Visiting Us at Christ the King Vineyard
Visiting a church can be any number of experiences. We really want you to feel at home with us, because church needs to be the place where you can be yourself. No masks. No perfect kids. No one to impress. Grab some coffee with us, and join in what feels comfortable to you.
Here’s what it looks like when you come the first time.
1. Park Anywhere
When you see our brick building and enter off either Lorain Rd., Charles Rd. or Barton Rd., you can park anywhere. We have disability parking, and otherwise there are no assigned spots. Alongside the building, behind, whatever’s convenient. Our main entrance is under the covered drive, but any door will take you inside.
2. Come on Inside
Through the main doors under the covered entrance, you will find a friendly face checking temperatures, and providing sanitizer and a free mask if you need one. We are asking everyone who attends our in person service to wear a mask the whole time they are in the building. We aren’t fearful, but feel like keeping people safe to the best of our ability is the loving thing to do!
Bring the Kids!
We put a lot of care into providing age-appropriate programming for our kids, and all of our children’s ministry volunteers undergo a thorough background check.
While we are waiting on doing in person Kids Ministry classes, we are making our services fun and engaging for the kids with a special kids’ song and lesson right in the service! While parents are listening to the sermon, there will be crayons, and activity pages that reinforce the kids message and keep their attention. Feel free to bring them some snacks from home and don’t worry if they make a little noise. It’s their church too!Learn About Kids Ministries →
3. Stop by the Welcome Center
If you have time to stop by our Welcome Center booth before you head up the stairs or access elevator to the sanctuary, please let us say hello and give you a small welcome gift as a first-time visitor. This is the best place to get information and begin to find out how you can get connected.
4. Worship With Us (10:00am)
When we get together as a community, we love to celebrate with music. Sometimes we do this with joy and excitement. Sometimes we do it with heavy hearts. We do it together, because we believe singing to God is one of the most authentic ways we can connect.
After a few songs, one of our pastors or a guest speaker will teach a message, which is like a conversation starter for our community for the week. Usually there’s a lot of storytelling, some decent jokes, and a message of hope and grace for all of us.
Finally, we’ll we’ll spend a little more time worshipping with music and praying quietly to the side for anyone who wants prayer.Preview Our Worship →
How Do I Get Connected?
We’re excited to have you visit, and if you feel any leading to keep hanging out, we want you to be connected. Here’s what that looks like.
Does CTK Do?
All of us are called to and created for ministry. Some of it’s in our daily lives, and some of it we do together. See where we put faith to practice.
How Can I Join
a Small Group?
Church happens on more than Sundays. Being part of a community is about sharing life together, and we invite you to share life with us.
Beliefs are important because our convictions shape how we live. What we believe and how we live is ultimately determined by what we love.
