At Vista, we believe that life is better in community.

As we walk through each sermon series, we encourage you to get connected with a group.

Our vista group currently meets on Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 pm. Generally at a house in Cypress Springs. Our time is roughly divided evenly between prayer, Bible study and fellowship over snack and coffee. Right now we are following the sermon notes.  We often will study a book of the Bible using a study guide we find.

Our ladies bible study meets in the Waterford Lakes area on Tuesday mornings at 9:30 to 11am We often discuss the sermon study guide, study a book of the Bible, or topical Christian books. We decide as a group after each series what to study. We have a relational, loving, supportive environment to share real life struggles and pray from one another.

We meet Monday nights from 7­-9 at Dan and Laura Sherwood's home, which is very close to Valencia College East. We are a group of mature believers over 50 who get to the heart of the matter (sermon series) and desire to grow in our walks with the Lord and to have an impact for him.

Our group meets on Wednesday evening from 7:30 – 9:00pm in Cypress Springs at Butch and Tonia Myers’s house.  We have hearts for growing in the word.  We study different topics from the Bible, allowing everyone the opportunity, if they would like, to plan the study and facilitate the group, so they may grow into leaders. We usually spend a little over an hour going over the topic and then we hang out for a little bit getting to know each other.

Our women’s bible study/small group meet on Wednesday nights 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at Vista during the same time as the City Students youth group. This group is for all women who want to come together to fellowship, encourage and support each other in our walk with the Lord. We are starting the new study “Crossing the Waters” by Leslie Leyland Fields tomorrow. As I mentioned before it will be much like the first study with a video teaching segment and then a study guide. There is a book to go along with the study if you want to dig deeper on your own, but you will not need it for what we will be doing. Bring your bible if you have one.

About Crossing the Waters:

Get ready for the wettest, stormiest, wildest trip through the Gospels you’ve ever taken! The Gospels are dramatic and incredibly wet, set in a rich maritime culture on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Yet we’ve missed much of this perspective—until now.

In this 6-part series, Leslie Leyland Fields, author, speaker, and seasoned Alaskan fisherwoman, takes us on a journey through the life of Christ. She leads us across the waters of time and culture out onto the Sea of Galilee, through a rugged season of commercial fishing with her family in Alaska, and through the waters of the New Testament beside the ragtag fishermen disciples. Her own story and her fresh insights will challenge our understanding of Jesus and what it means to “Come, follow me.”
