MINISTRIES

Christmas morning:

Our birthday present to Jesus.

OUR HISTORY OF MINISTRY

New Life Vineyard has a strong calling to minister to the poor, homeless, addicted, rejected, and oppressed.  Our food pantry began in 1995 with a few shelves in the church basement, and grew to be the largest in Southwest Ohio.

In the year 2000 the pantry was overwhelming our church building, so we bought a warehouse on East Avenue in Hamilton and named it Serve City, and moved our food pantry there. 

In the year 2001 we joined with several other churches to start a homeless shelter, now called "Chosen."
We housed up to sixty homeless in our gym for about half the time in the first year, while the other churches split the remaining weeks.  Eventually we were able to move the shelter to its permanent location in the building at Serve City.


In August 2008 we re-started a food pantry in our building to expand access to the surrounding community, and added our Medicine Assistance Program (helping people obtain prescription medicines) and our Toy Pantry (distributing toys to kids).

"When the Son of Man comes in his glory... the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'
The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'

Matthew 25
