Vintage Students

*Sunday at a New Time!, 4:30p
Upstairs Classrooms
Vintage Students exists to partner with families to create an environment where every student is known, cared for, and loved. Students are welcome with no prerequisite of church background or prior belief. It is a place where we encourage middle and high-schoolers to bring their faith and their doubt as they seek to make sense of who Jesus says he is. We disciple students through large group teaching, small groups, intentional relationship building, and special events.

In His Image Support Group

First Monday of every Month, 7p
3-5 Grade Room
Our society has so many ideas about what a woman's body should look like. So what happens when your body doesn't look like the ideal body type? You feel shame, you restrict, you punish yourself, and/or you seek to manipulate the body you have been given. What if you were able to love and appreciate the body God fearfully and wonderfully designed specifically for you? Our goal at In His Image is to provide women with a community of followers of Jesus who will listen to, encourage, and challenge each other in their body image and food struggles. No reading or study will be required prior to each meeting. We will just be openly discussing pressing topics around body image, food, and exercise. No RSVP necessary.

Baby Dedications

Baby dedications are an opportunity for parents to present their child before God and the church, and commit to seek after his grace and wisdom. It’s also a time for parents, to commit to model what following Jesus looks like and to know the importance of committing to a community of faith through the local church. Upcoming baby dedications are currently scheduled for June 4 & Oct 8.

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 so we can walk alongside as you investigate the claims of Jesus.” – Jordan Penley
