Our services consist of music, prayer, Bible reading and a message on spiritual living from a biblical perspective, usually by Pastor Dave Weidlich. Each service is about 70 minutes. Jump in with both feet or sit back and watch for a while. We’re informal and casual. Come as you are.
We welcome you to join us as we worship God every Sunday, 10 am at 1129 Industrial Ave, in our “Upper Room,” Suite 208.
Children are with us during most of the worship service, but they have the option of leaving for Children’s Church during the message.
Our room is easily accessible by stairs or by an elevator when you use the front door. CLICK here for a map

Redwood Gospel Mission – every fourth Monday. Our church hosts the chapel service at the Redwood Gospel Mission. The Mission serves dinner to the homeless and the poor. Before dinner, they must attend a chapel service of music and a gospel message. Rudy leads the chapel service which begins at 6 p.m. and lasts an hour. You may attend to support this outreach and to show love to those who come. You can also eat dinner and talk with them afterwards. Or you can pray for this ministry. (We usually arrive around 5 to set up and play music for those who arrive early.) It’s at 101 6th Street in Santa Rosa.
Prayerwalking. You can pray. You can walk. Let’s do both together. We’ll do it again – stay tuned.
This business of starting a new church that makes a positive impact on our city is spiritual work. We cannot do it with our energy and resources alone. It takes more. We want God’s Spirit to move through us. That means prayer.
There are many ways to pray. We’re inviting you to join us in prayerwalking for one hour, Saturday, 10:00 am. We’ll start at the Vine Church office. What is prayerwalking?
Prayerwalking may look no different than walking together. Instead of just talking to one another, we include God in the conversation. We observe the houses, businesses, cars and people around us and we lift them up to God in prayer. Of course, we keep our heads up and eyes open.
Here’s a brief guide:
Getting up close to the community focuses our prayer. We sharpen our prayers by concentrating on specific homes and families. But we enlarge our praying as well, crying out for entire communities to know God’s healing presence.
