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!

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!

Eat, Pray, Love - Prayer Group

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face.....I will heal their land."

Description: Our land is broken and God's word tells us how to facilitate healing; humble ourselves, pray and seek His face.  Our home group will endeavor to do just that but my philosophy has always been to feed 'em first.  We'll eat, we'll pray and love on each other. Our desire is to be filled up to overflowing so it will spill over on those around us. 

Lead and Hosted at Matt & Lyndsay Burley’s home.
