Sermon Series

We’re living in a cultural moment where we either stand up for the truth and love of God or we remain silent and complicit to the sin and hate around us. The sin of racism has plagued our country and culture for nearly 400 years despite God having much to say about it. Vintage Church and every other church is at a pivotal moment, a moment of decision and will. Join Vintage as we hear from God and discover what he has to say about racism and how the church should respond to the sin of racism.

Say What?! Equip Series

What happens when we have to participate in uncomfortable conversations? Can we really engage with hard truths without damaging our relationships? In this series we explore crucial communication skills that lay the groundwork for productive and effective conversations that also prioritize unity and our relationships.

Session 1
Communication 101
Why are some conversations so difficult? In week one we define communication and look at all the various elements that factor into our communication. One of the most crucial skills in productive communication is Perspective Taking. In week one we do a deep dive into what makes up our perspectives and how certain strategies can help us understand others more effectively.
Session 2
Building a Supportive Climate
Have you ever seen a conversation make things worse in a relationship? Sometimes before initiating a hard conversation we need to consider the communication climate of the relationship. We need to ask ourselves, Can this relationship handle this hard conversation at this time? In week two we learn how to improve and build positive communication climates through our actions, our listening, and our words. 
Session 3
Go Time
Once we’ve done the hard work of evaluating our communication climates, we know we’re ready to initiate an uncomfortable conversation. Maybe we get thrown into a hard conversation that we didn’t see coming. This week we explore how to prepare for these moments, and how to organize and guide the conversation in a way that stays productive and effective, while making sure the relationship stays intact.


This two-hour documentary is about the increasingly common conversation taking place in homes and communities across the country between parents of color and their children, especially sons, about how to behave if they are ever stopped by the police. This program originally aired in 2017.

It’s been decades since Brown v. Board of Education, yet American schools remain largely segregated. Some leaders are working to change that.
