What To Expect At a Sunday Service
Parking / Entry Door
The best place to park on a Sunday morning is on High Street. It is just a brief walk from High to the main church entrance on East Avenue. For the handicap accessible entrance, please park in lot on the south side of the church building and use the ramp leading up to the door. There is a wheelchair lift just to the left as you enter the building.
To sign in your child(ren) into their cvkids class(es), please visit our cvkids sign in table on the west wall of the lobby. A volunteer will help you. Learn more >>
We serve fresh brewed coffee each Sunday morning. Grab a cup of coffee or tea on the north wall in the lobby.
If you have any questions, want to learn more about Central Vineyard or would like to get in touch with people in your neighborhood, the connect table is the place for you. You can find us in the lobby.
Service Outline (10:00am - 11:15am approximate)
Worship with music
We sing to celebrate Jesus’ extravagant love. When we sing collectively, a unique unity is experienced that is nearly impossible to find in any other context. We believe the entire gathering serves as a choir for an audience of one: Jesus! It can be initially awkward, but tremendously rewarding. We end our worship time by breaking bread and sharing communion together.
Welcome & Announcements
A little information on what is going on and coming up in our church community.
A pastor or invited speaker will share an accessible message based on a passage from the Bible to help you relate with God.
At the end of each service we provide opportunities to respond to God. We respond by engaging in worship, and offering individualized prayer ministry. We believe that God is generous in giving us opportunities to personally experience his love.
After the service feel free to refill on coffee and talk to people at the welcome table. If you have children, please pick them up in their classrooms.
A Church For All Stages Of Life!
CVKids is Central Vineyard’s children’s ministry, a Sunday morning program for children from birth through 5th grade. All of these classes are divided by age and developmental levels so that kids progress through our curriculum with others their own age.
Middle and High School students meet regularly to learn about God, pray, worship, serve and have fun together.
Middle and High Schoolers collaborate with our pastors to discern how we will go deeper in our relationship with God and each other, and reach out together.
We endeavor to provide deeper relationships and participation for people through these groups. People often choose a group based on meeting day, time, location, ministry focus, or whether or not childcare is provided. Some people seek affinity groups, i.e. mostly married or single, while others enjoy a mix of life stages that some of our groups offer. We offer brief group descriptions to help you narrow down a group or two that you could try out.
Connecting with God and People at Central Vineyard
You’re invited to connect and grow in your own unique way as part of our community.
We like to think of connection in terms of three habits that can help you connect:
Feel free to visit the Connect Table at the back of the church during our services, or to schedule a meeting with someone on our pastoral team, regardless of how long you’ve been at Central Vineyard.
If you’re interested in meeting with a member of the pastoral team, we’d love to talk!
To schedule, please feel free to e-mail Daniel Heck.
While you’re exploring Central Vineyard, we invite you to engage with people and God, and to pay attention to the ways God might be engaging and inviting you. You might feel invited to just relax, find peace, or possibly heal. You might also find that God is inviting you to work through big questions about life and God, pray, or serve in some way.
We strive to be a community where everyone can safely and bravely engage with each other, and God.
Baptism and / or membership are two common and wonderful responses to God’s engagement with us. Ongoing rest, discernment, and prayer are also common … and wonderful.
If you’re deciding how to respond to what God is doing in your life, including but not limited to baptism and membership, we would love to meet, listen, pray, and help you discern next steps.
To set up a meeting with a member of the pastoral team, feel free e-mail Daniel Heck.
