Vineyard Church HOME  |  KIDS  |  PRETEEN  |  YOUTH



The transition from elementary to middle school is tough…

So we’ve created a fun environment especially for these transition years where students can:

  • participate in gathered worship in a positive peer group.
  • experience spiritual “rites of passage” with their family.
  • bridge the 4-6 grade gap.

Our goal is to equip students with a firm foundation in Christ, challenging them to own their faith, to be set apart for Christ, and to experience God on a more personal, intimate level.

Vineyard Preteen meets on Sundays two doors down from the Maryville venue, 631 William Blount Drive, at

  • 10am
  • 11:30am

Preteen also meets at 10am at our Springbrook location.

In order to ensure the safety and security of all kids at the Vineyard, parents or guardians need to register children before they attend Preteen for the first time. You’ll probably want to plan about 10 extra minutes to complete the one-time registration form for each child.

You will receive a Family ID number along with everything you’ll need to check-in each time you attend in the future.

Students are welcomed into the classroom 15 minutes prior to services and must be checked in by a parent or guardian. Using invisible ink, we’ll mark the wrists of both you and your child.

To check your child out of class when you’re finished worshiping, please allow us to verify that your wrists match. For security reasons, we ask that parents do not enter classrooms, but remain at the door until your child is dismissed to you.
