If you don't receive texts from the church at all right now and would like to, fill out our digital connect card and let us know your phone number. :)
Christmas at the Vineyard
Advent & Christmas Teaching Series
starting Sunday, December 3rd
Our Advent & Christmas teaching series "Come Let Us Adore Him" begins on Sunday, December 3rd and will explore the theme of worship.
During our Sunday worship services, we will be leaning into one particular hymn this Christmas to help center us on the theme of worship during Advent. "Come Thou Long Expected Jesus" was written by John Wesley in 1744 as a Christmas carol! It harkens back to Israel’s longing for their Rescuer to come. And we join in that deep expectation especially at Christmas, as we celebrate Jesus coming as a baby, AND hope in His second coming, when He returns to make all things right and new again! Listen here!

Sunday, December 24th -- 11am
Join us at 11am on Sunday, December 24th to celebrate Christmas at the Vineyard! Kids are welcome in the service, and the family room and the cafe will be available to families as well.

After our Christmas Eve service, stay for a potluck lunch in the cafe. Bring some food to share, drop it off in the kitchen before the service, and set it out and share a meal together after.

Week of Prayer
Sunday, January 7th - Sunday, January 14th
Save the date for our week of prayer, January 7th - 14th! We are eager to come together in prayer to partner with God in what He is doing in our community and our world!
John 14:12 & 13 says “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. “
We believe that God hears and moves on our behalf as we co-labor with Him to see his Kingdom break through in the here and now! We will have opportunities to gather as the whole church to pray, AND we encourage you to commit to praying with your life group, tripod, and friends! Bring your expectation and longing and let’s see what God will do!
More details to come!
Emotionally Focused: Foundation Intensive
Fri, Feb 2nd & Sat, Feb 3rd, 2024
The Emotionally Focused: Foundation Intensive is a two-day experience that invites each person into a life on mission with God – to join Him in the work of reconciliation and restoration in all areas of life: home, work, and play. You will become aware of patterns in your life that block you from living a missional life - such as wounds, unmet needs, meanings, vows, and ways of being. Then you'll be able to process your learning through contemplation, journaling, and facilitated small groups. The goal is to begin to discover and live into your true self in Jesus! We need each other for this important and life-giving work, so come alongside others who are on the journey!
Save the dates - more details coming soon!
Sunday, February 11th
At church on Sunday, February 11th, we will all have the opportunity to sign the partnership frame to express our commitment to the Vineyard this year. If you are participating via the Livestream, look for a text message during the service and reply with your name to join in! (The partnership frame will also be available to sign in the church lobby for the next few weeks.)
Partnership Sunday is the opportunity for all of us to come together and make a fresh commitment each year to our church mission to Love Like Jesus and to Love God, Love Others and Love Yourself.
As the Partnership Commitment says, "We believe commitment to a local church is an important step in your spiritual journey: It’s our way of saying “this is who we are” and your opportunity to say “yes, I’m in!”
You can read the full commitment on our website at
csvineyard.org/partnership. With any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to church[at]csvineyard.org.
