Vineyard is a community oriented church.
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. We offer the BELONG class approximately three times a year as a practical introduction to Christianity, and no question is too pointed or challenging. It also serves as our membership class and is a great place to learn what it means to be a student of Jesus.
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 appreciate the diverse riches of the Christian tradition across social, racial, and denominational boundaries. We participate in the Vineyard: A Community of Churches which includes about 600 churches in the United States and another 800 churches internationally.
