what to expect


Our Sunday services start at 8:30 and 10:15am. 
Each service lasts a little over an hour.

We want to make our worship services safe, practical, and fun for anyone who wants to come. You won't have to do anything you don't want, and we promise not to make you feel put on the spot. Once you arrive, you can grab a free cup of coffee or tea, and relax in our cafe, or head straight into the sanctuary for the service. There will be friendly people around to show you where to go. 

 

friendly people

From the moment you arrive, we want you to feel at home! We've reserved some parking spots close to the main entrance for you and any other visitors.You’ll be greeted with a smile, and we’d love to get to know you. Some of our pastors will be in the cafe after each service; we hope you’ll stop by to say hi!

 

coffee

casual atmosphere

We want you to be our guest! So help yourself to a fresh cup of coffee or tea. Hang out in the cafe before and after the services. Dress however you feel most comfortable; you’ll see everything from shorts to suits. Feel free to call our pastors by their first names. What’s important to us is that you feel welcomed, accepted, and free to worship Jesus with us.

 

 



guitar

great music

We have a band leading songs in a modern pop/rock style. We believe worship is an offering to God in which we all participate, and that through worship we experience God’s presence in our midst. We start the service with one or two opening songs and continue with about 20 minutes of songs after the teaching. 

 

practical teaching

Each week one of our pastors will give a 20-30 minute message. We believe that God still uses the Bible to speak truth into our lives. The messages offer practical insights and are punctuated by personal stories. We often hear great feedback on how the messages really apply to specific situations that people are going through. 

 

prayer

At the end of each service, our prayer teams will be available to pray for you.  Just come up to any team and share your request, big or small.

 

nursery

Nursery is available for children (ages 6 weeks through 18 months) on the main level near the sanctuary.  Your child is also welcome to stay with you in the service. We also have a 'cry' room available for nursing mothers or crying babies, where you can see and hear what's going on in the service.

Options for Children on Sundays 
We have a safe, energetic, developmentally appropriate children's church program for ages 18 months through 6th grades during both services in our lower level Vineyard Kids area.  
For more about our children's ministry, go to the Vineyard Kids page.

*If you would like your child to join our Vineyard Kids children's church program for either service, please follow the Vineyard Kids signs and register them at the check-in desk.  You will receive a number that corresponds to your child's number on their name tag.  If your child needs you for any reason during the service, your number will appear on the screen in the adult service to notify you.  

*Every last Sunday of the month is Family Sunday. The children participate in the adult service for worship and communion, and then head downstairs for their own activities in learning about the Bible. 

*Children are always welcome in the adult service.  If this is your first time visiting, or if your child is just extra attached to you for that day, or if you are more comfortable having your child stay with you, they are welcome to do so.  There are brightly colored bags in the back of the sanctuary with crayons, paper and books available if your child would like to use them. 

 

middle school and high school

Students are a part of our regular weekend services, and have their own gatherings during the week. Through creative teaching, media, discussion, and interactive experiences, students gain a deeper understanding of how the story of God continues through them. Students also have the opportunity to put their faith into practice by doing service projects in the community. Vineyard Student Ministries meets Wednesdays at 6:15 in the Lower Level (use lower level entry doors.)

 

a gift for you

Stop at the Welcome Table in the cafe and pick up a free gift.

After the service is often the time when we see the community really take shape! Stick around and meet some people; you may meet someone who loves the same things you love!

We hope you'll check us out, and if you do, please stop and say "hi" to some of the pastors. We'd love to meet you. Above all else, we hope you find a spiritual home that works well for you, where you would be able to connect with God in a transforming way!
