Volunteer with The Learning Zone

New Opportunities to Support the Learning Zone in Changing Kids Lives

The Learning Zone is powerfully changing the trajectory of kids’ lives…and particularly those who God knows are the most powerless and vulnerable. To maintain this impact, the Learning Zone is seeking those who can participate through their skills in:

·         Community fundraising

·         Grant writing

·         Event planning of an annual fundraiser

Could you serve the future of these kids in one of these roles? If so, please contact Pastors Brad or Ron by email or calling the Vineyard office at 310.391.7366.

Learning Zone Garage Sale

Get involved with The Learning ZONE / Mar Vista MEGA Garage Sale

The Learning ZONE / Mar Vista MEGA Garage Sale will be held Saturday, May 6, from 8am-1pm in partnership with the Mar Vista Community Council and entire Mar Vista community.

Last year, we surpassed our extremely ambitious goal of raising $10,000 over the Garage Sale weekend through sales and donations. Our goal once again this year is to raise $10,000 to assist with ongoing Learning ZONE operations, which includes an upgrade to sophisticated web-based Math & English foundational curriculum, educational field trips and pursuing broader fundraising efforts to ultimately expand the Learning ZONE scope and student roster. 

There are four ways you can help:

  1. PRAY for the Learning ZONE and the event!
     
  2. HOST your own Garage Sale on Saturday, May 6 and dedicate all proceeds to the Learning ZONE.
     
  3. DONATE some quality unwanted items to the Learning ZONE sale. You can drop those off at "Garage Sale Headquarters" (North / Youth Lot) any time Friday, May 5, between 12pm-8pm.
     
  4. VOLUNTEER! We need volunteers on Friday, May 5, from 12pm-8pm to help receive, sort and prepare all of the donations for the sale. We also need a great number of volunteers on the day of the event, Saturday, May 6, from 6am-3pm, to assist with event set-up and tear-down, serve as security, cashiers, sales attendants, maintenance and other positions vital for a successful event.

If you are interested in serving in any way, please contact Learning ZONE Director Ron Petronicolos at 323.839.7738 or Ron@WestsideLearningZONE.com

Home Churches (Small Groups)
Apr
23
to May 1

Home Churches (Small Groups)

Relationally-centered gatherings where we can join others in worship, Bible study, community, and ministry prayer. 

The reality is that we don’t attend a church… we are the church. What we attend are gatherings of the church. The larger gatherings serve some very unique and vital aspects of our spiritual life. However, as we leave the larger gatherings, we are likely to sense an unconscious and interesting dynamic in terms of connection. We may sense something of the profound mystery of being spiritually connected through joining our voice with others in worship… or taking communion from the common elements. But we are also likely to leave in our cars a bit lonely as well. Because we were in a crowd but not personally known. 

That is where the Home Church and support groups provide real life. It is in these relationally centered gatherings that we can be joined by others in the real life that we are living… and stand with others in what God is working in them.  It is in such an interactive context that we exercise the process of God’s word speaking to us… and His Spirit speaking through one another. It is there that we discover that Jesus is not only in us… but among us… just as he said. (Matthew 18:20).

Men's Breakfast

The Purpose of Men Continues….

A Call to Men with Linus Morris

We are very privileged to have Linus Morris come speak into our calling as men.

To know Linus is to know one who has had their life changed by the call of God…and continues to live and share that calling in a way that speaks to every man.

Linus began bringing the calling of Jesus to lives in the anti-establishment years of the 1970s…many of whom have become leaders…including pastors of Vineyard churches. He then helped plant churches in international cities of Europe and beyond….bringing Christ to the post-Christian cultures of our day. He now trains leaders in Africa, Brazil, and other countries that are prepared to create viral movements in their own cultures. Linus and his wife Sharon are neighbors here on the Westside and have 6 children and 14 grandchildren.

Tickets will support our Youth Camp Scholarships Fund. The youth will cook & serve, and will be blessed by your support! Tickets are $10 each for adults and $7 for high school students.
