Back to School Party
On Sunday, July 26th after a shortened church service, we will be giving away backpacks filled with school supplies to area elementary children. Due to COVID-19, we have changed the way that we are doing this annual outreach this year. We usually have a big party, with food and games, etc…. This year, due to COVID-19 and concern for large gatherings, we will be giving away the backpacks drive-thru style beginning at 11am and until the backpacks are gone.
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. **THIS SUMMER due to COVID-19 we are changing the way this is done. The school system is continuing to provide meals for area children thru the month of June. There we will be doing our lunches only in July. We will be providing “LUNCH KITS” to families in a drive-thru fashion. Each “Lunch Kit” will provide enough food for 2 sack lunches for 3-4 children per kit.
Lunch for the Firemen
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.
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!!
