We strive to make Sunday mornings safe, practical, and fun for anyone who wants to come. You won't have to do anything you don't want, and we promise not to make you feel put on the spot. Once you arrive, you can grab a free cup of coffee or tea, and relax in our Cafe, or head straight into the Sanctuary for the service. There will be friendly people around to show you where to go.
From the moment you arrive, we want you to feel at home! We've reserved some parking spots close to the main entrance for you and any other visitors.You’ll be greeted with a smile, and we’d love to get to know you. Some of our pastors will be in the cafe after each service; we hope you’ll stop by to say hi!
We want you to be our guest! So help yourself to a fresh cup of coffee or tea. Hang out in the cafe before and after the services. Dress however you feel most comfortable; you’ll see everything from shorts to suits. Feel free to call our pastors by their first names. What’s important to us is that you feel welcomed, accepted, and free to worship Jesus with us.
We have a band leading songs in a modern pop/rock style. We believe worship is an offering to God in which we all participate, and that through worship we experience God’s presence in our midst. We start the service with one or two opening songs and continue with about 20 minutes of songs after the teaching.
Each week one of our pastors will give a 20 to 30 minute message. We believe that God still uses the Bible to speak truth into our lives. The messages offer practical insights and are punctuated by personal stories. We often hear great feedback on how the messages really apply to specific situations people are going through.
At the end of the service our ministry teams will be available to pray for you. Just come up to any team and share your request, big or small.
Nursery is available for children ages 6 weeks through 24 months during both services on the main level near the sanctuary. Your child is also welcome to stay with you in the service. We also have a 'cry' room available for nursing mothers or crying babies where you can see and hear what's going on in the service.
Options for Children First Service (9:00):
We have a safe, energetic, developmentally appropriate children's church program for ages 2 years through 6th grades during first service in our lower level Vineyard Kids area. The children have their own time of singing, praying together, and learning about the Bible in their designated classes.
The age groups are as follows:
Little Son Catchers:
- Toddler Class ~ 18/24 months through 36 months
- Preschool Class ~ Ages 3 through 5 years
- K-1 Class~ Kindergarten and First Graders
- Second through Fourth Grade Class
- Fifth and Sixth Grade Class
Options for Children Second Service (11:00):
Our children's church program is available for ages 2 years through 6 years during second service. This is a multi-age group and the children stay together. Ages 7 and up during second service are encouraged to participate in the adult service.
If you would like for your child to join our Vineyard Kids children's church program for either service, please follow the signs that say Vineyard Kids and register them at the check-in desk. You will receive a number that corresponds to your child's number on their name tag. If your child needs you for any reason during the service, your number will appear on the screen in the adult service to notify you.
*Every last Sunday of the month is Family Sunday where the children participate in the adult service for worship and communion, then head downstairs for their own activities in learning about the Bible.
*Children are always welcome in the adult service. If this is your first time visiting, your child is just extra attached to you for that day, or if you are just more comfortable having your child stay with you they are welcome to do so. There are brightly colored bags in the back of the sanctuary with crayons, paper and books available if your child would like to use them.

Students are a part of our regular services on Sundays, and have their own gatherings during the week. Through creative teaching, media, discussion, and interactive experiences, students gain a deeper understanding of how the story of God continues through them. Students also have the opportunity to put their faith into practice by doing service projects in the community. Merge Youth Group
meets Wednesdays at 6:30 in the Lower Level (use lower level entry doors.)
After the service is where we see the community really take shape! Stick around and meet some people; you may meet someone who loves the same things you love!
