Community

GET INVOLVED

We’re excited that you’re interested with helping out at Vessel! Right now, we have a couple of ways for you to do just that.

HOSPITALITY TEAM

Can you smile and say, “Welcome to Vessel!”? Perfect. That’s a great start. Here at Vessel, we believe that the first impression moments are some of the most important times for people to experience the community at Vessel. Whether someone is coming for the first time or they’re a regular, we want them to feel welcomed in the community.

First Thessalonians 4:18 says “Therefore comfort one another with these words.” What words? “Good morning!” “Welcome!” “I’m glad you’re here!” Any words that can create a community that shares the love of God. Join us in sharing comforting words on Sunday mornings as people enter the house of our Father.

USHERING

During service, we need ushers to help people find seats if needed, collect the offering and help with any small last minute changes before service starts. Ushering is a very valued and important part of the hospitality team geared toward helping the service run smoothly.

Our hospitality team is headed by Jeninne VanSickle, who works hard to make the first impression very memorable and pleasurable, however, she can’t do it by herself – she needs wonderful volunteers just like you! And the great thing about working with Jeninne? She will take great care of you! She can help set up a schedule that works for you to volunteer. Whether you serve weekly, bi weekly, or monthly…we have a place for you!

The first step to get involved on our Hospitality Team is to contact Jeninne VanSickle at JeninneVanSickle@ucumc.net. From there, the process will be even easier. See you Sunday at 11:40!

SMALL GROUPS

Do you like what you hear on Sundays at Vessel and want to talk about it more? Do you want to get connected in Vessel outside of the regular Sunday service? Do you want to have a night mid-week to regroup with community? If you answered yes to any of these questions, join a small group! Email Jen Welch at jenwelch@vesselorlando.net for small group opportunities, we’d love to get you connected!

COLLEGE CONNECT

What’s better than sharing a meal over food? Sharing a meal over FREE food! Once a month Vessel hosts College Connect for college students around the Orlando area. This is a great opportunity to get to know other college students who attend Vessel over some FREE food and great community.

When is the next College Connect?

COMMUNITY GATHERING

“They devoted themselves to the apostles teachings, life together, shared meals and to prayer.” Acts 2:42

Once a month we meet in community outside the regular Sunday service to learn, grow, pray and eat together. We live in community in two different ways: bringing food to eat and bringing food to donate to a local food pantry. If you are an amazing baker or cook, this is your chance to prove it! Bring food to share with the community; but if you can’t make it—no worries, you can pick it up from the store. Also, bring in some non-perishables to donate to a local food pantry in need.

When is the next Community Gathering?

YOUTH

Our student ministry, EPIC, is devoted to the growth of the next generation of Christ-followers. EPIC Youth offers many different opportunities for youth to meet and connect with each other throughout the week. Aside from weekly meetings, there are many retreat opportunities available.

If you are interested in volunteering and investing in our youth, contact Patti Thue at patti@boredonsunday.com
