Sunday Morning Jr. high (6th-8th)
– After worship each Sunday morning, the Jr. high class is dismissed to Jason’s
office for a time of teaching and discussion with amazing teachers who love and
care for our kids, who know their names, and engage them with the scripture
with an age appropriate curriculum.
Sunday Morning Sr. high (9th-12th)
– The Sr. high are always on the move, fully engaged in the adult worship
service both on the team, or worshiping down in front of the stage, serving the
children’s ministry and spending times of study and ministry each week. Every
first Sunday, our Sr. high kids join our greeting team, children’s workers
team, and ministry team in Jr. high, fully embracing the work of the kingdom. They
meet on the 2nd -4th Sundays in the youth room after
adult worship for a time of teaching, ministry, and fellowship.
6:30pm Wednesday-Counter Culture(6th-12th)
Vineyard Counter Culture – What is Counter
Culture like? It’s knowing that you do not belong to this world, but are in it
to demonstrate the kingdom in all things. It’s not avoiding people because they
are different than you, but embracing them where they are at. It’s celebrating
and embracing the Gospel every day in our lives.
We designed our Wednesday
service with these principles in mind.
When you walk into the room, you can expect music you recognize, games
you love to play on Xbox and Wii, cards being played, free hamburgers for
guests(just a buck for everyone else), and lots of people hanging out around
the couches. We play group games to start the service, followed by youth led
worship, and each week you can expect to hear the gospel message shared and
celebrated in the messages. If you are in Jr. or Sr. high, we hope you will
come and join us!
