At Vineyard Central, we like to think of membership in terms of hosting: if our gatherings are parties, members are the ones who host those parties and serve the guests who come! Another way to think of membership at VC is to think of the crew of a ship. Anyone can come on board and go for a ride, but members are the ones who commit to manning the sails and stewarding the ship.
Members agree to a covenant that includes specific practices that we seek to live into as a community. Covenant is a word that speaks to the sacred nature of this commitment. We ask people to commit to our community for one year, at the end of which you can decide whether to continue that commitment.
