Hi Vista ladies!

My name is Sarah Hammond and I am so thankful for the opportunity to serve you and Vista as the Women’s Ministry Coordinator. Many of you I know well and I’m excited to meet those of you that I haven’t yet.

My husband Tim and I have attended Vista for almost 9 years. Tim was serving with the worship team and I have primarily been teaching Bible study on Monday nights while helping with various other women’s ministry events. We’re also blessed to get to do life with the sweetest Vista Small Group who we love dearly. We have 4 kiddos, two girls ages 8 and 2, and two boys ages 6 and 4 yrs. I work as a Resident Director at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. I have a passion for teaching Bible, yet I’m horrible at studying and spending time in the Word. I often feel like a walking contradiction, yet God still desires to use me for His glory and I am overwhelmed by His grace towards me. This is me in a nutshell.

I am so incredibly excited for this next season in our women’s ministry here at Vista. Looking back, we have been so blessed by all that God has done and provided for us. We have received faithful counsel and leadership from Carla Weathersbee, experienced incredible growth through Bible studies and our women’s retreat, and have heard powerful stories of life change and work that God has done and is doing among the women in our church. I’m so thankful to know that God’s work never ends and He has immeasurably more planned to do in us and through us. I’m asking you all to consider how God may desire for you to serve and connect. When we say “yes” to Him, we open doors for life changing movement through the power of the Holy Spirit. I want this for myself and for each of you as well.

Let’s take a look at what’s coming our way in the next few months:

Both of these events are an opportunity for Vista as a church to help women find their fit, a place where they can connect with other women and not journey alone. If you are in a season of spiritual fullness, come mingle in a group you may not know and ask God to lead you to someone who may need some of what you have. If you are in a season of spiritual want, know that God is not finished in your journey; come see what He IS doing and ask what He wants to do in you. Saying “yes” to God is an invitation for Him to enter in to your space and sets the table for Him to begin a new thing in you. We have much to give up and we have much to gain in this journey. Let’s do it together.
