OUR SMALL GROUPS
At Loveland Vineyard Community we are choosing to be a church that has a high value for relationship. We believe that relationships are nurtured and grow through community with one another. We value sharing REAL life together through our Small Groups and the love of Jesus that flows from us. Long and short term groups are here for the fall! Groups are where you get connected, meet people, build relationships and be community!
