So you're wondering what to expect when you come for the first time... First time visits can always be a bit intimidating. At the Vineyard, we do our best to make every guest feel welcome! Don't be surprised if you find that people genuinely want to get to know you. We are people who are motivated by the love of Christ, and are looking to draw people into community and get connected with God! We encourage people to engage in conversation that will bring each other closer together and develop healthy relationships.
We start out our weekend services with a time of worship music for about a half hour. We have a worship band that leads us in singing! Sometimes this leads people to sharing testimonies of what God has done, or what they feel like God speaking to them. Then we will have a take a brief moment to share updates on what is happening within our community. We also have a time of teaching based on God's word. We use the Bible to teach, instruct, & encourage each other into good works that will draw us closer to Jesus and have an impact on the Lakes Region.
Do you know that God listens? At the end of each service, we have times of prayer where we will offer prayer for anyone who is in need. We believe that when we pray, God hears our prayers- whether it is prayer for something emotional, physical, spiritual or financial, we will come along side you and pray with you.
We hope that this helps you in knowing what to expect when you come and visit us.
