Sunday 8:00, 9:30, 11:00am & *6:00pm
Join us this Weekend!
We’d love to have you join us this weekend for one of our five exciting and uplifting services. You’ll find hundreds of people from all over the Keys enjoying great music from our worship band, fun and engaging video and multimedia, a message from the Bible that’s simple, practical and encouraging, and, of course, free coffee and breakfast/lunch/dinner. Come and discover a relationship with God that really works.
Every weekend during the Vineyard’s adult services, we also offer an exciting time of learning and fun for kids newborn to 11 years old that includes songs, videos, and Bible-based lessons, all offered with lots of love and affection from our trained volunteer staff. Youth 12 years and older also have their own meeting at the 9:30 and 11:00 celebrations. It’s all part of our commitment to provide a loving, nurturing, clean, safe and fun atmosphere for the children where they can experience God’s love and explore a relationship with Jesus.
More than 30 years ago a handful of people launched the Vineyard Community Church with a dream of seeing people experience the love of God and the life-changing power of Jesus Christ. Today that vision lives on as hundreds of people from all walks of life come together at the Vineyard to worship God, learn about His love, and share it with our community.

Barry and Jeri Chiagouris
The year 1976 brings fond memories to my mind, because that was the year I received Jesus Christ in my life. I was visiting a good friend in the Florida Keys who shared his new found faith in Christ. After reading the Bible; I too accepted Jesus in my heart and began my journey. It was 1983 when the Pastor of our church noticed a guitar in the corner of our home and wondered if I could lead a praise and worship service. This began my calling from the Lord as a praise and worship leader and song writer. My wife Jeri and I have both served in music for over 30 years at Keys Vineyard Community Church and have been active members from the beginning of the church formation. In April of 2014 I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biblical Studies from Atlantic Coast Bible College and a Master’s Degree in Pastoral Ministries. Aside from Music Ministry responsibilities, I also facilitate a men’s weekly bible study every Monday night from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. As a recent retiree from our local water facility, I am now enjoying the blessings and opportunities in serving God along with a great staff at Keys Vineyard Community Church.

Vineyard / Convoy of Hope Feed One Campaign
Each day millions of children suffer from hunger and malnutrition. These maladies delay their development, stunt their growth, make learning difficult and can even cause death. We find that unacceptable. Ending world hunger requires holistic solutions. These solutions start with a warm bowl of food. Food is the doorway to providing a child with an education, a healthier living environment, clean water and an opportunity for a better life. $10 per month, the cost of a pizza, a movie ticket or a quick lunch feeds one child for 30 days.
Mother Teresa once said, “If you can’t feed a hundred, then just feed one.” We’ve taken her words to heart and believe that if this generation is unleashed to solve the planet’s great challenges, they will produce a whole new world.
Our hearts are easily moved by the awareness of people in need. But it is not simply enough to be moved, we must act.
