Who We Are
The Vineyard Church of Wellsboro is one of 600 Vineyard Churches nationwide and is affiliated with the Vineyard Church USA (see vineyardusa.org for more info). We gather every Sunday evening to deepen our relationship with Jesus and to enjoy one another's company. Our service lasts about 90 minutes. While we're there we experience excellent worship music with a contemporary band, and hear a message from the Bible that's relevant, practical and encouraging. Because we have so many children in our church, there’s a well-staffed nursery and Sunday School programs for the children. Plus, we serve great coffee and bagels and healthy snacks (for free I might add :-)!
One of the most powerful aspects of Jesus’ ministry was that He was personal, and relational. It’s hard to experience love from a distance. We experience love best as we interact with other people. Relationships are what bring and connect people to the Body of Christ. So while worship services are a very important part of our church life, it's at our small group meetings during the week that we experience real fellowship. Many have said that it’s the first time in their lives that they’ve ever developed deep relationships and felt connected to other people.
As a church we’re also aware that nearly 2/3 of the people in Tioga County have no church affiliation. It has been said that loving deeds done by unassuming Christians convince more people of the love of God than all the words in the world! One of the important ministries of our church is connecting with this un-churched population in practical and relevant ways. We have fun together experiencing new ways that we can reach out in love to our families, friends, and neighbors.
If you're looking for a church home where you can grow spiritually, or if you would like to re-connect with God, then come and visit us at the Vineyard Church of Wellsboro. If you have any questions, please give us a call or email us. We'd love to hear from you.
