Vine's mission is to connect people to Jesus Christ so that their lives may bear God's eternal fruit.
We do that through opportunities to Connect, Grow, & Bear Fruit.
As we look to Vine's future, we are committed to the work of praying, listening, asking, and dreaming - trusting that the Holy Spirit will use Vine's clergy, leadership, and community to continue building God's Kingdom in this time and place.
As we move forward, we are creating a "Dream Team" to help us with this work. This page will include updates on action items, upcoming conversations, and other ways you can participate in the work.
Are you part of Vine's community and would like to be part of the Dream Team?

Scriptural Foundations (CEB):
• Mathew 16:18
(The power of the church to withstand.)
I tell you that you are Peter.[a] And I’ll build my church on this rock. The gates of the underworld won’t be able to stand against it.
• Ephesians 2:20-22
(Christ is the cornerstone of the church. The building serves the mission of the church.)
As God’s household, you are built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. 21 The whole building is joined together in him, and it grows up into a temple that is dedicated to the Lord. 22 Christ is building you into a place where God lives through the Spirit.
• Proverbs 29:18
(Vision is essential.)
When there’s no vision, the people get out of control, but whoever obeys instruction is happy.
• Acts 1:8
(We are called to stretch, to reach, to go to new places.)
8 Rather, you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
• Luke 14:28-30
(We must be patient, careful, and diligent in the process.)
28 “If one of you wanted to build a tower, wouldn’t you first sit down and calculate the cost, to determine whether you have enough money to complete it? 29 Otherwise, when you have laid the foundation but couldn’t finish the tower, all who see it will begin to belittle you. 30 They will say, ‘Here’s the person who began construction and couldn’t complete it!’
