Worshipping God is our highest priority as followers of Jesus. At the Vineyard we value setting aside extended times to worship God and enjoy His presence. We also believe that there is something special that happens when we come together across generations to worship.**
Join us for an evening of worship for the whole family. Young, old, single, married…you are all invited to join our Vineyard family as we worship together. Along with worship and prayer we will be asking for God’s blessing on every student (adult, youth, and child) who is returning to school this fall.
You don’t want to miss this special evening.
**In the book “Sticky Faith,” Powell, Griffin, and Crawford establish the case for moving away from exclusive age-based programming for youth discipleship. The highest impact on mature faith in both high school and college is participating in all-church worship:
The closest our research has come to that definitive silver bullet is this sticky finding: High school and college students who experience more intergenerational worship tend to have higher faith maturity. We found this to be true in our studies of both high school seniors AND college freshmen.
