Home Groups

Home groups meet weekly to worship, pray and share life together. They are a great place to go deeper with others in pursuit of God. Our regular home groups are always open to newcomers, so feel free to reach out to the leaders of these groups for more information.

Tuesdays, in-person, 6:00-7:30pm at FSUMC. Childcare provided. Led by Hannah Croasmun, Patrick Dunn, and Jesse and Mandi Mangler. 

Thursdays, in-person, 7:30-9:00pm. 38 Woodin St, Hamden. Led by Trinity Brandt and Sinclair Williams.

Thursdays, in-person, 6pm (dinner) - 8:30pm. 15 Knollwood Dr, New Haven. Led by Michelle and Todd Kennedy.

Tuesdays, on Zoom, 7:30pm. Led by Dustin Sclafani. Email patrick@elmcityvineyard.org for link.


Affinity groups

In different seasons, affinity groups gather around a shared passion, gifting, or story that they want to explore together more deeply.

Artists’ Circle, 2nd Monday of every month, 8pm. 42 Hobart St., New Haven. Led by Moriah Felder and Tina Colón Williams.

Classroom Teachers, every other Monday, 7-8:30pm, starting September 20. On the back patio at 47 Dyer St, New Haven until it gets cold and we switch to Zoom! Whether your classroom is in a grade school, a high school, a university, or at your own kitchen table (homeschool teachers welcome!), teaching can be a sacred vocation in which we can learn so much about ourselves, our students, and God’s work in our midst. Join us as we support one another and consider what God is doing in our classrooms.  Contact Matt Croasmun (matt@elmcityvineyard.org) for more info!


Topical groups

Some of our groups meet for only a few weeks or months to study and pray over a particular topic. Here are some of our current and upcoming topical groups.

Alpha, Mondays, beginning September 20th. For more information, contact josh@elmcityvineyard.org

Rooted, beginning in October. For more information, contact bill@elmcityvineyard.org


For more information on any of these groups or other opportunities to connect at ECV, email our associate pastor, Patrick (patrick@elmcityvineyard.org). 

Book Clubs, Workshops, & Learning Cohorts

At any given time, there are a few groups gathered to go deeper in a topic, read and discuss different books together, or do workshops that are relevant to our discipleship and our understanding of what it means to follow Jesus in our time and place. If you would like to learn more about groups currently happening or about future opportunities to join a book discussion, a workshop, or a learning cohort, contact our staff (patrick@elmcityvineyard.org).

“I remember thinking, ‘seriously God, I just can’t do this…’ I asked my homegroup to pray and they did… It may sound small, but in this season of my life it was an amazing expression of God’s mercy and love for me. The love and power of Jesus was evident in the members of ECV during that time. I truly saw the mercy and kindness of God.”
