The Natomas Vineyard Church
A Community Church in Natomas

Our Vision

Connecting with God and with our community

Our Mission

We connect to God and to our community by connecting our passions with God's purpose and our struggles to His power as we find our place in His story

What To Expect
We gather at 11:00 am Sunday morning. We start with coffee, snacks and announcements, which leads into worship led by a live band. We encourage everyone to do what is comfortable for them. They can stand, sit, sing or quietly contemplate the lyrics. We then have a Bible based talk given by one of our pastors or leaders. We aim to have a culturally relevant talk for teens and adults. While the children have a lesson that is fun and interesting to them. At the end of our gathering we offer prayer thats relevant to our talk or for personal needs. Our time together lasts about an hour and a half. 

Once a month we have a "All Ages" gathering where we keep everyone together. On these Sundays we usually do an object lesson, or a short talk followed by an activity that the whole family can participate in. In the past we've done Treasure Hunts, an Obstacle Course, made smoothies or planted plants ect. We try to make it fun, hands on and relevant to the talk. Something that the whole family will enjoy and remember.  
Who Are We
We are a group of people who are growing in and practicing our faith together. We love our Natomas community. We love to celebrate. Whether it is a Holiday or a life event we celebrate the good things in our lives. But, sometimes life is hard so we also walk together through difficult seasons in each others lives. We believe in God's Kingdom and that through our relationship with Jesus we can grow to be healthy loving individuals who care for those in our Natomas Community, Sacramento and our World. We believe that everyone is welcome and loved for who they are. We recognize that we are broken imperfect people deeply loved by our Creator. We are walking out our faith journey together as a "Faith Community."

The Zapara’s recently celebrated 21 years of marriage and enjoy a full family life with their three teen age kids. Joedy a local native, and Kendra who moved here in Junior High, have lived all over the greater Sacramento area growing up. As the family grew and the kids were getting ready to go to school, they settled into the Sacramento suburb of Natomas, where they’ve now lived for 15 years. Both have been involved in local Vineyard churches their whole lives and have been serving and leading since high school in areas of worship, youth, small groups, counseling, and wherever else needed. Joedy was ordained as a minister in 2000 and Kendra in 2015. They also help with leadership within the greater Vineyard movement as Area Overseers for Northern California, Southern Oregon, and Northern Nevada. In addition to pastoring, Joedy runs a residential remodeling company called JAZ Developments.
