Our Launch Plan: follow God's lead as we meet new people, invite them to join us in the vision of launching a new church, begin forming friendships and growing together as we build toward weekly gatherings. You can read more about each of these below. If you’d like to learn more about our plan or about how you can help make this happen, send us an email.
Listening and following God's lead is the heart of prayer. We are convinced that "unless the Lord builds the house the builders labor in vain" (Psalm 127). As a result, everything we do will be bathed in listening prayer. Email or call us (207-312-9555 or 207-3129553) for more information!
Meet new people
It's all about people. We believe God intentionally connects our lives with new people. We will be meeting anyone and everyone, inviting them to know God and sharing the vision God has given us to be an authentic place for people to explore their faith and to experience God in a new way. We would love to hear from you!
Build a Launch Team-Cultivate community
We are excited about the people that God is raising up to be the church here in York county. Over the last year, we have been gathering to pray, build community, share our lives as a community, as Saltwater Vineyard. We believe that each member of our team brings an import part of the launch puzzle and together we are the full expression of the body of Christ, the church. We love being together, walking with each other through the highs and lows of life. If you are interested in being a part of this launch team, reach out! We believe that you bring something important to our mix and we will do more as team than any one of us can do alone.
Hold Preview Gatherings
To get a taste of what Saltwater Vineyard is all about, we will have monthly preview services during 2018. We will focus on inviting as many people as possible to attend, thus building momentum toward the launch of weekly services. We held our first preview service at CK Burns school in Saco in March through June. Now we have moved to Oceanwood Conference Center in Ocean Park. We will be holding preview services on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of July and August.
Launch Weekly gatherings
We will be building toward weekly services, likely in 2018. Reaching new people, welcoming them into our community, and helping them grow in their love of God and others through worship and discipleship—these are the foundational elements for the weekly services and the life of Saltwater Vineyard.
