Plan a Visit
What can I expect when I first arrive?
Beginning on May 2, we will gather for outdoor, physically distanced worship services on Sundays at 10am and 11:15am. We will have seating on the grassy hill in front of our building (BYO chair/blanket). Or, if you prefer, you can watch from your car and tune in via the radio! And we always livestream our service at 10am for those at home or away. You can find parking in our lot or at a couple of our neighbors’ lots. We’ll cancel in-person worship for bad weather, so if you notice precipitation or temperatures below 40F on Sunday morning, stay home and join our livestream service always at 10am. Adults and children over 3 will be required to wear a mask for the entire service. We’d love to share a free KN95 mask with you if need one when you arrive! If you prefer to not wear a face mask, we invite you to join us from your car while listening on the radio.
We will provide a printed bulletin with any information that you need, and there will also be a link made available to a digital version if you prefer.
What are services like?
You’ll find the atmosphere festive and welcoming. Our band leads inclusive worship in a pop-rock-gospel style, including songs by artists like Ryan Delmore, Jeremy Riddle, and Matt Redman, as well as classic songs. Opening worship is followed by a few brief announcements highlighting upcoming events. Then one of our pastors shares a message from the Bible that’s not only easy to understand but practical as well. The 40-45 minute service concludes with worship and communion. We encourage you to bring a solid and liquid to participate in communion, and we will also have pre-packaged elements available for you if you prefer.
What’s the clothing culture?
You’re welcome to “come as you are.” That means you don’t have to dress up. Because the Vineyard is very casual, you’ll feel comfortable in your jeans and t-shirt. Some just can’t help dressing up, and they fit right in as well. The point is that we feel church should be about things other than how you dress and look.
What happens with the kids?
Children are welcome to join our celebration along with their families! Starting in June, we’ll have outdoor “classes” for kids to worship and learn with their peers during our 11:15 service time. Kids over 3 years old are asked to wear a mask.
