Welcome to our church!
As a first step, we encourage you to simply get to know us. Hang out with us. Understand that relationships take time and learning a new church family also takes time. But as you spend time with us, the Lord is going to do something powerful! This is a new season for you. Allow the Lord to speak into your life at this moment in time. Allow God to love you; allow Him to heal your heart in a new environment.
With that said, the first steps would certainly involve exploring the following areas so that you can feel connected:
Pray, Pray, Pray:
Begin a conversational relationship with Jesus Christ – inviting him in, confessing your sins, receiving his love, giving him leadership, etc. Invite the presence of God into every aspect of your life. Jesus loves you more than you know! He died on the cross to cover your sins and mishaps; he rose from the dead to give you new life.
Join us on Sundays:
Regularly join us for our Sunday worship service at 10:00 AM. This will strengthen your faith, encourage your heart, and connect you with the bigger picture of what God is doing in our church family. It will also help connect you with us relationally over the course of time. Click here for What to Expect on Sundays.
Join us for Coffee & Connections:
This is our monthly gathering for people who are new to the Vineyard. We have Coffee & Connections on the fourth Sunday of every month, immediately following service at approximately 11:30 am. You will get to know our pastors and leaders, learn about the church, and explore how to get connected. No need to RSVP for this monthly event, just show up!
Find a Small Group:
We are a relational church. We encourage every new member to check out the different small groups our church offers. Through involvement in a group, you will build genuine relationships with other Christ followers. Let’s do life together! Click here for Small Groups.
Jump on Opportunities:
Don’t be afraid to volunteer and attend outreach events and church social events, as announced.
Come as a Servant:
Much like Jesus who came into the world not to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for others. With the same heart, we encourage you to come ready for God to use you to be a blessing to those around you. Look for small ways to encourage and strengthen the people around you. This is what we are called to do!
If you’re having trouble connecting, we would like to help you. Contact Nathan Gnau, Connections Ministry Leader: email@example.com
