Semester Small Groups (SSG) are Vineyard Church’s groups of 12 or so people who get together each week for a semester to learn about the Bible, grow, and have fun together. It’s a great way to meet new people while growing in your faith. Ongoing Small Groups (OSG) are groups that have decided to stick together after the semester has ended. You can join one of these groups at any time, however contact the leader before you visit. Common Interest Groups (CIG) are groups like our car group, motorcycle group, softball, firearms, yoga, etc. These groups exist to reach those people that wouldn’t normally come to a weekend service or Bible study. Discipleship Classes are larger groups that typically meet at our North Campus. Heavier in content, these groups seek not only to inform you, but transform you. Support Ministries are groups of various sizes that provide specialized care and encouragement for life’s emotional, spiritual and physical challenges. Women’s Ministries are represented by this logo

Missions

Missions In Mark 16 the Bible says, “And he (Jesus) told them, Go into all of the world and preach the Good News to everyone.” It is our goal to share the truth of the Bible and Jesus Christ as savior to a lost world. We are currently working in three countries: Ecuador, Haiti, and Ethiopia. We are also pursuing Palestine/West Bank for mission activities. We conduct our mission work by partnering with Vineyard churches locally and in specific countries to start and support a Vineyard church planting movement. We have annual mission trips to each of the countries where we are working. If you are interested in helping with missions or going on a mission trip, please contact Tim Dykes at 816.734.8100 or tdykes@vineyardkcnorth.com.
