What to Expect
We meet at 10:30am Sundays
at Johnson Elementary School
On any given Sunday, we want you to know that our primary hope for you, from your first time to your 101st time, is that you would experience the love and presence of God. We know that being in God’s presence can be the most transformative, encouraging and satisfying aspect of anyone’s faith. So, we build everything around that one simple idea… experiencing God.
When You Arrive
As you arrive, you’ll see signage welcoming and directing you into the school. As soon as you approach the doors, you’ll be met by a smiling face and a warm greeting. Before entering the auditorium, enjoy the fresh coffee and welcoming spread of food waiting for you.
If you have children, just walk past the auditorium doors and the coffee station to our sign-in area for the Ark (our kid's ministry).
Safety & security are important to us, so you'll be asked to take a moment to sign them in before they join their new friends in a fun and loving environment. Depending on age, your children will have an interactive, creative lesson and some time for play before they join you again.
On that note, because we value family, children above nursery age will join the whole church family for worship after the morning's message is complete. Don't worry... we'll tell you when it's time to gather them.
After an opening song and announcements, you'll hear a practical and relevant message, grounded in scripture.
We follow the message with our response time (communion, offering, children welcomed back... then worship). Worship is contemporary, a mixture of styles intended to hit home for our multi-ethnic and multi-generational crowd.
During worship, we have a prayer ministry team available to pray with/for you. You'll find them in the back of the auditorium. Take them up on it... they'd love to pray for you.
What should I wear?
At the Vineyard, we’re casual. What matters to us is not what you’re wearing, but whether you meet with God while you’re with us. To give you a better feel, many of our regulars will wear the sort of outfit they might normally wear to a casual cookout with friends. “Come as you are” is the theme, whether that’s dressed up or dressed down.
