Ordinary people changing the world one life at a time.
Although our service time starts at 10am, we intentionally open our fellowship time with Coffee & Conversation. Feel free to grab something to drink (it's free!) and make a new friend. If you're visiting for the first time, please fill out a Connection Card and drop it in the offering basket to receive a free gift from us in the mail. This is our way to say thanks for spending your Sunday morning with us!
Then we move into a time of Celebration and Worship. We spend approximately 25-30 minutes singing about and to God, expressing our thanks and love to Him through music. This means that those around you may sing, sit, stand, clap or even raise their hands or dance during our worship time. The words to the songs are projected on the screen so that you can join in, if you'd like.
Towards the end of our worship time we continue to honor God with our Tithes and Offerings. What this simply means is that we give God back a portion of what He's given to us, so that the church can give to others. We celebrate His goodness to us and see the offering as a time of joy and thankfulness.
Before our teaching time, Announcements will be given and the children (grades K-5) will be released to Vineyard Kids Church. Our children are important to us, so our Kids Church Volunteers are selected with the utmost care. We like to teach our children how to pray, how to hear from God and how to learn God's Word, so don't be surprised if you see our children praying for others. Children can be picked up from our Kids Church classroom immediately following the service.
The Teaching time comes from one of our leaders and is often interactive. Don't hesitate to ask questions, share or respond if the leader asks for input or discussion.
Once a month we celebrate Communion ("The Lord's Supper") sometime during worship or after the teaching time. After the teaching time, we end our service with what we refer to as "ministry time." This is a time when those who want to receive prayer or respond to God can come forward. A trained member of our ministry team will pray for you and ask God to meet you in that moment.
While the order of our service may change from time to time, the events listed above are usually what you can expect when you come to one of our services. We encourage you to participate in as much as you feel comfortable in doing so. We look forward to meeting you and hope that you will come and check us out. Feel free to dress casually and don't hesitate to ask any questions that you might have. We'd love to meet you!
