Four Years Later
Hundreds of bags have been given to friends, businesses, restaurants, and families and thousands of small packs of items have been scattered all over the area. Now, when we mention outreach there is a noticeable positive buzz within the Vineyard and positive association points within our community. Stories of people crying after receiving a gift is common, people saying, ‘Oh, you are that ‘pretty good church’ that serves the community.’ is a frequent response. The Church is re-defined in our community and countless seeds are planted and watered by God’s grace and His generosity is expressed through our positive proactive deeds.
Kindness To Go! Breaking down barriers, and building bridges.
A barrier prevents people connecting...truth to be shared...love and care to be expressed or to be received.
A bridge is often built to shorten the distance between two points. The Forth Road Bridge(not the one in the picture) was built for this purpose. Before the bridge was built a person had to wait in line to catch a ferry, a hassle on a cold dreary day, or travel about 15 miles out of your way to the Kincardine bridge.
Kindness to go breaks down emotional, personal, religious and relational barriers and builds a bridge into the heart of the people we serve.
