Westcott site

About Us

The Vineyard Church is one church meeting in multiple locations, and the Westcott Site is the growing community located in the Westcott and Syracuse University neighborhood. Our services are every Sunday at 10:30am where we have live worship and the same message from the Syracuse site done via video with John Elmer, our Lead Pastor. We have Kids classes for children 0-10 years at the site as well as small groups that meet during the week.

Due to COVID-19 Restrictions, we will be meeting outdoors on Sundays at 9:30AM at the playground located at the Sumner Headstart Building at 703 S Beech Street.
What To Expect for Our Outdoor Service:
  • Our service time has changed to 9:30AM while we are doing Outdoor services so that we can enjoy live preaching.
  •  We will be practicing our ground rules of D.T.M. 
  •  We will keep our Distance of at least 6ft whenever possible.
  •  We will refrain from Touch by not giving handshakes or hugs
  • We will expect everyone over the age of 3 years old to wear a mask for the duration of the service while on the playground premises for everyone’s safety and comfort. There won’t be any exceptions to this.
  •  Every family and individual will need to sign in. 
  • Children will be able to play on the playground during the service.  We will have a scavenger hunt that they can participate in as well as a sanitized ziplock bag of coloring sheets and crayons.  There will be two volunteers helping to maintain social distance for children but families will be responsible for children.  
  • Bring your own lawn chairs and umbrella/raincoat in case of rain.  We will have ample space for distancing in the shade.
  • Bathrooms will not be immediately available on the premises but can be accessed at our church building a block away.
