Sunday AM @ The Vine
Relevant Worship (Our Sunday Morning Gathering@ 9am and 11am)
Our Worship (singing) to God expresses our heart of gratitude, adoration and love for God as well as our desire to be different. The music allows each person to enter in as they are comfortable and engage God. People are encouraged to share with God what is on their heart and encourage God’s work in their lives.
Messages with Meaning (Our Sunday Morning Gathering@ 9am and 11am)
Our Sermons are designed to communicate spiritual concepts in real life ways. The sermons are not only for Sunday inspiration, but show us how God makes a difference each day of the week. People are encouraged to learn, grow, and develop in spiritual insights to a point where God is vital everyday.
Birth – 3-years-old
Children are taught about life with God in age appropriate lessons in a secure and loving environment. Our workers are screened and well-trained in shepherding the children. Check out our Children’s Ministry, every Sunday morning at 10 AM to provide your children with a faith foundation upon which they can build for a lifetime.
Pre-K through 6th grade
At 10AM, children worship together, through songs, prayer, Scripture memory and object lessons. Many of our children comprise our Kids Worship Team, serving by singing, playing an instrument, reading Scripture or praying. After the Opening Program of worship, children go to their age-appropriate classes to further study the Bible lesson, work on a craft and engage in other small group activities.
Student Ministry: Grades 6-12

Our young adults, ages 18-25 meet in the youth room every Sunday night at 8PM for in-depth Bible study, as well as food and games.
Other Ministry Opportunities @ The Vine
Growth Group Ministry
A variety of small groups meet the week. Groups include mother of preschoolers, women, men, young marrieds, and parents as well as other topical studies. With most ages and stages represented in our small groups, people connect easily with others and enjoy this time together. These groups care for one another through kindness and prayer. Discussions also allow people to connect with God. For more information visit the Growth Group page.
Our church does a number of different activities to show people that God still loves and cares for them and has a purpose for every life. We enjoy participating in such community events as the Fourth of July Community Service, Fourth of July Parade, Christmas tree Lighting, and The Fall Festival. We sense that the Lancaster/Depew communities are some of the best communities in Western New York. We desire to come along side our community, schools, and families to provide a vibrant spiritual component to our great community.
We have many opportunities to gather with other believers in corporate prayer together. We encourage you to join us in the prayer room every Sunday before church, at 9AM to cover the service in prayer, as well as spend time in worship through prayer together.
Discipleship groups meet once a week. A discipleship coach works alongside one or two other people, working through the Discipleship Training material by Dr. Charles Lake. This is a program for Christians who want to further their walk with God. We also have opportunities for new Christians through the Alpha program, as well as advanced discipleship for those who are interested.
