First Impressions exist to help people get connected first to Jesus Christ, then to the community within The Vineyard Church. We do this by being welcoming at the front door, by offering a warm cup of coffee, by supporting our Sunday Celebrations, by helping people get connected, and by serving those that are on their way into community. First Impressions is made up of five ministry teams that all focus on helping people get connected. The following is a brief description and contact information of each ministry group.
The Greeting Team exists to create an excellent first impression for people attending Vineyard. We do this by welcoming people who attend our Celebrations.
The Coffee Team exists to create a warm atmosphere where newcomers feel comfortable, where hearts are softened and where people feel rejuvenated. We will do this by providing adults, as they enter our services, a great cup of coffee, as well as filling the building with a pleasant aroma!
Coordinator: Joyce Wisemiller
Asst Coordinator: Jennifer Namenye
The Usher Team exists to support and maintain a proper atmosphere that promotes corporate worship, teaching and prayer during Vineyard’s weekend Celebrations. We do this by helping people find seats, by pointing people in the direction of classrooms and restrooms, and by attending to a variety of needs.
Welcome Center Team
The Welcome Team exists to encourage newcomers from the minute they enter the church until they have successfully attended Vineyard 201 and become a member of Team Vineyard.
Asst. Coordinator: Donnette Patterson
The Catering Team exists to serve simple, yet delicious meals, for our various ministries on a case by case basis. Team member’s work together on different aspects of serving the meal while encouraging each other and growing as disciples in Christ.
