BE THE BLESSING

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see
your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
- Matthew 5:16

When we act generously, we give others a little glimpse of His heart. And to the watching community, when we act with
deliberate generosity, we remind our community that the church is on their side! When we give to others out of obedience and
love for God, the ripple effect is they get to see Him.

OUR PARTNERS 

This has been quite a year, for all of us. As lives have been up-ended in our communities there are organizations who have taken the time to adapt how they do what they do, and they've been able to carry on continuing to meet the needs of those who rely on them. These organizations have found a way to be the blessing
Food donations may be dropped off at the church building, Monday - Thursday between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm.

Double Stuff
the Truck

House of the Carpenter
The House of the Carpenter serves the needs of today while building hope for tomorrow. They serve people throughout the Upper Ohio Valley on both sides of the Ohio River.

Through Double Stuff the Truck we stock their food pantry for the winter months.

Winter Freeze Shelter

Youth Services System
Yes, someone donated a cow again this year! During the coldest months of the year, YSS hosts the Winter Freeze Shelter for Wheeling's homeless population. We share their conviction that no one should freeze to death on the streets as long as we are here, and the Vineyard gets to make the food!
 

Homeless Church

Over the summer, we saw our congregation grow at Heritage Port. Part of that growth was some of the homeless population from the Wheeling area. As we were working on transitioning to Church at Home, we wanted to make sure we didn't leave anyone behind. YSS provides a space for us to host church for the homeless on Sunday mornings, and they are coming!

Partner In Education

Madison Elementary School
The Vineyard and Madison School are partners in Education again this year, and although COVID has made that more difficult, the need continues to grow. This year we will be hosting a basketball clinic, providing music for their Christmas Programs, decorating the school with new and encouraging artwork, and providing content for a new virtual mentoring program, among other things.

Pregnancy
Care Center

Wellspring (Moundsville)
This year, we will help them purchase formula, diapers, car seats, and other practical necessities that enable underprivileged women to keep their babies and provide safe environments for them.  

Addiction Crisis

Addiction is the biggest issue facing our community, and the Vineyard has been blessed with the ability to respond to it from a faith perspective. Chris Dew, who is part of our teaching team, is  leading a group of Vineyard folks through a small group based on his book and building a community of people who can respond to this crisis in our community.


Underground Church
in Vietnam

For over 10 years, we have been training pastors and leaders, distributing wheelchairs, and planting churches in Vietnam. We will be sending a portion of the funds over to help the church respond with the love of Christ, and we will also be outfitting 5 house churches with the necessary equipment to continue to grow and reach their communities for Jesus.  

Congregation
of Caring

Wheeling Health Right
Health Right is a fixture in our community, providing free healthcare services for those who cannot access it otherwise. We will be supporting Heath Right through their Congregations For Caring program. A portion of your giving will support the important work they do.

YoungLife Capernaum

Young Life Capernaum comes alongside teens and young adults with disabilities, providing activities, social environments, camp experiences, and, most importantly, sharing the Gospel of Jesus with them. This year we will be supporting this ministry financially as they care for and reach such an important group of young people in our community.  

Russell Nesbitt

Russell Nesbitt Services works with the adult special needs population in the Ohio Valley. They help with housing, programming, job placement, and much more. For the past several years, we have had the privilege to provide Christmas presents for all their clients at their annual Christmas party. This simple act of kindness brings melt-your-heart-smiles to the faces of some of the sweetest people.
