Come And Hang Out
Our community welcomes all visitors with no strings attached. Come exactly as you are. We will not pressure you or force you into anything when you walk through the door. We won't lay any expectations upon you.
We also won’t ignore you! We are a deeply loving and friendly bunch, and we long to see everyone feel loved and known deeply. We understand that often times, you must feel like you "belong" before you feel like you can "believe".
If after a morning together you do not like what you see, no hard feelings! We part as friends with an appreciation that you spent some time with us. But if you do see yourself wanting to connect and go deeper with RCV, we have lots of ways you can do that!
Seed, Ministry Teams, and Small Groups
Once a month (or as needed), our pastors Scott and Susan Tjernagel host SEED, an orientation to our Vineyard community. Seed is an opportunity to discover who the Vineyard is, what our values and visions are, how we implement those values and visions, and how you can get more involved in the life-cycle of the community. Again, there is no pressure.
Also, we love to try and get everyone in the community involved in serving and using their gifts to bless each other. Maybe that means you have a gift for worship or teaching children. Or maybe God has gifted you with an amazing passion for hospitality, or perhaps you deeply care about social justice and outreach to the city of New Braunfels or one of the surrounding communities. Whatever it is, we want to encourage and empower you to faithfully use those gifts within one of our MINISTRY TEAMS as a blessing to RCV and to the entire community of New Braunfels.
We are also a community that LOVES doing life together. And the way we try to encourage that is through organic, life-giving SMALL GROUPS (or HOME GROUPS). We want the body of Christ to get together and do life together as much as possible, and our small groups are a very practical way that we can learn, worship, encourage, grow, share, struggle, and put our faith into practice together.
