In The City, For The City


"In the City, for the City!" is the phrase you will hear us use often to communicate where we focus our mission. In its simplicity, it communicates purpose, mission, location and hope. The City of Delaware should be a better place because the Delaware City Vineyard exists. And yet...We know that we are one part of the big picture and we are able to care for our City through partnering and featuring other places and space of care.  

Below are some resources for individuals and families to utilize. Additionally, these are organizations and partnerships that our church and members volunteer at and support in other ways. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us at
