Featured Events – Downtown

November/December 2021

Life Class: Singleness, Dating, & Marriage

Sunday, December 5, 7p
Vintage Downtown 3-5 Grade Room
At this Life Class we'll be asking, "How does the gospel help us navigate romantic relationships?" More than telling us what to do and not to do, the gospel helps us understand the proper role of romance in our lives and leads us in glorifying God through singleness, dating, and marriage. We'll touch on legitimate issues like how to think about dating apps and why more couples should be hanging out with more single folks, and we'll end with open Q&A. This Life Class will be taught by our community groups pastor, Eric Spivey. No RSVP required.

Embrace Grace Information Meeting

Monday, December 6, 7p
Zoom
Embrace Grace is a ministry to help women walking through the unsteady season of unexpected pregnancies. Through members of the local church, we come alongside these women to remind them they are seen, loved, welcomed, and supported. We walk with these women for an intentional twelve week season leading up to their pregnancy. The end of the 12 weeks culminates with a giant celebratory baby shower. If you are interested in learning more or getting involved, please email embracegrace@vintagenc.com to receive the zoom link for this informative call on December 6.

Join for the most festive night of the year as we gather as one church from multiple locations.

Vintage Church is for you.

If you’ve been burned by the church, don’t trust it, don’t like it, or just plain don’t believe the claims Jesus makes, this church is for you. If you are curious, just investigating, or wondering whether Jesus is who he says he is in the Bible, this church is for you. If you’re a follower of his and want to share his love with this city and beyond, this church is for you. 

We recognize that belief is hard and that it is worth acknowledging and wrestling with the questions, doubts, objections and skepticism around the Christian faith. At Vintage, we welcome doubters and skeptics to process their doubts and beliefs with the recognition that it is not sufficient to hold doubts or beliefs just because we inherited them. If you are interested in processing your doubts and beliefs, or exploring Christianity, I would love for you to email me at jordan.penley@vintagenc.com so we can walk alongside as you investigate the claims of Jesus.” – Jordan Penley
