Life Groups are a vital expression of church life at the Vineyard. Our church structure is different from the traditional pastorally centered church whereby we consider the life group leaders and members as the first line of pastoral care. We take our cue from Ephesians 4:11-12 that apostles, evangelists, preachers, pastors and teachers were given to the church for the “perfecting and full equipping of the saints, that they should do the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church).” (Amplified version)
We believe that meeting in the life group format compliments the larger celebration services and helps to facilitate genuine community, committed discipleship, and effective ministry thereby fulfilling the command of Jesus to go into the world and make disciples.
How do you get involved with Life Group Ministry at the Vineyard? Group listings will be available below one month in advance. If you find one that interests you give the facilitator a call to let them know you are interested or if you aren’t sure what might be a good match for you, call the office (207.854.8339) and they will be happy to help with your search.
