Lancaster Vineyard is committed to forming a church community knit together by mature relationships. Our vision is to be a church where nobody stands alone. Small Groups are the primary vehicle to accomplishing this goal and a place where More Christians become Better Christians while encountering a living God and loving relationships.

    We have a number of Small Groups that meet throughout the week at various times and places throughout the community.  We invite you to stop in and visit!

    Jesus Loves the Children of the World

    Childhood is the best time to build a God-centered worldview for children. It is our goal to provide a welcoming, safe environment to train the hearts of children to do God's work and live God's Word.

    Our Check-in station (located to your left as you enter the front entrance) resembles an Airport Check-in station. New arrivals will be greeted by one of our friendly volunteers who will enter your child's information in our secure church database.  Future visits will be (self check-in) where you will simply enter your phone number to start the simple and quick process. We conduct background checks for childcare workers, and a safety team to ensure a welcoming environment for families.  

    On Sunday morning, your children are welcome to stay with you in the service or we invite them to participate in their own class.  We have classes for all ages, infants through 8th grade.  To minimize disruption to our classes, we ask that your children be checked in for 1st service between 8:45-9:15am and for 2nd service between 10:45-11:15am.

    We also offer Wednesday Night Kids Club for children in grades 1st - 5th. 

    Check-in starts at 6:45pm with the service starting at 7:00pm. Pickup will be promptly at 8:30pm.  Children will enjoy an evening of balanced activities, rotating through games, crafts, worship

  • youth ministry

    We believe that the teenagers of this church are not the "future of the church" but are part of the church now. They don't have a junior varsity Holy Spirit, they posses thee Holy Spirit. Our mission is to empower and release the teens to be agents of the Kingdom in all aspects of their lives; in church, at home, in their schools, in sports, and wherever they find themselves. The cool thing is, that when we have allowed them to step up and be the church of now, we have seen God work through them in incredible ways.  It's also our aim to reach teens who do not have Jesus on their radar and impact lost teens in our county. 

    Sunday Morning Junior High Class

    Open to Grades 6th through 8th during both services. Students will remain in the sanctuary at the beginning of the main service and be dismissed after worship. 

    Wednesday Night Youth Group

    Every Wednesday 7:00-8:30 pm and open to grades 6th through 12th. Each night from 7:00-8:00pm, we separate into a Junior High group and a High School Group. For that hour, each group has roughly 15-20 minutes of games, a 20 minute teaching, a 20 minutes spent in small groups by age and gender (ex. Junior High Girls Small Group, High School Girls Small Group, Junior High Boys Small Group and High School Guys Small Group).  At 8:00pm we gather all together for worship and conclude with a ministry time.
