The process by which trees take root is a parallel used in the Bible for our relationship with God and with each other. Establishing a firm foundation is essential to growth and long-term endurance as a believer. What can you expect, and what is expected of you, as you transition from being a casual attender to a committed member of VCC?
We encourage you to find the answers in these ways:
1, Enjoy a Newcomer’s Lunch. These occur every other month after morning service. Check our calendar for the next one. During this hour you’ll learn the history, vision and values of VCC while enjoying subs and IBC root beer. It’s a great “first date”, childcare is provided, and there is plenty of time for questions afterward.
2, Attend a Membership Class, held every 1st Sunday at 5pm. During this class Pastor Jeff talks about the nuts and bolts of becoming a disciple of Jesus and a true part of the body of Christ at Vineyard Community Church. We’ll discuss various pathways to true discipleship, such as personal time with God, healthy marriage and family, spiritual mentors, care for the poor, and many others. Enjoy videos of vintage Vineyard history and explore ways that you can share your gifts and talents with VCC. Childcare is provided for these meetings.
3, Join a Home Group. Groups meet all over town, 6 days a week, and locations can be found on our Home Groups page. At these weekly groups we build genuine fellowship as we worship, explore the Bible, hang out and eat together.
4, Keep learning and serving others. Opportunities abound to grow in your faith and reach out to others. Whether it’s helping with an outreach to the homeless, participating in continued discipleship training at Sunday Night Stuff, or serving others in kids church or worship, all members are encouraged to keep growing into Christians who are active participants in the life of the church.
