V.I.N.E stands for Victory In Nurturing Environments.
We believe life is more fulfilling when it is lived in community with other people, in various stages of life, who are helping each other grow closer to Jesus, the true Vine.
These small group studies include a variety of topics and interests. Groups meet in host homes for six to 12 weeks, and are designed to allow people to grow in their faith and connect with others in a non-judgmental, comfortable environment.
Anyone can join a V.I.N.E group, whether you are a member of this church, another church or no church. If you are interested in growing closer to Jesus and meeting some amazing new friends, we’ve got a place for you!

After taking the 40-question assessment, you'll learn a simple framework that will instantly improve your communication. And you'll see how advice from the apostle Paul thousands of years ago may have held the secret all along.

Co-Ed Bible Study
Mondays, 6:30PM Begins February 10th
Facilitator/Host: Jared & Caitlin Heath
Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts — it’s falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same.

Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness. Lysa TerKeurst understands this deeply. But she’s also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God.
