Community „Family XT”


Things that God has prepared
In dependence on the Holy Spirit, do the things that our heavenly Father has prepared for us ...

For us, this means that God creates situations in our environment and brings us together with people for whom we can be a gift from God. Jesus mentions a few such situations. They should be an inspiration for how our faith can express itself in active love:

Visiting services
  • Visiting the sick
  • Visiting prisoners
  • Visit lonely
  • Strengthen "tired hands"

Social services
  • Give clothes
  • Feeding the hungry
  • Give drink to the thirsty
  • Taking in refugees / strangers
  • Invite the needy to a meal

Prayer services
  • Praying for holistic healing (SOZO)
  • Praying for deliverance
  • Pray for each other

Proclamation services
  • Bringing good news
  • Proclaiming the time of grace
  • Giving anxious encouragement
  • Connecting broken hearts
  • Comforting the grieving
  • Call to repentance, because the kingdom of God is within reach

Creative services

With our gifts and abilities, we can also promote community (and each other) and express our gratitude to God through this creativity.

  • Street music "Songs of hope"
  • Joint sewing projects
  • Working together (e.g. in the community garden)

A practical and good way for us to serve our neighbors is to participate in existing services that are offered in our city, for example ...


Established projects and programs

We usually meet in living rooms and take time for ...

  • personal exchange.
  • Praise and worship.
  • Study and application of biblical statements.
  • Joint actions.

We are also actively involved in the following projects and programs:

Community Garden Barabein

A community garden was created in Barabein during the Corona period (in 2021). We see it as a kind of monastery garden, among other things. Monastery gardens are rich in tradition. The spiritual community took care of a garden whose medicinal plants served poor and sick people. The motto "Ora et labora" is certainly familiar to many. The awareness of God and creation was expressed in prayer and work.

What inspires us about this model is the reference to responsibility for creation before God, which forms the basis of a benevolent, humble and forgiving attitude for the community.

You can find out more about the Community Garden here.


Worship meeting Vineyard Biberach

This is a public cross-community worship meeting of the Vineyard Biberach. It currently takes place once a month in Mettenberg. Dates and address under "current".


Partnership Sierra Leone

We have entered into a partnership with the Vineyards in Sierra Leone, through which we support communities and projects in Sierra Leone.

Sierra Leone - Friends help friends
A community of disciples who experience God love one another and partner with Christ to heal the world.
Our vision and mission

As Vineyard Sierra Leone, we want to make Jesus and his kingdom visible and accessible to people. We see ourselves as a community of followers of Jesus who experience God, love one another and, as partners of Jesus, bring salvation and healing to their surroundings.

Our mission is to establish Vineyard Churches that establish churches themselves. Each Vineyard Church does not live for itself, but seeks the welfare of the people in its environment. As an important step, we aim to establish a church in each of the 12 districts of Sierra Leone. These district Vineyards will then establish churches in their own communities.

Alpha
What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of meetings where the Christian faith, life and the question of meaning can be explored in a relaxed atmosphere. At each meeting, questions about life and the Christian faith are addressed. The thematic impulses are designed in such a way that exciting discussions can arise afterwards.

Alpha takes place all over the world and is organized in cafés, churches, universities, prisons, youth clubs, at home - wherever there are people. Everyone is welcome!

The following three elements always belong to Alpha:

  1. Every meeting begins with a joint meal.Essen-imageThe best way to get started and get to know each other.

  2. The impulses on the topics are the starting point for exciting discussions Each impulse is approx. 20 to 30 minutes long and is either held as a live lectureThema-imageor played as a video clip. The impulses during the 11 weeks at Alpha deal with the big questions of life and the Christian faith. Topics include, for example: Does life have more to offer? Who is Jesus? How can I believe? How does God lead me?

  3. Small groups are probably the most important part of Alpha. This is the place to share your own thoughts and questions on the topic in a small group.Gespraech-imageto discuss and exchange opinions. No one is forced to say anything and there is (really!) nothing you can't say or ask! It's an opportunity to hear opinions from others and share your own perspective. It's an honest, friendly and open atmosphere where you can be together.

"REMEMBER THE POOR" - With the mercy of Jesus, we turn to the lost, the poor, the outcast and the outsider. We are all needy in one way or another.
