Small Groups


Small Groups

We believe that meeting regularly in small groups is a critical part of pursuing spiritual growth and transformation.  We're not created to walk the spiritual journey alone or with mere acquaintances.  Deepening relationships with encouragement, challenge, and support are a wonderful gift from God that we all need in order to continue to be spiritually alive and thriving.

Small groups provide an opportunity for us to get to know one another personally, to spend time talking at length about the things of God, to pray for one another, and to experience God’s ministry through others.

Small groups at the Vineyard promote and encourage:

  • A personal relationship with Jesus Christ and a commitment to share in His ministry
  • Love and service to those inside and outside the church
  • Connection to the Vineyard
  • Regular interaction with scripture

Please contact  for help finding a group, or see below for a list of groups currently meeting.
