Connecting People, God and The World

John Wesley once said “Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can,As long as ever you can.” We do our best to live into these words and our mission of connecting people, God and the world

The Vineyard Pantry

Gods love, grace and provision is provided in abundance! In response to Covid-19 we have started a Food Pantry. On Thursday's from 10am-12pm, we will have a people's choice food pantry where participants are encouraged to shop our pantry for their food. At this point, participants are welcome to shop every week and we do not have a zip code restriction. If you are unable to shop for yourself, please send a proxy on your behalf.

To shop, you must bring proper identification and qualify through the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank guidelines. To volunteer or if you have questions please contact us at vineumc@gmail.com
