At CAREFREE VINEYARD CHURCH our mission is to become people who “simply follow Jesus” every day of our lives: to live in relationship with him and join in his mission – to be loved by God and to let that love spill over on to the people around us.
Religion is complicated and controlling. It’s about black and white rules, beliefs, doing the “right” thing; avoiding the “wrong” thing; trying really hard.
Jesus invites us to something more: relationship and abundant life.
Hear his words in Matthew 11:28-30: “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Join us on the journey as we seek to simply follow.

Spiritual formation includes intentional Christian practices —
both ancient and contemporary —
that lead to spiritual maturity and Christ-likeness.
At CVC, we place a high value on spiritual formation, on intentionally allowing the Lord access to every part of our hearts. This is a life-long process and there are many tools to be used in this pursuit. Some of the tools are personal -- silence; solitude; contemplative prayer; allowing time to simply BE with Jesus. Other tools are used in the context of community -- LifeGroups focused specifically on formational topics; spiritual direction; inner healing prayer; and clearness committees.
