New to the Vineyard? Welcome!

Are you new to our community? Let us know by filling out a Welcome Card and we'll get in touch with you! This is the best way to get connected at our church and to let us know how we can best serve you.


If you think of Vineyard as your church home, giving regularly is a way to be a part of the work we’re doing in and outside of our church. We love that we get to play a part in the generosity God extends to others through our benevolence fund, Easter giveaway, Sunday celebrations, ministry of presence, and more. You made it happen through your prayers, service, and financial gifts!

September Board Meeting Notes

A summary of September's board meeting is below. The next church board meeting is on October 29th. You can email the board at a2vineyardboard@annarborvineyard.org. If you may be interested in joining the church board next year, please speak with Pastor Donnell.

  • Donnell presented his key priorities for the next few months: 18-month vision, retention & growth, and integrating members in to leadership. The vision team will finalize their initial assignment in the next month and pass their work off to the staff to turn the vision into a strategic plan. Donnell will present his plans for leadership integration and retention/growth at the October 29 board meeting.
  • Good news we are out of default! We are moving forward in mortgage negotiations with two banks.
  • We have several renters either in negotiations or renting our space, including a new daycare. We spent a while at this meeting negotiating compassionate but boundary-full early lease termination terms for our current daycare renter (which have since been accepted).
  • We formally acknowledge Sue Chi for her work on our mortgage and finance team.
  • We approved a quote to turn our nonfunctional door into a functional window. We formally acknowledge Tyrone Kelsey for his work on making this dream a reality.
  • A Pastoral Evaluation process started over the summer is still underway.
  • We are in need of several more board members.
