APART FROM ME, YOU CAN DO NOTHING..”

The Woman Inside is Drifting Away

By Cyndy Gusler | December 27, 2018

Time is fleeting! In one of my study books, I found this passage that smacked me right in the face. “God knows the desires of my heart – He put them there. He knows the amount of daydreaming – and praying – I do about becoming the kind of woman…

Car Wash Christmas

By Cyndy Gusler | December 16, 2018

He Told the Fish to Go Away

By Cyndy Gusler | October 23, 2018

Vineyard update: 
In 2009, the Lord told me to leave my church position and start designing the Vineyard with the single purpose of creating a safe haven for our community members to come and find wisdom, encouragement, resources and compassion in their public and private struggles. Whether you are an overwhelmed parent or someone dealing with a private issue, the Vineyard was/is specifically designed for you. Through the 10 years that He has grown and brought us to where we are, there are countless stories of single intimate life-changing moments that have happened... only because we have obeyed, stepping out in blind faith. Today was no exception. 

I was invited to an area network group to share the Vineyard’s purpose and story. But meeting the people and hearing their needs were much more important. What we do does not fit into a human spreadsheet; it completely goes against all normalcy in society. And yet, God keeps calling us to step out, bringing people our away, and providing in ways that are utterly unbelievable!

I know many of you have been reading about the Vineyard but if you want to see and know what we do, or hear the story of why we exist, please please reach out to us and/or stop by. 

We are here. We are real and transparent. We are His safe haven. 

We love you.
