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.

What is Beta?

At our core, we believe life and service in Christ is best done together. Our heart is to invite anyone and everyone into our Vessel home, and we do this through some awesome leaders on Beta Team!

Beta exists to cultivate community and connection within Vessel as we pursue God and serve together on Sunday mornings. We believe we can’t pour into the community without being poured into by God and pouring into each other, so each week we meet at 10:30am in E-201 for a devotional. Then we break into groups to serve our Impact Areas – Welcome, Connections, First Impressions, Ushering, Baristas, or Flex. We love the diverse gifts and callings in our community, and want to encourage, equip, and empower those each week. However God has wired you to serve, we’d love to have you on the team!

Do I serve every Sunday?
You can (we would love to see you every Sunday!), but we only ask that you serve 2x / month.

How can I be a part of Beta?
Check it out! Come at 10:30am to E201 – on your first day, you can join us and shadow someone in an Impact Area. Also, contact Andrew Lopez (andrew.lopez@destino.org) – they’d love to get to know you and answer any of your questions.

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 Taylor Fohr at taylorfohr@ucumc.net for small group opportunities, we’d love to get you connected!

WEDNESDAY NIGHTS

ACT 2 – Summer

COLLEGE CONNECT

What’s better than sharing a meal over food? Sharing a meal over FREE food! During the school semesters 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. So keep an eye out on our events page for when the next one is scheduled.

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

We believe that building community is an important part of Vessel, and one way we do that is by sharing a meal together every once in a while at the end of worship. When the early church gathered for worship, they broke bread together, and this is one small way we get to do that. On Community Gathering Sundays, we ask that you bring a dish to share if you’re able. It can be your own personal favorite recipe or something you’ve picked up from the store on your way in! If you want to help with set up and clean up, we could always use your help as well. Contact Jeninne Van Sickle (jeninnevansickle@ucumc.net) for more details.

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 Phil Coleman at phil@boredonsunday.com
