Mission and Social Justice

Our Mission Statement

Mission/Outreach is an integral part of VGUCC ministries. We will pursue opportunities that are reflective of Justice and Peace, denominational and ecumenical, local and global, participatory and financial. Our mission and outreach will make a difference – empowering recipients and inspiring givers to act in the spirit of Christ; exemplifying the 3 Great Loves: Love of Neighbor; Love of Children; Love of Creation.

Wednesdays ~ Inside Out Youth Services

Qmmunity Dinner – 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM – Every Wednesday afternoon, we gather and have a home cooked meal together as a community.
Check In – 5:30 PM – 6:00 PM – A daily event at Inside Out where we each share our name, age, and pronouns, talk about the rules of the space, and get to know each other a little better! We also make time for youth announcements, which gives everyone an opportunity to share about what’s going on in their lives!
Nancy and Bob Hollins spend most Wednesdays sharing a meal with the youth.

We at Vista Grande have made it our mission to build relationships with the missions we support.
