Worship with Us
Welcome to Vine Congregational
United Church of Christ
Our doors are open to you, and so are our hearts. All who enter are welcome to share in worship and fellowship.
God is at work in this place, through meaningful worship, warm fellowship, and genuine acceptance. Vine offers opportunities to study and serve, to build faith and friendships.
What to expect
We gather to worship every Sunday morning at 10:30 am. Our typical worship service lasts about an hour. A bulletin is provided with an order of service so that you may follow along and participate in all the elements of our worship service. During the service, we pray, sing, share moments of silent meditation, and hear scripture.
Vine offers a traditional service that incorporates hymns from the New Century Hymnal. The choir is led by our Chancel Choir Director and our organist provides the prelude and postlude each week. Our service periodically includes music our Joyful Noise Handbell Choir.
We welcome participation by all in the worship service; there are opportunities to be scripture readers, ushers, communion servers, music/poetry, and greeters.

We believe that all are welcome in worship and encourage families to worship together.
Children’s Activity Bags are available which provide a variety of hands-on activities for busy hands while still participating in worship.
Children’s Message is part of our regular worship service where the children are invited to the front of the sanctuary to hear a message specifically for them.
Nursery Care is available during worship service and is staffed by our Nursery Ministry Team. Our nursery provides a safe and comfortable environment for newborns through kindergarten.
Feel free to wear whatever you are comfortable wearing. Some people come dressed in their Sunday best and some wear jeans and a t-shirt. We encourage you to come the way that you feel most comfortable. Whatever you wear, you're welcome here.
We celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month, and on other special occasions. Our communion elements consist of a simple table of gluten-free bread and grape juice. All who seek Jesus are invited to the table.
After each worship service, the Fellowship Hall is open for fellowship and refreshment. We invite you to stick around for an inter-generational social gathering for coffee, cookies, and conversation. Strike up a conversation and make some new friends.
Music is a very important element in the life and worship of Vine. Our wonderful Chancel Choir sings a wide range of music during the Sunday morning worship services. This choir rehearses every Sunday Morning at 9:15 am from September to May.
There is no audition for the choir. Singing experience is welcome, but not required, and participants do not need to be able to read music.
