Getting started is easy! In fact, it is as easy as G.R.O.W.

  • Grab your study guide ($10) at any of our lobbies after a weekend service 
  • Recruit some friends, family or co-workers to do the study with you.
  • Open your calendar and pick a weekly time.
  • Walk through Who Says? together.

Who Says? is a 6-week Life Group Study that will connect you with God and others.


Over the years you have learned little bits of wisdom that have become part of the way you think. Some of these are wise, others are quirky. Some are... Can we say it? Wrong.

Who Says? will create the space and conversation to help you think through what you believe and why you believe it. If these things are true, they can stand up to examination. If they prove to be false, it’s time to get a second opinion.


"I’ll be preaching right along with the topics you are discussing and we’ll all have the momentum of knowing that several thousand of us are in this together. It’s going to be a great six weeks to kick off the year!"
-Rob King

Life Groups are great and safe places to put our ideas on the table along with others and discover if they really make sense. In particular, we want to take a look at how what God says compares to what we believe. There’s never a dull moment when that is happening.

Get ready to have some fun, enjoy great conversation, and to break free from things that might be holding you back!

Frequently Asked Questions

WHO SAYS? IS FOR EVERYONE. GRAB SOME FRIENDS AND DO IT TOGETHER.

What if I’m already in a Life Group?

That’s great! We are asking that ALL Life Groups participate in Who Says. We are also asking existing Life Group members to prayerfully consider starting a new group around Who Says. Doing so might be a great way to reignite your faith and also include people that might not otherwise join a Life Group.

What if I’m new to the church and don’t know anyone?

You can find a few friends (whether they go to Vineyard Cincinnati Church or not) and do the study together. Just follow the G.R.O.W. process above.

What if I want to join an existing Life Group?

Go for it! If you know someone in a group and want to join them, just ask them. Otherwise, you can start a new group and invite a friend or two to join you!

Can I invite new people to join my existing Life Group?

Absolutely. We are asking all existing Life Groups to pray about who the Lord might be leading them to invite and include. That said, the first option is to prayerfully consider starting a new group around Who Says in addition to your existing Life Group. Both are good options. Ask the Holy Spirit to lead you.

What if my group already has selected a curriculum for January?

For the sake of unity we are asking that all Life Groups participate in Who Says. It will be an incredible experience to share together, and it will provide great momentum for our church. You don’t want to miss this!

What if my Life Group doesn’t meet every week?

We are encouraging groups to meet weekly during this 6-week series. It will benefit the group to stay aligned with the weekend sermons.

Do I have to hear the weekend sermon to participate in weekly curriculum?

No! The curriculum is designed as an independent resource. But the weekend sermons during this series will align with the curriculum, so there will be a benefit to hearing the weekend sermons.

Do we have to purchase a DVD or will the video content be available online?

You can purchase a DVD at any lobby after the weekend services starting Jan. 5, or you can access the video content online for free. The link will be available soon.

Will a DVD come with each study guide or will there be just one DVD per life group?

The DVD and study guide are purchased separately. You only need 1 DVD per group, but all group members will need a copy of the study guide.

Why is there a per person cost?

Who Says has a per person cost because every person will need the study guide ($10) for notes, devotional material, etc. However, we believe in being generous people so if someone cannot afford a study guide we want them to take one for free and be part of a group. You may want to buy a couple but only take one as a way to pay it forward!

Is the content on the DVD intended to be viewed together by the group during the meeting?

Yes! Each week will have 15-20 minutes of video content, and then the group can use the study guide with the discussion questions for the rest of the group time.
