The Vineyard is where growth happens. We chose the name because we want to remain connected as individuals and grow in our relationship with God as a church family. When we abide, or remain connected to Him and His words abide in us, we see transformation and renewal in us and among us. We change. We make progress. We grow. We bear fruit. As Jesus says in John 15:5, “I am the Vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit.”
Just like a viticulturist tends to their grape vines and prunes them, so does God with us. He prunes our habits and attitudes for more fruitful, godly behavior. He produces “the fruit of the Spirit” in us, fruit like “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control” (Galatians 5:22-23). Pruning is a vital part of growing healthy grapevines.
Each section of The Vineyard is connected to the vine and branches theme. We hope you find this newsletter inspirational, informational, and insightful. May God use it to promote His Word remaining in us as we remain connected to Him.
