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.

Our women’s bible study/small group meet on Wednesday nights starting back up on August 28, 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at Vista during the same time as the youth group. This is a multi-generational/multi-cultural group of women who want to come together to fellowship, encourage and support each other in our walk with the Lord. Our Theme for this fall is “Authentic Friendship and Community”.The idea of authentic friendships start with seeking God - our TRUE friend - and in so doing we will be growing closer in our relationships with each other as well. We are starting off with a 6-week study called “Befriend – create belonging in an age of judgement, isolation, and fear”. Yes, it’s true: Real friendship is costly. Love does make us vulnerable. But without risk, our lives will remain impoverished. Learn what it means to be a good friend in an age of judgment, isolation, and fear. It is our goal to have child care provided so moms can join our group .

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 at 6:30pm 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.
