Our Story

Quite simply, the Vineyard Community Church is a growing community of people desiring to live out authentic relationships with God and each other.


Our story begins in the summer of 1985. Guess jeans, Izod shirts and giant hairdos. We started off meeting in the living room of our founding pastor, Bill Jackson, with a passion for seeking God and serving people. As that first group grew and multiplied, the church began to meet at the local YMCA. Since 2006, we’ve been gathering at our facility on Craig Street.


But our story isn’t mainly about buildings and history. It’s about people – people hungry for a real encounter with the love and power of God – people longing to live out the calling of Jesus. People wanting to put flesh and blood on the truth of the Gospel. It’s about people with ideas and dreams and about the mystery that brings them together as a people called by God – a church. It’s about people encountering God and being transformed. And, it’s about those transformed people trusting God to become a community that offers transformation to the world.


No matter who you are or where you’ve been, you are welcome to discover the way of Jesus as part of our community. When you come to the Vineyard on a Sunday morning, you can expect around 30 minutes of worship through music, followed by a biblical message relevant to the here and now in your life. Join us.
