NEW INITIATIVE / DURHAM NON-PROFIT: 

One of Vintage’s twenty-year goals is to launch twenty sustainable non-profits in the next twenty years, all to help extend the kingdom of God throughout the Triangle. Abound is the fuel for these efforts; as we pray and give towards new initiatives, new builders, and new spaces.

We’re excited to present The Village Durham, a non-profit started by Vintage Durham member Heather Lauria along with partners Wendy Dingeldein and Meaghan Langston. Heather was stirred through the Abound Initiative to move their vision towards becoming an official non-profit, and is going through our non-profit incubator.

The Mission of Village Durham is to support family preservation by connecting parents in crisis with community relationship and partnering organizations. Their vision is to create a community united to keep families together.

Please pray for these women and this new organization, and be encouraged that your generosity and work has life-changing results!

Durham

Melanie’s passion was to see the needs of the church and community known, shared, and met. As a result, she launched the Vintage Durham Needs Ministry. This Abound effort has reminded Vintage Durham that when anyone in the church finds themselves in need, we all share in that need. Whether it is a meal, childcare, furniture, transportation, or something completely different, our desire as a church is to come alongside one another.

West

Our Advance Team has taken immense ownership of caring for the students, teachers, and administrative staff at Laurel Park Elementary. One of many such efforts is providing backpacks filled with food for at-risk students who would otherwise go hungry over the weekend. “Seeing the need” through our Abound series has spurred this on.

Downtown

Abound caused Lamar to prayerfully rethink his calling in life after spending years with the sheriff’s department. As a result, he has applied and been accepted at Vintage as our Ministry Resident of Community Engagement where he will help us serve, love, and care for youth in our community.

North

What a joy it was to see young Charlotte baptized in February. When asked why she wanted to be baptized she said, “Because I really believe in Jesus.” This was especially moving as we remember Charlotte being dedicated as a baby several years ago.

New Spaces

The God we serve is at work and moving in amazing ways! You, Vintage Church, are joining in the mighty work that he is doing and it is a beautiful thing to be a part of. In the weeks ahead you are going to hear some incredible stories of builders, initiatives, and spaces that the Lord has already begun a work in.
