Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

The Missions Board is teaming up with Heaven's Ministries

Vinton Baptist Church will be partnering with Heaven's Ministries to help the Homeless in the Columbus area.  A group will be taking a journey to Columbus on Saturday, February 15 and we will be sharing God's word along with items that are needed by the homeless.    What a great weekend to be doing this on Valentines Day weekend!
Our goal is to have abut 100 of these to take with us and distribute.   The cost is about $5 to $10 each to put together.  Below is a list of items needed that can be put in 1 gallon bags along with items that are very helpful to the Homeless this time of year:

Bottle of Water or Juice Box
Umbrella or Poncho
Hand & Foot Warmers
Flashlights & Batteries
Tuna & Cracker kits or other small food kits
Granola bar or cereal bar
Crackers with Peanut Butter or cheese
Gift Certificate for Fast food ($5 McDonalds is best)
Small pack of Hand Wipes or hand sanitizer
Small bottles of soap, shampoo or dry shampoo
Small Pack of Tissues
Toothbrush & Toothpaste
Band aids
Chap Stick
Lotion Comb or Small brush
Mints, Cough drops or gum
Note of Encouragement
1 Pound Propane Cylinders - this is a high demand item this time of year
New or Gently used blankets

This is our first of these type of mission projects that we would like to do. We are making plans on helping the homeless in our own area as well.

Thank you for helping us take Vinton Baptist Church out into the Mission Field beyond our doors as we are called to do!!
