Audio Visual/ IT  Ministry

Psalm 100: 1 tells us to “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord.”

 

The Audio Visual Team plays a vital role in that process every week during church services. We are the behind-the-scenes crew of dedicated servants who serve with fervor and zeal unto the Lord. We ensure only the best sound quality is experienced by those attending service. In addition to Sunday service, we serve during the Wednesday night Bible Study and other scheduled programs. We also produce quality CD/DVD recordings of each service.

 

The Sound Tech Ministry is always seeking new members. Previous experience is not necessary. We will train all volunteers.

Baptism

“In him you were also circumcised, in the putting off of the sinful nature, not with a circumcision done by the hands of men but with the circumcision done by Christ, having been buried with him in baptism and raised with him through your faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead.” Colossians 2:11-12 (NIV)

 

This special service held on the third Sunday of each month at 10:15 a.m., is dedicated to the Baptism of those who have given their lives to Jesus Christ and wish to put their old sinful nature to death and to be resurrected to a brand new life (Romans 6:3-4, Acts 22:16).

Care & Visitation

Our purpose is to offer encouragement and to keep church leadership informed of anyone in need of special assistance or prayer; to prevent isolation from the Body of Christ; to reach out and keep in touch with those who are chronically absent...due to illness, a crisis or lack of encouragement. One of the core values of the Care and Visitation Ministry is “need fulfillment”. Care and Visitation is the church’s response to the compassionate people who have reached out to those in need.

 

Share your love, needs and prayer requests. Leave a message on our voice line at (210) 509-4024, press option 3 then leave a message, or e-mail us at carevisit@truevinesa.org and a member will respond as soon as possible.

Food Pantry

Provides food to those in need. The ministry of the True Vine Food Bank is to model the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by providing food to the hungry and needy. This effort is carried out by our volunteer work force using donated non-perishable food. Assistance is provided on a per case basis. In all cases, modeling the loving and compassionate character of Jesus is to be as much a part of our mission as the tangible food that we give.

Healing Hands (MedTeam)

Healing Hands is a group of trained medical personnel whose primary purpose is to provide immediate first aid and/or medical assistance to members and guest of the True Vine Baptist Church family until they have reached a level of stability or until emergency medical services arrive. We provide general advice and preventative information related to spiritual and physical health issues. We do not dispense any medication (over the counter or prescription). During the worship service, we are stationed against the wall at the back of the church. Healing Hands staff members wear name tags that easily identify them and check in with the ushers prior to worship service so that they are aware of our availability on Sundays. We perform free blood pressure checks the second Sunday of each month following the 10:30 a.m. worship service. We also hold an annual health fair. Look for health tips and disease highlights in upcoming newsletters. The ministry has members from various medical backgrounds (RNs, LVNs, medics, EMTs, surgical techs, etc).

Hospitality

“They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people.” (NIV) Acts 2:46-47.

 

The Hospitality Ministry plays a vital role in the church by ministering to the physical nourishment of the congregation. Sharing a meal together in a loving atmosphere creates an environment of fellowship, which in turn ministers to our emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. Serving and ministering to others in essence is the vocation of Christianity. Caring for others with a heart of compassion is modeled in Jesus’ ministry. Although the act of caring presents itself in many forms at True Vine, the Hospitality Ministry is the epitome of “selflessly serving” others.

Thomas Hawkins Nursing Home

Offering communion, song and companionship to nursing home residents. There is an old hymn that goes some- thing like this: “If I can help somebody as I pass along, if I can reach somebody with a word or a song. Then my living shall not be in vain.” I may not remember it exactly how “Gram-maw” used to sing it, but I hope you get the sentiment I’m trying to convey. The Care Home Ministry is an extraordinary experience. When you leave the nursing home, you will feel that your living is not in vain.

 

Join us every fourth Saturday from 10 to 11 a.m. at The Atrium Rehabilitation Centere at 7602 Louis Pasteur Drive. We would love to have you join us, and as we always say, “If you come to be a blessing, you will get blessed.” Then “your living WILL NOT be in vain.”

Praise Dance

We believe in using dance to reach out and to present the truth in fresh and creative ways. Essences of Praise dancers are consistent in what we call the “Powerful P’s” — prayer, praise and practice. Consistency brings result every time. Consistent prayer brings power, consistent praise brings peace and consistent practice brings perfection. We continually grow together as a family through fellowship; we study our Bibles, pray for and with each other and encourage one another. We worship and praise dance at the Baptismal services every third Sunday service and every fifth Sunday.

Ushers

The usher ministry is the first to meet and greet visitors and guest at the sanctuary door. We direct the congregation to a comfortable seat. Since we do not know the hearts of those coming to worship, it’s important that we set a good first impression by always being cheerful, courteous, and non judgmental in order for the church to continue its mission – “Working to save the lost and disciple the saved.”
