You might come to the Vineyard for the lively worship or the inspiring teaching, but if you decide to make this your church family, join a small group. We like to say that home groups are the ‘heartbeat’ of life at the Vineyard. These groups “live Jesus’ life together,” as we like to say: learning together, serving together, laughing together and sometimes crying together. We have a few types of small groups, and offerings change seasonally.
Our typical small group meets in a home, and includes worship, prayer and a seasonal book study that follows our Sunday teaching. You can join for a 10-week study each spring and fall with no further commitment.
Most of our groups are listed below, but new groups are always forming. Email our Connect Pastor if you’re interested in help finding a group or…
