Our church represents so much more than a place to meet on Sunday mornings. Small Groups meet throughout the week and our programs include specific women & men’s fellowship groups, activities, retreats, children’s ministry (with Sunday school for toddlers through middle school). But most of all, VCF Lansing is a community of people & faith where we share a common, central faith in Jesus Christ with a love for God and a desire to grow spiritually that we might more effectively serve Him.
What’s a Sunday Morning Like?
Please feel free to dress casually. At 10 AM, many people are talking with friends, enjoying a cup of coffee. Kids are playing. Some people are sitting quietly waiting for the service to begin. We start with worship music. The worship team will have a keyboard, 2-3 vocalists, 1-2 guitars, bass, drums, etc. Sometimes worship is fast and vibrant, other times it is more introspective. Always, the focus is to draw us closer to God, our Creator and Redeemer.
Around 10:30 AM, the music ends, and we have a time for prayer, announcements, and releasing the kids to Sunday school. The pastor will speak for about 30 minutes (informally- no fancy podium, and definitely no robes!). We’ll close with prayer, a song, and ministry time is available if you need specific prayer. Service is usually over by 11:30 AM, but people often hang around talking for a while after the service. Coffee, tea & snacks are available before & after the service.
At Vineyard, in addition to discovering more at our Sunday service, we can help you in your searching and questioning. You can connect with someone from the Vineyard to help you work though some of your tough questions. A variety of resources are available, from books, tapes and videos to a variety of small group activities. But in the end, discovering who God is, and who we are in relationship to God, is the result of developing a personal relationship with Christ.
