Vineyard Community Church worship gathering

By Rose Swetman

Vineyard is moving in with Trinity on April 1st and we will begin sharing space. Trinity's worship gathering will be at 9:30am and Vineyard Community Church will be at 11:00am.

Vineyard Community Church's (VCC) journey began in 1999 when Rich and Rose Swetman became the co-pastors of an existing congregation. The church was, what is commonly known as a "seeker sensitive" church, involving the congregation in outreach through simple acts of kindness to people in the community.

In 2004, we as a congregation prayerfully began to explore what it means to be a community that serves the neighborhood. As VCC began to wrestle with this question, we began to seek more meaningful ways of embodying the church outside of a Sunday morning service or through random acts of kindness.

In the same year, VCC leased its first building in Shoreline and began working to be a positive presence in the community through the creation of mission groups, partnering with non-profit organizations already at work in the community and stepping in to serve as there were needs. Since then, VCC has sought to stay to true to our mission through several different seasons and facilities. One thing has remained, we want to be followers of Jesus known for our generosity, kindness and service to others.

Today, VCC is a dynamic, multi-generational congregation that will be moving to share space and serving opportunities with Trinity Presbyterian Church. We anticipate discovering how Two Churches Serving One City will only enhance the mission of our church.
