At the Vineyard we like to keep things simple and non-religious. We like to put the cookies on the bottom shelf and make the Bible accessible for everyone. Below are some of the learning opportunities that we regularly offer.
If you started attending the Grove City Vineyard in the last three months, our pastors would love an opportunity to meet you! On the months with a fifth Sunday, we have our Pizza with the Pastors event directly following our 11 AM service. Spend some time with our pastors, learn about our church, and enjoy pizza together in rooms 108/109, in the back hallway directly behind the auditorium.
Discipleship Training is often referred to simply as DT. Regardless if you are a new believer or a seasoned student of the Bible, everyone begins at DT 100, the first of four levels of discipleship. DT 100 focuses on the basic concepts and disciplines of being a follower of Jesus. DT 200 takes things a bit deeper with theology and spiritual gifts. DT 300 is more personal, how God made you wonderfully unique. Armed with all you have gained, DT 400 takes ministry to the streets.

A healthy relationship is built on a solid spiritual foundation. If you are thinking about getting married, your marriage could use a refresher or you are single and want to know what God wants for you in a relationship? Then 2=1 is the class for you. This class will give you tools and help answer some of the questions you may have about your relationship or the relationship that you desire. This class is also required if you plan on being married by a Vineyard Pastor.
If you haven’t yet been baptized, we would love the opportunity to help. At the Grove City Vineyard, we do ask that you are at least 12 years of age and attend 2 required meetings beforehand. Plan to come to the first meeting, even if you just have questions about baptism. It’s our prayer that everyone gets the chance to explore baptism and make an informed decision.
The Bible says in Acts 2:38 “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
Prayer Ministry Training will teach you what the Bible says about the Kingdom of God and how to experience "on earth as it is in heaven". You will learn how to more fully experience God in your own life, pray effectively for others and see God move in their lives.
New Leader Training, also referred to as NLT is a one-time class for anyone in the church who has a heart for home groups and is open to the possibility of leading a group down the road. Even if you don’t think you’re ready to help lead a group, this is a great training to attend if you’d like to better understand our home group ministry and grow as a leader.
