4 Easy Steps

 

We are so glad you are here!

 

We know getting plugged in to a new church can be tricky, so we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you to feel at home.  Check out these four easy steps...Don’t be afraid to jump in and ask questions- we are thrilled you are checking us out! 

 

1. Three Minute Hello

The first few weeks at any new church can feel overwhelming- you don’t know how things work and you probably want to know more about the community and our beliefs.  We want you to be able to answer those questions.  Once a month after the service, our leaders and elders congregate around the olive trees right outside the front doors. They are EAGERLY anticipating a chance to meet you and answer any questions you might have.

 

2. Community Cafe

Several times a year we offer a chance for the whole church to attend one time gatherings for dessert or dinner. These gatherings are held at homes all over town and are simply a way to meet others from the Vineyard.

 

3. Vineyard Communities

We believe we come most alive with Jesus when we are living and serving in the context of community. So if you're ready to dig in, consider joining one of our longer-term Vineyard Communities. Each of our groups is a bit different, so visit a few before deciding which is the best fit for you. Contact  Vineyardcommunitygroups@gmail.com to get more information. 

 

4. Serving

For those who feel a calling to be a little more involved in serving our church and our community, there are a variety of ways  you can use your gifts, talents, and money to welcome and serve each other. Talk to your small group leader or email Chris DeHaan at chrisdehaan1@gmail.com

Vineyard Communities

At the Vineyard we believe people are designed to know and experience the love of Christ within the gritty context of community. Small groups are committed to living life together while experiencing God's tangible love through worship, prayer, service, and allowing these to shape our engagement as ministers of reconciliation in our world and immediate community.

 

Vineyard Communities meet throughout the week, all over the city. Scroll down to meet our leaders, and then request info at vineyardcommunitygroups@gmail.com to get connected.
