Did We Find the Vineyard or Did the Vineyard Find Us?

Some of you might be curious as to how we came to be in the Vineyard family. It is a story of God’s pursuit of us, even when we did not know we were being pursued or were looking to be pursued. It is such a beautiful story, not because of us, but because it is about the ways God […]

What’s Better Than a Gym Membership?

If you are like many Americans, after a long day at work or school you drag yourself home and change your clothes and head off to the gym or fitness center to work out.

Single-Minded Focus

It is that time of year again. The first day of spring is a few days away and in some areas of the country daffodils are already blooming.

Trust Even When You Cannot Understand

Today you may be facing a situation that you just do not understand. You find yourself wondering, “What in the world is going on?” Maybe you are even asking, “God, why is this happening?” and “God, when will it end?” It is easy to trust God when He answers our prayers right away but often not so easy when He […]

Where Are You Planted?

As you think about springtime (and yes, spring is right around the corner!) and what flowers you will be planting, and whether or not you need to fertilize the soil to maximize the beauty of the flowers, we ask you… Where are you planted, in good soil or bad soil? “The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will […]

Today’s Supply of Bread

We are a society that likes to stockpile supplies. Why else do many of us have five loaves of bread in the freezer or enough peanut butter in the pantry for the next six months?
