Small Groups


Be known. Grow.

We gather in smaller groups to get to know each other. To facilitate this, we have various groups which meet on a seasonal rotation. Want to meet someone new? A small group is a great place to start.

Fall Groups are open for registration NOW. See the FALL GROUPS GUIDE below.

We have a church rhythm; this is how it works:
We rest during September, January and May. Small groups do not meet during these months, but you may sign up for one. After each rest month are three active months: our fall session runs October- December, our winter session runs February- April, and our summer season runs June-August.

Every small group falls into one of four catogories:

LIFE GROUPS
Life Groups share seasons of life and build community. These groups are based on shared demographics (ex: moms, young married couples, sages). These groups are open for visitors and can be joined at any time.

GROWTH GROUPS
Growth Groups provide a community of discipleship. Bible studies, topical groups and devotional curriculums provide a connection to God and to each other (ex: video curriculum, group spiritual direction, the Core Discipleship courses). Growth Groups are available to join only during the rest months. Once the group has started, the next opportunity to join will be during the next session.

SOCIAL GROUPS
Social Groups seek connection based on shared interest or activity. Adding to community life, these groups meet where the interest or activity requires. (ex: frisbee golf, knitting, dinner groups). These groups are open to visitors and can be joined by anyone at any time.

HEALING & RECOVERY GROUPS
Healing and Recovery Groups are a place to process addiction, wounded-ness and shame (ex: celebrate recovery, moral injury support, marriage restoration). Healing and Recovery groups are available to join only during the rest months. Once the group has started, the next opportunity to join will be during the next session.

We will have a writing exercise each session, and we'll all share something we're working on for constructive criticism and kind comments from the group to help us grow and stay motivated in our writing endeavors.

GROWTH GROUPS
Life in the Spirit: A Core Course
Tuesdays @ 7pm  • Vineyard Church
Sign-up: Currently Closed

How does God’s Spirit help us to live in harmony? How do I tell others about Jesus?

As Jesus’ disciples, how we live together matters for our own growth. It also helps the people around us believe what we have to say. This course explores how we can live in harmony through the presence of God’s Spirit with us, and how to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit as God helps us lead people into a relationship with Him. This course encompasses both former Core Four Courses of Life in the Spirit and Power Evangelism.

Spiritual CPR

We will utilize excerpts from the Bible, movies, books, music, and skits on topics of dual lives, temperaments and personalities, motivational gifts, hearing the voice of God, and recognizing his creativity, goals, emotions, future plans. Bring a sack lunch.
