Vineyard Church of Marysville: Our Story
In September 2000, Vineyard Church of Marysville began as a home group. We were officially planted out of Vineyard Columbus. The original core team consisted of five couples, all long-time residents of Marysville and Union County. When our home group grew to approximately twenty adults, we started a second group.
In January 2001, we began having Sunday evening gatherings at Mill Valley Elementary School, calling it, A Taste of Vineyard. We met at the Mill Valley Elementary School. In September of that year, the attendance was approximately 60-65 people and there was a growing sense of excitement in what God was doing among us!
In January 2002, we began meeting regularly on Sunday mornings. We were still meeting at the school at this time. We grew to approximately 100 people, with six small groups meeting in homes throughout the week.
In April 2003, through a miraculous series of events, we were able to purchase our current 5th Street facility. The building has been a blessing to us over the years. We have grown to an average of 200-220 on a typical weekend. Even today, God continues to strengthen and lead us as a church! The Lord is stirring our hearts and doing new things in our midst! “Come, Holy Spirit,” we continue to pray, “Use us to bring more and more people to Jesus and advance your kingdom in Marysville and beyond!” That’s our history in a nutshell. We invite you to partner with us into the future; our story is still being written!
The Vineyard Association of Churches: Our Tribe
The Vineyard story is about ordinary people who worship and serve an extraordinary God. The Vineyard is simply one thread in the rich tapestry of the historic and global Church of Jesus Christ. But it is a thread of God’s weaving.
From the beginning, Vineyard pastors and leaders have sought to hold in tension the biblical doctrines of the Christian faith with an ardent pursuit of the present day work of the Spirit of God. Maintaining that balance is never easy in the midst of rapid growth and renewal.
