Fellowship means being a part of a group, a body of people.

It is Love and Acceptance for all.

It is opposed to isolation, solitude, and loneliness.  Of course it does not stop there because we can be in a crowd of people and even share certain ideals or interests in common, but still not have fellowship.

Fellowship means having or sharing with others certain interests we have in common such as goals, feelings, beliefs, activities, labor, privileges as well as responsibilities, experiences, and concerns.

Our Fellowship here at Vernon crosses over into all our Four Core Values.

It is spreading, through our feelings and actions, the Word of God and the teachings of Jesus Christ our Savior.

Caring Relationships: A loving, connected community is essential to our identity.

Believe in Each Other

Each year, members of our church participate in a wide range of service opportunities to help spread the love of God. Loving, connected community is central to our identity.

Cross-generational relationships are essential to our sense of well-being and identity. From the very youngest to the oldest, we live as the united, inclusive and inviting family of God’s beloved.
