On Saturday, December 8th we will be hosting our annual Christmas For the City event during which we will be looking to provide coats, blankets, and heaters for 600 people in our city.  By helping to keep these families warm we are able to remind people in our community that God loves them, and that there is a place for them at Vista. You can help make this event happen by purchasing a new coat for someone your size and bringing it to Vista throughout the month of November.

You can also text: “Local” and the amount you want to give to 84321 and donate $40 to provide items for one person or $125 to provide items for a family of four. Additionally, you can participate in distributing items to families in need by volunteering at the event on December 8th. We are so excited love families in need and keep our city warm this December, and hope that you will join us as we put action to what it means to love God and love people.
