Initiatives

While loving God, others and our city, we feel called to three distinct initiatives where we focus our ministry and efforts toward. Click on each initiative to learn more about how we partner with the church and other organization to see hunger ended, justice served, and families strengthened.
We at the Vineyard want to see hunger end, not only in our own community but globally. To that end, we partner with organizations who are already dedicated to this cause.

WEEKLY DRIVE THROUGH FOOD PANTRY
In partnership with the Weld County Food Bank, we make a dent in hunger in our own community through our weekly drive up pantry.  We partner, not only financially, but also practically, though providing weekly food boxes and survival kits for UNC students at finals.

WELD FOOD BANK
“To lead and engage our community in the fight against hunger” Weld Food Bank is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization which alleviates hunger and poverty by providing food and services to people in need. We are a private non-profit organization and are not a part of county government. We work to educate the public about the nature of hunger and poverty. We recognize the need for emergency and supplemental food programs and of other non-profit organizations that meet the critical needs of low-income families. When we provide our services we strive to do so with compassion and respect for the dignity of the people seeking food assistance. Last year we provided over 14.6 million pounds of food to the hungry in Weld County.

Justice is something that is not only at the center of our hearts at the Vineyard, but we believe God is making all things right and new. We want to partner with God to see justice come to our families, community and to the ends of the earth. For this, we have partnered with specific organizations who are bringing justice to the city of Greeley and also globally.


ZOE'S CAFE
In 2011,  things radically changed when a team of 20 eager travelers ventured from Zoe’s to a coffee farm in Villa Rica, Peru.  Their abrupt introduction to coffee farming in the Amazon jungle included lots of mud, little knowledge, and being changed by huge hearts of the welcoming Quispe family and resulted in a powerful and mutually benefiting impact that relationally traded coffee could have both for their lives and for ours.  We proudly serve Zoe's Mama Nelly's Peruvian coffee here at the Greeley Vineyard as small way to support justice to the end's of the earth

Today we see more brokenness, hurt and disconnection at home. We believe that when families are supported, loved and encouraged they truly can fill their God given mission, to love the world around them. At the Vineyard, we not only want to equip and encourage our families within our church, but we want to see our community and families all over the world reconciled and strengthened.

SERVE 6.8
SERVE 6.8 is dedicated to partnering with local churches to meet needs of families and help families connect to a church community where they can be surrounded by support and hear the Gospel message. Each partnership is unique - because each church body is unique! We partner with each church to equip and mobilize their members to serve others and provide Biblically-based care ministries through their existing ministries, seasonal opportunities or at the Resource Center.

THE CHURCH
You the church are our partner. Who better to strengthen and encourage the family next door or that single mom struggling to make ends meet? Through small groups, through outreaches like Thanksgiving turkey baskets and stay close to the needs of families within our church community, we can partner to see families all over Greeley supported and loved.
