Small Groups

The Christian life is intended to be shared in community and relationship, and not just by observing from the fringe.  Small groups are a perfect place to grow, be known, and to make a real difference in other people’s lives.  They are where your heart and gifts can be truly shared. Here in the Vineyard we offer a variety of groups so that everyone can find a place to fit in.  Make the decision today to become a part of a small group here in the Vineyard!

“Marriages either get better or worse. They never stand still."-- Gary Chapman

If you’ve been married for any length of time, then you can probably relate to this truth.  Marriage takes work, and with the busy lives that we live, it can be hard to keep your marriage a priority. We have found that attending a marriage group can help tremendously to refocus your marriage, correct any unhealthy patterns, and revitalize the connection between you and your spouse.  

Starting on Friday, January 25th, the NE Tacoma Small Group will start a series on marriage titled, The Marriage You’ve Always Wanted.  This series, based on the book by Gary Chapman, will focus on the 5 core areas that are most important to the success of every marriage.

  • Communication

  • Understanding and expressing loe

  • Initiating positive change

  • Making sex a mutual joy

  • Conflict resolution

Led by Pastor Gary and Lori, each session will include short video segments, followed by discussion questions to help you and your spouse engage in the content and apply it to your lives.

You will also receive a workbook, which is packed with practical tips and devotional content which compliments what we will learn in the group.

We are SO excited about this group and we’d love to have you and your spouse join us on this adventure. If you would like to attend but your spouse cannot, that is fine.  The workbook can be used at home to enhance what you learn at the group.

The group will meet every other Friday evening for 5 sessions. Here are the dates:

Friday, January 25 7 pm

Friday, February 8, 7 pm

Friday, February 22, 7 pm

Friday, March 8, 7 pm

Friday, March 22nd, 7 pm

Men's group- Thursdays

The Men's Group meets at Pastor Gary's home on Thursday evenings, twice per month, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m (see Church Calendar for exact dates). The goal of the fellowship is to provide the support and encouragement every man needs to follow hard after God. No man can do it alone. We have come to see we need each other in order to become all that God wants us to be.

Come join us!
