Diner Church at Silver Diner -Merrifield/Mosaic

Vine church meets at the Silver Diner each Wednesday (beginning March 9) from 6-7:30PM for “Diner Church.” We believe something sacred and special happens when we break bread at a table together.

FAQ:

  1. What happens at Diner Church?
    Think of a good dinner party with a spiritual twist. We gather at tables with old & new friends to enjoy dinner, laughter, and conversation. While we eat, one of Vine’s pastors/leaders will share a brief scripture/thought and invite the table to conversation. You can engage as much or as little as you would like. Communion is offered and we pray together.

  2. Do we pay for our own meal?
    Yes. The Vine provides some appetizers – but otherwise each guest orders from Silver Diner’s extensive menu and manages their own check. (Can’t afford dinner? Let the pastor know. We can help.)

  3. Can children come?
    Right now, Diner Church is for adults.

  4. Why Diner Church?
    Christians in the early church gathered together around a meal, telling the story of Jesus’ last supper, breaking bread, and sharing the cup. Ritualized meals have been practiced by a multitude of denominations throughout the centuries as a form of worship.

  5. What faith or denomination is the Vine?
    The Vine welcomes people of all ages, races, and experiences. All are welcome at the Vine – and membership is not required to participate in any of Vine’s ministries. Vine’s clergy and theology are United Methodist.

  6. Do I need to be a member of the Vine?
    Nope. Come and see!

  7. Do I need to commit to coming every week?
    Nope. Come whenever you can!

  8. Can we invite friends?
    Yes please! Diner Church is for everybody.
