follower of Jesus; that they are a child of God, and they are KNOWN by their Creator! Get information and register online at: vancouverchurch.org/churchevents.
Save the Date: Annual Church Meeting and BBQ Sunday, July 29. More info coming soon. We will have a meal after each gathering. This is a great opportunity to be reminded of all God has done at Vancouver Church this past year, learn more of what’s to come, and share a meal with members of our multi-generational tribe.

Got Questions? During the ‘MORE’ series we will be studying 1 Corinthians 12-14 and realize this study may generate questions. We would like to give you an OPPORTUNITY to ask questions. You can text VCQuestions to 97000 and “reply” with your question. Or you can simply WRITE your question on the back of a Communication Card and turn it in to the Welcome Center. We are putting together a Q&A resource and will answer as many of your questions as possible.
Book Recommendations and Sales. We have a limited number of copies of the books we would like to recommend for MORE (the current series on the person and activity of the Holy Spirit) available for purchase today after the morning gatherings in the foyer. We can accept your check, debit/credit card, or cash in the exact amount only.
