WELCOME TO THE VINE
A UNITED METHODIST FAITH COMMUNITY
a place where you can connect
Let’s talk together of a time when we will share a feast
where pride and power kneel to serve the lonely and the least
and joy will set the table as we join our hands to pray,
singing welcome, welcome to this place
you’re invited to come and know God’s grace,
all are welcome, the love of God to share
’cause all of us are welcome here,
all are welcome in this place.
(Words by Laurie Zelman and Mark Miller, 2007)

OUR MISSION AND VISION
Connect with God, Others and the Needs of the World
See our missions for 2021 below
GROW DEEPER IN DISCIPLESHIP
We are not called to only grow in numbers. Being a disiciple is a journey of growing deeper in our faith. This year we hope to offer small groups to hold one another in love, accountability and growth.
BEING A "MULTI" CHURCH
God gives a vision in Revelation 7:9 of the church being a great gathering of diverse peoples. We hope to become a MULTI cultural, racial, ethnic, gender identity, ability...church. We are not there yet. But we are working on it. The Vine Leadership Team is actively engaged in a multi ethnic study and will be bringing to the entire congregation soon.
Our campus is located in the heart of Plaza Midwood and we LOVE that we are nestled in the midst of such life.
To be good stewards and continue being a church that is focused on mission and ministry, we are currently working with Wesley Community Development Corp. to help us move through a building re-development. Stay tuned. It is going to be awesome!
Tend the vine
Our giving is an expression of our faithfulness and our discipleship. We are reminded that we we have is God's and God has called us to be good stewards. We invite you to tend and care for The Vine.
