When God created Adam and Eve, he created the first family. And the family is God's original small group, built for relationship and community and to carry out God's mission and purpose to the hurting world. But 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.
Fred Tjardes School of Innovation: We love students and we want to partner with our local school district to support the students and families of our community. School of Innovation is a District 6 school that aims to develop students that have the critical thinking skills necessary to become productive citizens with a specific design around cross-curricular hands on projects, all while being located in downtown Greeley. We serve this school in a couple of ways. We open our building 1-2 per year to provide much needed space for the school to host their musicals and theatre productions. We also go the school monthly to provide cleaning as the school does not have a janitorial staff. To sign up for the next cleaning day click here.
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. Through our Storehouse, where clothes and dried food goods are provided, we can help meet the practical needs of families in our community.
Habitat For Humanity: In 2019, the Habitat for Humanity of Greeley is organizing their second annual Faith Build, where the finances and build will be primarily facilitated by churches and faith based organizations in and around Greeley. We are excited to partner with Habitat to provide a home for a family in need and this goes right in line with our initiative to see families loved and supported.
