Back to School Party
On Sunday, July 30th, after a shortened church service, the church parking lot will turn into a large party with food, music, children’s games and adult giveaways. This signature Vineyard outreach is handing out 300+ school backpacks filled with school supplies for elementary aged students. It’s a blast!! This is our eleventh year of doing this.
Sack Lunch Ministry
Every June and July teams from the Vineyard go to a designated neighborhood to hand out free sack lunches to kids. Last summer we gave away 1100+ lunches.
Bread and Eggs ministry
Several times a year, a team blesses a senior citizen apartment complex with loaves of bread and a dozen eggs. There is always an opportunity to pray for those with needs.
Police Department Breakfast and Lunch the Firemen
A team of men offer coffee, breakfast foods, conversation and prayer to police officers at shift change. Several times a year we take lunch in to the local firemen to thank them for their service.
Our bag hunger ministry meets the needs of single parents with children and seniors on fixed incomes. Currently we are giving away between 75 – 100 bags annually.
Soup and Sandwich Supper
A couple of times a year we take supper to residents of a senior apartment housing complex. We serve them, eat with them, and talk with the residents and pray for them.
Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes
Each fall, our youth group teams up with Samaritan’s Purse Ministries and collects items to be placed into shoeboxes which are then wrapped and shipped all over the world. These shoeboxes are given to children through Samaritan’s Purse. Each shoebox contains age appropriate toys, school supplies, literature and joy!!
