Who are we? Vernon Park Church of God consists of a wide range of people, from all ages and different backgrounds. Whoever you are you are assured a very warm welcome at VPCOG. If you would like, take a minute to find out what we believe and why we exist.
When to arrive? If it’s your first time then it’s probably best to arrive around 10:35am to our Worship Services. Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable. We will dress in many different ways, from business casual and we encourage everyone to dress as they feel comfortable.
What to expect? For some people going anywhere for the first time can be a bit of an uncertain experience. To help avoid any worries here’s a quick summary of what you can expect at Vernon Park.
For visitors who have young children, their first stop is checking the little ones in with our wonderful Children’s Ministry. After placing the little ones in such capable hands, you can take the elevator right up to the Sanctuary. Have one of our ushers show you to your seat, and it will be easy to feel welcomed as VPCOG members spend a few minutes getting to know each other and catching up on life’s latest happenings. We will then transition to a time of singing where a worship leader will lead everyone in a few songs. Then, our pastor will get up and discuss a specific area of the Bible. It is our goal to understand the Bible as it was written and use it as the tool to transform our lives and our home. We will finish with the benediction and processional before we will take off to a new week and all of the adventures that it will bring.
Is it just Sundays? Absolutely not! God is not something that we just do or talk about on Sunday mornings. We believe our spiritual life is an integral part of everything we do from work to family. Therefore, the lifeblood of our church are our Groups that meet throughout the week for Bible study, prayer, accountability, choir and service. Stop by for a visit soon, we would love for you to visit!
