weekend services at the Vineyard
First and foremost, we hope anyone attending our several weekend services will feel warmly welcomed! We realize that coming to a church for the first time can be a bit stressful, so we do our best to create a comfortable, casual atmosphere. We hope that regardless of your background, past church experience, or current beliefs, you will be able to relax and feel free to explore important questions about God and life. Each service lasts about 75 minutes, consisting of a time of worship through songs and a relevant message that is based on the Bible.
When you arrive …
You can expect to be warmly welcomed by our friendly Welcome Team! We have a Welcome Gift Bag for you, as well as great information about the Vineyard church. If you have kids from babies through 5th grade, you can register them at the entrance of our Kids Church wing where they will have a fabulous and safe time with our trained Kids Church volunteers! Love coffee? So do we! Feel free to hang out in our Café and enjoy free coffee and bagels before you head to the auditorium for our worship service!
At the North Jersey Vineyard, we love kids! That’s why we seek to serve families and children in every way that we possibly can — from infants through high school. We want kids of all ages to learn that God loves them and wants to be a part of every aspect of their lives. CLICK HERE to learn all about Kids Church and how you and your kids can connect with us!

“I love the North Jersey Vineyard Church! It has created a sense of belonging for me with the congregation, pastors, and our life groups. If you would like to connect to the Lord and have Him be the God of your life, then you will experience that at NJV. ”
One of our primary values is enjoying the presence of God. God is a living being that we can get to know and who wants to have a relationship with us. The Bible says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8). One of the ways that we “taste and see” is through our corporate time of worship. During our services, the worship band leads us in a contemporary, soft rock style for about 30 minutes at the beginning of the service. Our songs are sung directly to God and are more like prayers that we sing together. People often say that this worship experience helps facilitate a sense of being more connected to God and helps them encounter His presence.
Our sermons are usually delivered by our Lead Pastor. During this time, we seek to discuss relevant and practical biblical truths that can help us connect with God and navigate through some of the complexities of life. These messages usually last about 30 to 35 minutes. CLICK HERE for our “Watch & Listen” page where you can access our sermon podcasts.
Life is hard, and most of us usually come to church facing some real challenges in our lives. In response to this need, we have a trained prayer ministry team that is ready to pray one-on-one with anyone who is in need. This opportunity for ministry is provided at the conclusion of each service. We often see physical healings and significant emotional weight lifted during these prayer times.
