One of the most difficult things in life is to forgive.  And yet it also the most freeing. 

Please join us this Sunday as we hear from Gary Heese about the topic of Forgiveness.

Gary will be sharing from this challenging passage–Ephesians 4:31-32, which says:

Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Join us at 5 PM on Sunday as we meet in shared space at 5413 Blue Ridge Cutoff and share a message from Gary Heese on Forgiveness.

By the way, Gary Heese serves on staff at a nearby Vineyard church with duties in the areas of Pastoral Care/Prayer Pastor.  For more about Gary, take a look at the Vineyard Kansas City website.

The Raytown Vineyard Church Values Prayer

March 21, 2010


Why are we are investing so deeply in Prayer, through our gifts, time, and even our finances?  Because in 2010, we are asking God to make the Raytown Vineyard a Praying Church.  (Want to know more?  Check out the 2010 Prayer Invitation.)

After all, it is true that “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”. 

From the very beginning, God has asked us to be a tithing church–where we give away the first 10% of our church’s income before we pay our bills.

We have been blessed to commit over $1500 to the following Kansas City area ministries that are focused on Prayer.  This represents our way of sowing generously into becoming a Praying Church:
