SUNDAYS AT 10AM
The Vine Church Madison is a Spirit-filled family that makes disciples and plants churches among neighbors and nations through declaration and demonstration.
The proclamation of the Gospel is expressed through our intentional relationships with people who don't know Jesus. We will seek to love them and share Christ with them right where they are in our own network of relationships. Some of our current partnerships are with Elizabeth House, and Zeteo Community. For more information on how to get involved email firstname.lastname@example.org.
