"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10
At Vista Church, the love of Jesus compels us to love and serve the community around us in meaningful and tangible ways.
NEIGHBORHOOD SUMMER CLUBS
God values kids, and we do too! Neighborhood Summer Clubs are designed to be in a kid's world, speaking a kid's language, so that children (ages 4-10) can connect with God. We play crazy games, make wacky crafts, have interactive, engaging lessons about God, get to know each other in small groups, and have an all-around fun, high-energy time! This year, the theme is "KNOCK KNOCK" and we'll be finding out what it means that Jesus, the perfect creator of all things, is knocking at the door of our hearts and wants to be with us.
To host a club in your own neighborhood, click here. We'll give you an easy-to-follow plan and all the supplies you'll need to connect your own neighborhood with God!

Jesus knew what it was like to be in need. Are you in need of food? If you are unemployed or underemployed and in need, our Food Pantry provides groceries as an expression of Jesus Christ’s love for you. The Food Pantry is open on Tuesdays from 2:30-3:00 pm at Vista Community Church. For more information, call 407-306-8000.

PUBLIC SCHOOL PARTNERSHIPS
We believe that families and children matter because Jesus believes that families and children matter. Throughout the school year, we are looking for ways to bless our neighboring schools: Hidden Oaks Elementary, Pinar Elementary, Liberty Middle, Odyssey Middle, Colonial High, and Lake Nona High. We've given backpacks at the beginning of the year, cleaned up school property, and provided mentors & student leadership opportunities through organizations like Kids Hope USA, Cru, and First Priority.
If you have an idea of how we can bless one of our schools, please contact email@example.com.
We see our facility as a gift from God. We want to use it in whatever way we can to help build our community and make it a better place. God has led us to use our building as a voting site for two local precincts. We also host a variety of homeowner's association meetings, school concerts, and periodic health fairs.
