Our Services

What are services like?
Vineyard is a multi-ethnic church that blends the vibrant faith of the historic Christian creeds with a sympathetic and discerning approach to contemporary culture. Worship style is informal, with music in the pop-rock (with a dash of gospel) style. Dress is casual. Combined average attendance at the Sunday celebrations is over 600. Children’s Ministry is available at both services for nursery through fourth grade in age appropriate classes. Youth Ministry (Middle School and High School) is also available at both celebrations. Fresh gourmet coffee is on hand before and after the celebrations.

What is the community like?
Vineyard is a community oriented church. We seek to foster personal relationships that enhance spiritual growth (we have many groups to choose from) and are committed to serving the local community. We embrace an active and contemplative approach to spirituality. We aim to pray for the sick as Jesus did - in a low-key, non-hype ministry style. We value the empowering presence of the Spirit and a vibrant practice of the spiritual gifts. We also value the spiritual disciplines of silence, solitude, and fixed-hour prayer. In fact, our church web site is the host for The Divine Hours by Phyllis Tickle, a flexible and contemporary approach to praying at regular intervals through the day, adapted from the Book of Common Prayer. We also highly value the spiritual path outlined in the Twelve Steps.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We value an innovative approach to ministry, with multimedia enhanced worship celebrations, an active website, and an entrepreneurial approach to launching new ministries. We are passionate about making Christianity accessible to people with no previous God-connection. We seek to overcome the cultural barriers that unintentionally exclude those who haven’t committed themselves to the path of Jesus. This makes the journey more invigorating for all concerned. We provide practical help to people seeking to understand the hows and whys of Christian life.
