We do church where people do life … at the university … at the business office … at Starbucks … at someone’s home.
We share a meal together … We worship together … We have a conversation about the scriptures … We receive some prayer … We talk about loving our neighbors
We see ourselves as those ‘sent’ to be missional [missionaries] to our communities / neighborhood / city.
Our model is Acts 2:38-39 a simple / organic way of doing faith.
We look to multiply – where as traditional churches look to simply add – we look to multiply. The 2’s become ‘4’s the 4’s become 8’s.
By keeping it very simple – every actually gets to play!

This Summer, we will be taking some time at Friday Night Home Group to share our God stories with one another.
In the Book of Acts, nearly every recorded evangelistic conversation began with “what Jesus did in my life”. As we are exploring how the early church did things, we have the opportunity to try out one of their primary methods. Every God story is a miracle that will increase our faith and hope.
Sharing our God Stories will also give us the opportunity to understand one another better, and to gain futher insight into everyone’s strengths and dreams.
Our volunteers so far for this Summer are:
Friday June 1–Wilburn
Friday, June 8–Crystal
Friday, June 15–Liza
Friday, June 29–Donna
Friday, July 6–Michelle
Friday, July 13–Jon & Lauren
Friday, July 20–No Home Group
Friday, July 27–Carole
Friday, August 3–Marjorie
If you are interested in sharing your God story, please let Tim know.
Friday Night Home Group meets at the Truesdales. Snacks at 7, and Worship starts at 7:30.
Need more information, including directions to the Truesdale’s: send a note here.

Kids don’t come with Instruction Manuals! And we recognize that of all the jobs we are given in our lifetimes, raising the next generation is our biggest assignment! Our community’s kids will have much bigger and more complicated assignments than we could even imagine.
When and where do you get a breather to talk about your parenting job in a lighthearted way with people who understand?
In the hustle and bustle of life, do you need a spot to stop and share your victories and shortcomings in a safe and supportive setting?
This is a Small Group that will focus on Parenting, but it is open to Grandparents, Foster Parents, Encouragers, Prayers, and really everyone who is committed to raising the next generation to be even stronger than we are in their love for God and for one another.
It is sponsored by the Raytown Vineyard Church, but it is for anyone who wants to give a boost to the next generation by investing in our community’s kids and grandkids.
Still not sure about it?
Check out the “Come and See” event on Friday, September 9 at the Truesdale Home. We will kick off at 7 with Snacks, and will start the program at 7:30. See if this is something worth spending 2 nights a month doing. No commitments–just check it out. And by the way, feel free to bring the kids!

Ever heard of Bear Grylls? He is the host–and subject–of the Discovery Channel’s wildly popular show called Man vs. Wild.
Why would an apparently self-sufficient man like Bear Grylls do Alpha? (To see a short clip, click here.)
Isn’t Christianity a crutch for the weak?
Does the Christian faith have anything at all to say about the complexities of today’s world?
Starting on Thursday, September 10 at 6 PM, we are partnering with other area churches to provide you with the opportunity to catch dinner and a movie with the Alpha Course. You will get to ask any question you have ever wanted to ask in a safe environment.
Bear Grylls did it. Now, you can too. (By the way, fire starting skills are not required to take Alpha.)

We aren’t always a serious bunch. Around here, we like to point out that “Snack Ministry” is a signifcant part of any Raytown Vineyard Church event. We believe that when we gather around to share a snack–or a meal–we have a great opportunity to celebrate life together.
Come and experience some genuine relationships with us. Chocolate is optional.
