Figuring out how to connect with a new community can be scary.  We want to help!  Here are some practical next steps to connecting beyond our Sunday morning services:

1. Meet our co-pastors.

Use the "Contact Us" tab on this website to let one of our Pastors know you'd like to meet with one of them and learn more about Life on the Vine. They'd love to meet with you and hear your story!

2. Come to a community event during the summer.

We have at least one community event per month. Some examples of our recent events include a shared meal after the service, nature walks, chess tournaments, game nights, and a trip to a nearby playground.

3. Join our church email list and follow our Facebook and Instagram pages.

Reach out to Jill Carlson, our church administrator, at [email protected] to join the email list!

4. Look into joining a House Church. 

House churches are medium-sized groups, organized by geography so that we can gather with those who live closest to us. In these groups, we welcome God's presence into our homes and neighborhoods, looking for signs of God's redemptive work in ourselves, one another, and our communities. Contact a Pastor if you'd like to learn about a house church near you. 

5. Attend a class at 9:00am before our worship service at 10:15am. 

At various times throughout the year, we offer 9am classes before our service. Some of our classes enable us to dive into Scripture together.  Other types of classes focus on contemplative prayer practices and spiritual rhythms such as:

  • Prayer of Examen
  • Lectio Divina
  • Visio Divina
  • Immanuel Journaling
  • Discernment
  • Centering Prayer
  • Breath Prayer
  • Rule of Life

6. Join a Grow Group

After spending some time getting to know us, considering asking about our Grow Groups. Grow Groups consist of four to five members who gather weekly or bi-monthly. Group members gather to share with one another about the challenges and joys they are encountering in their daily lives. Group members help one another consider what Good News God is working out in and through their lives.
