It takes a lot of gifted people working together to make services run on Sundays. If you’re wondering how you can get involved at the Vineyard, joining a ministry team is a great next step. 

 

Small Groups

God loves fellowship and community. As a triune God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are always connecting. Jesus spent much of His time on earth surrounded by a group of 12 friends. We’re no different. As people created in the image of God, we desire real relational connection but we don’t always know where to find it. Our solution? Small groups. Our small groups provide plenty of opportunities to cultivate the true and authentic friendships you crave with other people who care about Jesus.

If you have questions about Small Groups feel free to contact the appropriate person listed below:

Vineyard kids

We want to give our kids a fun and engaging Sunday experience, supplying them with plenty of opportunities to encounter Jesus! In order to do so, we need help in several different areas. Whether it’s putting together crafts, teaching a lesson, putting on a puppet show, or helping to provide a secure and safe environment, there’s a place for you to serve at Vineyard Kids.

Hospitality Teams

Our hospitality teams consist of a welcome team, ushers, and a cafe team. These are the first faces seen by guests and visitors on the weekend. The goal is to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere on Sunday mornings by keeping pots stocked with hot gourmet coffee and baskets full of freshly baked treats; by greeting and shaking hands with guests; and by making sure the environment is clean and everyone has a comfortable place to sit! 

If you have questions about the hospitality teams, or want to get involved, feel free to contact the appropriate person listed below:

Marriage mentoring

Marriage is beautiful, but it can also be hard work. Sometimes we need help from others to keep our marriages healthy and strong. If your marriage is hurting, or if you think you could benefit from peer counseling, our marriage mentoring program is a great option for you. Over a period of about 10 weeks, spouses meet weekly with a trained mentor couple to go through Dare to be Different’s powerful and effective mentorship program. For only $50 (hundreds less than professional counseling!) you and your spouse will take a marriage inventory that will guide your times together, bringing you to deeper level of love, understanding, and reconciliation with one another.

For more information on Dare to be Different and its partnership with Love & Respect, visit http://www.daretobedifferent.com/

If you and your spouse would like to be mentored, please fill out this application.

VINEYARD YOUTH

Every Wednesday night during the school year, the Vineyard Youth (6th grade through 12th grade) gather with youth leaders to experience God through worship and a relevant teaching, then split up into small groups for fellowship, prayer, and a time of learning together how to apply the teaching to their lives. Check out the Vineyard Youth facebook (Detroit Lakes) page for upcoming events, details, and more!
