What to Expect



We know.  Visiting a church for the first time can be a scary experience. That being said, we find that knowing what to expect can make things a little easier.

On most Sundays, our services are broken into three main parts:  some music, a message and a time to respond.


Some call it praise, some call it worship, some call them hymns, psalms, or spiritual songs.  Whatever you call it, we do it each week.  They are all about God and most of them are sung to God.  We believe He likes our voices, having made them and all.  But don’t worry, the singing part is optional, so jump in at your own pace.


Every week  we spend around 30-40 minutes discussing, listening to, and learning about the Bible.  We have this crazy belief that it is the primary way that God speaks to Mankind to this day.  Now, for some of you, learning about the Bible might sound boring.   While we can’t promise you will agree with everything we say, we can promise you that you won’t be bored.  Try it and you’ll like it.


We believe so strongly in what God teaches us through the Bible, that we dedicate some time every week to respond.  We typically spend some time in prayer and personal reflection.  We even have people available to pray with you, if you are open to that.  During this time, we typically invite people to give their tithes and offerings. Just so we are clear, giving is intended for people who call The Vine their church home, not our guests. So please don’t feel obligated.


We would love it if you would join us this Sunday! 11am, at 7750 21st Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98117 (cross st. 80th Ave NW)
