What to expect

The very first thing we’ll ask of you is simple: relax. You’re with friends. Even if you’ve never been in church before, you’ll have no worries about being flagged as a “newbie.” Or finding yourself “volunteered” to make seven dozen cookies for the first grade class.

What you will find is this:

• A casual atmosphere

• Friendly people who’ll help you find your way around

• Today’s music

• Messages relevant to your daily life

• A cool children’s program

• That you matter to God – and to the Vineyard Community

Whether you’re single, married, single again, with or without children – no matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done – we invite you to experience the difference here. You’re in good company with those of us who are reconnecting with others of faith... just exploring who God is... or rediscovering what church can be.

Wondering what to expect? No one is going to single you out or ask you to stand up and give your name. Grab a free coffee, bring it into the Auditorium and relax. Here is what happens…

  • Sing: For the first 20 to 30 minutes or so, we’ll sing some simple songs to God. Feel free to have a seat anytime during the worship service. Some people like to stand the entire time. Just be comfortable. Check out our Worship page if you are interested in learning more about worship at the Vineyard Community.
  • Giving: Just prior to the end of our singing, we take up the tithes and offerings. This is for those who value the mission of the Vineyard Community and are learning to give. We use this time to give back to God a portion of what He’s given to us. Remember, it all belongs to Him.
  • Welcome: We’ll briefly tell you about a few things happening around here.
  • Message: Our speaker will give a 30 to 40 minute message about applying God’s truths to life’s challenges. Check out our Online Sermons to sample the type of message you will hear at the Vineyard Community.
  • The Big Finish: Occassionally, we'll end with another worship song but mostly we close with a short prayer and that’s it. If you like, individual prayer is offered at the front of the Auditorium after every service. Feel free to grab another cup of coffee and connect with others.
  • What about our children? Your children are important to us and we provide a full children’s ministry for infants through children 12 years of age.

    What do people wear? We are a come as you are church so most people dress very casually. The most important thing to us is that you feel comfortable. We’re pretty sure that what you wear doesn’t matter to God, so it doesn’t matter to us either!
