Small groups are an important part of the Lancaster Vineyard, because we believe that no one has to do life and alone. We were created to live in community, and being connected with like-minded friends improves every area of our lives. 


    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!

  • Vineyard kids

    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 is located to your left as you enter the front entrance. New arrivals will be greeted by one of our friendly volunteers who will enter your child's information in our secure church database. Once your information is entered, any further check-ins are done by simply entering your phone number in the Self Check-In station. We conduct background checks for childcare workers, and we have 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 5th 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 10:30-10:45am. Our check-in stations will close at 9:15 am for 1st service and 10:45 am for 2nd service. 

    We also offer Wednesday Night Kids Club for children in grades 1st - 5th (September through May). 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, and worship.
