REAL Life GROUPS
At Loveland Vineyard Community we are choosing to be a church of Small Groups, versus a Church with Small Groups. We believe that it is in the Small Group context that real life happens. We value the Small Group process as people grow in relationship with each other and with Jesus. We choose to have short term groups of 7-12 weeks duration. Three times per year we launch a new selection of groups. You can select a group based on your interest and needs. Our Fall Series will begin the week of September 10. If you are interested in participating in one of our groups, please contact us through the contact link on this web site.

Youth learn how to pray for one another, how to share Jesus with their friends, and to serve one another and the people in their community. Friends are welcome!
There is an active and fun twenty something/young adults group that goes to concerts, hikes, paddle boards and has barbecues, restaurant meals and campfires together. Come have fun and hang out!
