Pastor Ernie Cramer, Director

Men's Bible Study--2nd Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m.

It is my goal to encourage men to take an active part in their home lives, the Church and the Community. As we strive to serve God, we will become better fathers, husbands and workers, both on the job and in the church. We have several activities planned this year. Please come and join us as we begin each activity with a short devotion and enjoy the blessing of fellowship.



Suzi Cramer, Director

Our goal is to encourage women to become the woman of God that He intended her to be. We accomplish this through Bible Study, our yearly Women's Retreat, being involved in our community, Women’s Refuge and in the lives of others.

God sent His Son, Jesus, to save all of us (Matthew 1:21) and it is our goal to invite, invest and include others to share the gospel of Jesus Christ so that lives can be changed. Our inspiration comes from Philippians 3:14 “ I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

Women's Ministry Committee meets 1st Sunday

of every month following the fellowship dinner.

Ladies Bible Study--2nd Tuesday of every Month at 7p.m.

Ignite Kids
Jesica Hill, Director in training
Jesica has served in Children’s Church, 
Missionettes and her excitement comes from
hearing the kids come in the church doors.
Jesica was saved right here at Vine Of Life
Church when she was 16 years old and has
served God since that day.
Jesica is excited about what God has in store for Kid’s Ignite as she serves in obedience to the Lord. Kid’s Ignite program is a fun program for the kids with a lesson intertwined with learning Scripture through music. Her desire is to reach the kids with the love of Christ and get them excited about coming to church.
Jim and Judy Hill, Directors

Judy rode the bus when she was growing up and God breathed into she and Jim’s hearts about a Bus Ministry. With excitement, they began to reach out to kids and started by bringing kids in their cars. Then God opened doors for the church to purchase a bus and the
Bus Ministry was born. Jim and Judy go out each Saturday and touch base with the parents and kids, leaving a care package for the kids.
Jim and Judy love the kids and pray for them and their families. Their desire is to Love God and serve only Him in the position where He has placed them.
If you need a ride or desire more information please call Judy @ 816-278-8803 or the church @ 816-532-8362
