The Raytown Vineyard Church Serves the Community

May 5, 2010

On Saturday, the City of Raytown held its Community Clean-Up Day that allowed community residents to dispose of excess household items.  This event was co-sponsored by the Raytown Parks & Recreation Department, the Raytown Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Shepherd’s Center of Raytown. 

We were honored to participate by providing hospitality for City staff and volunteers, in partnership with the City, Chamber of Commerce, Hy-Vee and Benetti’s Coffee Experience.

Raytown Vineyard Church Concludes 1st Year of Supporting Community Partners

January 7, 2010

From the very beginning, God has asked us to be a tithing church–where we give away the first 10% of our church’s income before we pay our bills.

As a new Raytown church completing our 1st year, we are committed to joining in with other ministries who are already doing effective ministry in our community.  This is a good opportunity for us to learn to be generous with no strings attached.

Thanks to God’s faithfulness through our generous congregation, we were able to give away over $7000 to community partners in the first year that we have been a church.

We have donated in Jesus’ name to these great organizations who are addressing critical physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs in the greater Raytown area :
