CHRISTMAS AT DCV

You're invited! The following are our Christmas Services:


Christmas Eve EVE: Let's celebrate Christmas together on Christmas Eve Eve at DCV with Christmas Carols, Cookies and Refreshments outside. Join us at 7pm on December 23rd!


Christmas Eve: Join us for our traditional Christmas Eve service on December 24th at 7pm to celebrate Christ's birth. Following Christmas Eve service, we will have donuts available to deliver to first responders that night. Invite friends and family to join us for this service.


We have an annual tradition of taking off some time over the holidays. This gives our staff and volunteers time to celebrate with friends and families along with encouraging our church to have a relaxed rhythm between Christmas and New Year. The following is our Holiday Schedule:


December 26: No Sunday Services at the Delaware City Vineyard. 


December 27: FEEDdelaware is not scheduled for this evening. We will resume our food pantry services on January 3rd. If you are in urgent need of feed relief, please email us at dcv@delawarecityvineyard.org. 


January 2nd | Sunday | 10:15AM: We will kick off the New Year by gathering together as a church family to connect over bakery treats, enjoy a cup of coffee/cocoa and play some games! Guests are always welcome! This will replace our traditional church service. We will have activities and games for both adults and children. In particular we will be having a slipper parade for the kiddos, so have them wear their favorite ones! We hope to see you there!


*The Delaware City Vineyard offices and ministries will be closed from December 25th - January 1st. Online gifts can be made HERE and in person donations can be placed in the secure black box outside of the church. For any end of year giving questions please reach out to our Executive Director, JO STOTTLEMIRE. 


All services and ministries will resume on January 3rd. We look forward to seeing you at one of our Christmas Services and being back together on January 2nd! 



WHAT'S THE INVITATION?

To give joyfully, generously and expectantly to support the mission and vision of the Delaware City Vineyard.

This year we have discerned that we will allocate this special offering to equip our church to bring hope and healing in the name of Jesus.

HOW WILL THIS SPECIAL OFFERING BE USED?

This will cause us to use this year’s Giving Tuesday giving in 3 designated ways: 


  • STAFFING NEW HIRES (60% of Giving Tuesday Total Giving)  |  You read that right! Our Elders have given us the green light to move forward with pursuing additional staffing! As we come to the end of 2021, we have a good picture of the staffing needs we have to care for our church and city. The staffing needs our church has requires additional financial support to do this. 

  • FEEDdelaware FOOD PANTRY (20% Giving Tuesday Total Giving) | Our Food Pantry is one of the practical ways we serve our church and city-bringing relief, hope and healing to our city. We currently have the financial and practical resources to continue serving guests with our weekly drive-thru pantry. We have hopes and dreams of resuming a regular rhythm of community dinner. Partner with us to help us make those dreams a reality!!

  • SAVINGS (20% Giving Tuesday Total Giving) | This is simply good stewardship (Spend, Save, Give)!
