Operation Christmas Child

The amazing journey of a shoebox gift begins with you and results in evangelism, discipleship, and multiplication. Each year, you - the church, pack between 500-600 boxes that shares the good news across the world. 

Double Stuff the Truck

Our annual food drive to support the House of the Carpenter will be underway December 3-5.  Hunger is a real issue in our community, and you can make a difference through this project.  You can bring non-perishable food items to church that weekend, and volunteer to collect food at Riesbeck’s as well.

Winter Freeze Shelter

This has become a tradition for the Vineyard. Every year someone has donated a cow to the effort and that beef becomes the foundation on which we build a menu of hot delicious and nutritious food. Then, the Vineyard team of cooks prepares  enough food in a week to feed the homeless a hot, hearty dinner almost every evening throughout the coldest months of winter.  The meals are frozen until they’re needed, and then Youth Services Systems hosts our homeless friends in a warm sleeping environment, and heats up the meals provided by you.
 
We’d like to give a special thank you  to Ziegenfelders for storing all the food in their big freezers.  This is a true community partnership, and an honor to be a part of.  

East Wheeling Campus

We opened a new church campus during COVID.  That's right, when many churches were shutting down we were opening a new venue.  It meets at the Youth Services building in East Wheeling every Sunday morning and most Wednesday nights.  This campus was started to provide a place for our downtown crew who don’t have transportation, and our homeless population, a place to worship.  They named their campus “Hands of Hope, Heart of God” and around 50 folks gather each week for the church service and then a meal.  God is changing lives through our church!!! Our team of volunteers faithfully leads this congregation each week, and are pouring the love and hope of Jesus into the folks who come and into the community where they live. A portion of this year’s Be The Blessing offering will go toward keeping this effort going with food and support.

Madison Elementary

As a partner in Education with Madison, we are committed to providing help, support and hope to the students, teachers and administration. It’s an honor to partner with such a great group of teachers, many of whom consider Madison their mission field and the children their ministry.  Over the years we have provided needed equipment, fun programming, and an army of mentors and volunteers. This year we are recruiting new mentors, starting an afterschool program,  painting the new playground, and of course raising some money to pay for it all.

Feed My Sheep

This is big!  And new… Starting in January our church is taking on a new ministry feeding the street children of San Jose Costa Rica.  For the past 15 years the Feed My Sheep Association, based in Pittsburgh, has been feeding the street children of San Jose.  Recently they asked if our church would consider taking the reins and leading this ministry.  After much thought, prayer, conversation among the leadership team and Chris making a visit to this ministry in Central America, we felt that God was saying “Do It!”  So we are.  Starting January 1, we have 150 children depending on us for the one meal they can count on each day.  Our partner church down there prepares the food and teaches the children about Jesus.   In the near future, we will offer child sponsorship opportunities, but for now, we need to seed this ministry with about $20,000.  Are you in?

“I am so excited about the trips will be taking, and the ministry we’llll be building between Wheeling, WV and Costa Rica.  God has positioned us and called us to Feed His Sheep, and we’re going to Go For It!” - Pastor Chris

Hope Center

The single biggest concern facing our community right now is the drug epidemic.  We are losing people at an unprecedented rate to overdose, but in reality, we are losing a lot more to the black hole of addiction.  It crosses all socioeconomic boundaries and affects people from all walks of life.  Unfortunately, this is a problem that feels overwhelming and seems to have no answer.  But that’s where Hope Center - Wheeling comes in.  

A Hope Center is a Christian rehab center, (there are currently 27 centers) and they are literally setting the captives free.  Their 12-month program is producing fantastic results around the world.  The program is biblically-based, tied to a local church community (that would be us), and incredibly effective and affordable for participants.  We need to raise $260,000 to get the first men’s facility up and running here in Wheeling.  Once that is established we will start work on a woman’s facility.
