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.
New V.I.N.E groups will be opening up this August. If you are interested in growing closer to Jesus and meeting some amazing new friends, we’ve got a place for you!
Contact the church for more information.
SACRED SECRETS by Beth Moore
Mondays, 10:30AM Begins August 26th
Facilitator/Host: Barbara Kevan & Avonda Casey
Sacred Secrets is a 6-session study from Beth Moore that explores the theology of secrets. Secrets can be good or harmful. Some need forgiveness, and some should be kept between you and God. While Sacred Secrets is lighter than Beth's typical Bible studies, it does not lack richness or quality.
WHO MOVED MY PULPIT by Thom Rainer
Mondays, 6:30PM Begins September 9th
Facilitator/Host: Pete Torres & Dawn Jenkins
Who Moved My Pulpit? may not be the exact question you’re asking. But you’re certainly asking questions about change in the church—where it’s coming from, why it’s happening, and how you’re supposed to hang on and follow God through it—even get out ahead of it so your church is faithfully meeting its timeless calling and serving the new opportunities of this age.
FORGOTTEN GOD by Francis Chan
Tuesdays, 6:00PM Begins September 3rd
Facilitator/Host: Jared & Caitlin Heath
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We pray in the name of all three, but how often do we live with an awareness of only the first two? As Jesus ascended into heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit—the Helper—so that we could be true and living witnesses for Christ. Unfortunately, today's church has admired the gift but neglected to open it. Breakthrough author Francis Chan rips away paper and bows to get at the true source of the church's power—the Holy Spirit.
IT’S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THIS WAY by Lisa TerKeurst
Tuesdays, 10:30AM Begins September 10th
Facilitator/Host: Sheila Sapp & Barbara Walters
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.
LIES WOMEN BELIEVE by Nancy D. Wolgemuth
Wednesdays, 5:30PM Begins September 4th
Facilitator/Host: Lisa Palmer & Paula Lower
Satan is the master deceiver; his lies are endless. And the lies Christian women believe are at the root of most of their struggles. In this bestseller, Lies Women Believe, Nancy exposes those areas of deception most commonly believed by Christian women—lies about God, sin, priorities, marriage and family, emotions, and more. She then sheds light on how we can be delivered from bondage and set free to walk in God's grace, forgiveness, and abundant life. Nancy offers the most effective weapon to counter and overcome Satan's deceptions: God's truth!
BECOMING A CONTAGIOUS CHRISTIAN
Thursdays, 7:00PM Begins September 5th
