The Vine groups meet weekly to study God's Word, be encouraged by others and plan ways to reach out to our neighbors. We strive to connect with each other in spiritual community.


A Vine group is a group of eight to fifteen adults and their children that meet on a regular basis to glorify God, build relationships, develop leadership and motivate each other to grow in faith. It provides a safe place for meaningful discussion and motivation while encouraging relationships and spiritual growth.
