We are a part of Vineyard Mission’s Tanzanian partnership. Members of the partnership offer prayer and support to Vineyard churches in Tanzania, a country where some of the first Vineyard churches are currently being planted! The partnership is committed to fostering a fully Tanzanian expression of the Vineyard movement by supporting Tanzanian leaders God has called.
To address the needs of our neighbors, and the fact that East Gainesville lacks access to quality food, we operate a food pantry at our Bridge Community Center in Lincoln Estates! The address is 1100 SE 17th Dr. Gainesville, FL 32641.
The Bridge Food Pantry is open every other Saturday 9 - 11am. Everyone is welcome to come, shop, and select the items that you like to eat. We have meat, dairy, produce, canned foods, bread, diapers, and more. We will be open the following Saturdays in 2019:
Sept. 14, 2019
Sept. 28, 2019
Oct. 12, 2019
Oct. 26, 2019
Nov. 9, 2019
Nov. 23, 2019

We also invite people in the community to volunteer with us. Text the church at 352-371-0838 to learn more about volunteer opportunities with the Bridge Food Pantry.
You can also contribute to purchasing groceries by texting a dollar amount and ‘pantry’ to 352-562-7771.
Partnership for Strong Families provides child welfare services designed to protect local children from abuse, neglect and abandonment and assists in establishing safe and permanent homes with their own families, partner families or adoptive parents. The Vineyard partners with PSF in a school supply drive in the Fall and in buying Christmas presents for foster children.
The Bull is downtown pub and cafe owned and operated by our Community Pastor, Jacob Larson. The Bull serves fresh pastries and coffee in the mornings and wine and beer starting at 4pm.
