FACEBOOK
If you haven’t had the chance to check out our Facebook page, please visit us at The Vine Wesleyan Church, like and follow our page for announcements you may have heard Sunday morning but have forgotten, and for some inspiration and encouragement. We also hope that you share our content on your own Facebook page to minister and inspire your own sphere of influence.
LOST & FOUND
If you left behind any items at the picnic, please check the lost & found bin at the Welcome Center.
ST. PAULY TEXTILE, INC. (CLOTHING SHED)
In 2018 roughly 15,742 garments of clothing were donated to the Vine clothing shed. This was enough to clothe an estimated 1909 people in one or more of 44 different countries (including the US) to which our clothing is likely to have been distributed this past year. The Vine raised $916.74 in 2018 through hosting this shed. Please continue to spread the word about the clothing shed which is located next to the garage behind the Ministry Center. Thank you for your support.
MEAL MINISTRY
If you would love to prepare and deliver dinner meals to help our church family when those in need are recovering from medical issues, loss, crisis or having a newborn infant, please circle MEAL MINISTRY on your connection card on Sunday morning and we will add you to our list and contact you when the need arises. “…For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in….The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of my brothers of mine, you did for me.’ “ Matthew 25:35,40 (NIV)
