The best way to get to know others at Vineyard is to spend time with others. Our Life Groups are intentional about fostering friendship, sharing life, food, prayer, getting to know Jesus, reading and discussing the Bible, ministry with others, discussion and worship in life and song. 

Our Groups go for 8 weeks, with sessions that begin in February and August.  We also have ongoing weekly and monthly serve groups. Check them out below.

Prayer Group

Intercessory Prayer , Sundays 8:15 - 9:15 AM (ongoing)

Learn to practice intimacy with the Lord serving the church, our community and the world in prayer. This group teaches us how to wait on the Holy Spirit, and how to pray in the power of the Holy Spirit. We learn how to listen spiritually and monitor our responses to eliminate personal agendas, and be open to what God is doing and saying in our midst.

God is our silent teacher, and drawing close to Him in intimacy is achieved by the regular practice of praying together. Anyone can join us every Sunday morning.
