Thursday Dinner Church
Grocery registration at 4:30 // Dinner at 5:30 // Service at 6:00
Every Thursday night is our first service of the weekend, but before that, we prepare a hot meal and groceries for guests.
The community outreach portion of the night begins as soon as our doors open, at 4:30, and is open to anyone in need. You can register to take home a free bag of groceries once a month. They include items such as fresh produce, dry goods, snacks and frozen meat. Just remember, a Lee County Photo ID is required to participate in receiving groceries.
You'll also be able to take free bread with you every week regardless of whether you register for groceries or not, and just might snag some additional desserts too! We often have extras, so stay late to grab more goodies.
If you are just coming for dinner, our servers bring around donuts, cakes, other snacks, and drinks to your table as soon as you're seated. That's right! We do dessert first at the Vineyard. At 5:35, the team prays and then delivers the main course which our chef or cooks prepare—always hot and fresh, never cold or frozen.
Service is immediately transitioned into just before 6:00, stays round table style, and is an abbreviated version of the services that will happen on Sunday. Our band plays a couple of worship songs before one of our pastors delivers the message. One final song happens after the pastor has opened up the service for anyone to receive Jesus as their Lord, and then service is dismissed and registered guests are free to pick up their monthly grocery bag.
