We recognize that attending a church for the first time can be an intimidating process. We are a casual church and it is important to us that you feel comfortable, so please feel free to come dressed as you are! And to make your first trip to the Vineyard Church of Ithaca a little easier, here are some things you can expect when you show up:
- Before things get started, you are invited to head in to the Cafe area and get a cup of coffee or something else to drink. (Food and drinks are allowed in the sanctuary).
- If you have kids up to 6th grade, you can sign them in for Vineyard Kids at the Vineyard Kids Information desk.
- We begin our service with a worship song, followed by a brief welcome and a short break so that you can get a refill on your coffee, grab something to eat, and meet a new person or two. Parents can also take their children to their Vineyard Kids classes during the break.
- After the break, we have a message, applying Biblical truth to everyday life, followed by about 25 minutes of singing, in which we express our love and thanks to God. Please feel free to participate or to simply sit back and listen.
