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!

NE Tacoma Home Group

Lead & Hosted by Pastor Gary and Lori Georgeson

Every other Friday at 7 pm, April 26 - June 7 2019

5333 Orca Dr NE, Tacoma

Theme: Proverbs: Wisdom for Life

Proverb - wisdom for life 2.jpg

If you seek true Wisdom, the Bible promises blessing, long life, peace, health, and God’s favor.  That’s not too bad!  Wisdom is the ability to deal in the right way with life’s complexities and challenges.  Wisdom in the Bible is always seen as both practical and spiritual.  Sometimes, it is saying “no” to sin, or a wrong moral choice.  Sometimes it is simply making a good decision.

Starting on Friday, April 26th, the NE Tacoma Small Group will start a series on the book of Proverbs, which will uncover some of the most powerful and applicable words of wisdom offered to us from God. Find out about:

  • Being a person who values correction.

  • Using words for great evil or great good

  • Doing relationships God’s way

  • Pride, Positivity and the Guarded Heart

Led by Pastor Gary and Lori, each session will include a short teaching, followed by discussion questions to help you engage in the content and apply it to your life.  

We are SO excited about this group and we’d love to have you join us on this adventure through the book of Proverbs.

The group will meet every other Friday evening for 4 sessions. Childcare is provided at no cost. Here are the dates:

Friday, April 26, 7pm                               Friday, May 24, 7pm

Friday, May 10, 7pm                               Friday, June 7, 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!

“Leaping Into Love”

Lead & Hosted by Pastor Michelle Paxton, Hosted by Holly Willard

Every other Monday at 7 pm, April 8 - June 17th

2324 S. "J" St, Tacoma

As women running after Jesus you are someone’s daughter, you are someone’s friend, maybe a wife, maybe mother, but before all those things you are God’s beloved. You are the Kings Beloved Daughter. But (yes, there is always a but) most of us women aren’t able to love ourselves the way our King loves us. We have a chance to “Leap Into Love” and learn how radical love and acceptance of who we are can change our lives.

I invite you to join me in a journey of learning how to let go of the worldview of yourself and step into the who God made you to be physically & spiritually.

Pastor Michelle

Note: A sign up sheet and book pre-order will be available at church over the next few Sundays. There will be a small charge for the book, which you may pay at church or at the first evening of the study.
