Whether you've connected with our church before or it's your first time, we're excited that you're here.  It's our hope that you always feel welcome at The Vineyard, and that you are draw to God and experience His love when you are here.  

  1. When you arrive you will be greeted by someone at the door who will give you a "Welcome Packet".  This packet contains a brochure about our church, information about Vineyard USA (the Association of Church of which we are a part), a Connect Card (to let us know more about you), and a Vineyard chocolate bar as our gift to you for visiting. 
  2. Pre-Service - 9:45 - 10:00am is time for connecting with others around food and coffee. Please help yourself to a coffee, tea and a breakfast buffet.  You may sit at a round table or in a row of chairs, wherever you are most comfortable. You may notice that some people are standing in a circle in the stage area praying.  These are our leaders who are saying a brief prayer before the service begins. 
  3. We'll start with some music.  Our music is contemporary (guitars, a key board and drums) and is meant to be a way of celebrating who God is and what He has done in our lives.  You are welcome to sing along, lift your hands, or sit quietly and enjoy the music.  There is no "right" way to worship the Lord and we want you to feel comfortable doing whatever comes naturally for you during this time. 
  4. We'll cover some church happenings and dismiss the children to attend age appropriate classes - After the worship time, there will be some brief announcements about upcoming events and happenings in the church. Then the children are released to go to their classes.  
    1. Nursery (Ages 0 - 4) - You may check your child into the nursery at any time during the service (including the worship time). The nursery is run by a trained staff member.  Children ages 2-4 participate in an age appropriate bible lesson during the last half of the service time (during the adult sermon). 
    2. Club Disciples of Christ (K-5th grade) - Children participating in this class are released after Announcements.  The Club DC teacher will meet your child at the exit doors and will escort him/her to class.  You are also welcome to walk your child to class and stay as long as you would like.  After class, please pick up your child at the classroom door. 
    3. Youth (6th - 12th grade) - Students participating in the Youth Class are released after Announcements.  The Youth Class leader will meet your student outside of the sanctuary exit door and walk him/her to class.  After class, the Youth leader will walk with your student back to the sanctuary or you may come to the classroom to pick up your child.  
  5. The pastor will give a bible-based message. One of our pastors will share a practical teaching to encourage you in your walk of faith.  You may follow along with the sermon using the insert provided in your bulletin and the Power Point presentation.   Feel free to take notes and apply the sermon to your life.  If you miss a week, you may listen to the sermon online. 
  6. Receive prayer if you feel led. In the final few minutes of our service those who would like prayer for a personal need, a sickness, or a loved one are invited to pray with a member of our Prayer Team.  All Prayer Team members are trained and experienced in prayer ministry.  At the Vineyard we believe in a God who heals us physically, emotionally, heals our relationships and works powerfully in our circumstances.  In other words, we believe that God is present and active in our lives.  Please don't hesitate to ask for prayer if you are in need of God's help, comfort or direction.
  7. Stick around after the service  - Please stay around after the service to meet the friendly and accepting people in our church family.  Help yourself to a drink or donut and don't be surprised if those around you introduce themselves and welcome you warmly.

We are all on this journey of life together and we're not meant to walk alone.  Come and hang out with us this Sunday and discover what a difference a healthy church family can make in your life. 

Welcome! - You'll be warmly greeted as you enter the building.
