The Vine Fellowship is on a food mission to
the Copley Police Department and the Copley
Seniors. The third Monday of each month a
group of volunteers from the church coordinates
a meal for the police. This group currently
consists of Evelyn Bell, Carol Comer,
Kay Daniel, Jean Griffith, Laurie Hillebrand,
Elaine Miller, Margaret Ruppert and Rita Vincent.
We began this ministry in March 2018
and have served two meals thus far which
been warmly received. If anyone else would
like to be part of this ministry, please contact

There is a senior team who are working with
the Copley Senior leaders to minister to
members of their organization. The current
plan is to supply a meal every January and
May for their monthly meeting. This group
consists of Stephanie Bankey, Ruth
Bartilison, Evelyn Bell, Bill & Kay Daniel,
Dick Franklin, Elaine Miller, Mark Ruppert
and Rita Vincent. If you are interested in

WHO WE ARE:
The Vine Fellowship is a group of people who want to know God, and grow with Him into people who are living examples of those who experience life to the fullest potential! We do this by growing in three particular areas:
1. Our relationship God (UP)
2. Our relationships with those close to us who also are growing, encouraging and challenging us (IN)
3. Our relationships in the world around us as we selflessly serve and share God's love (OUT)
WHERE DID WE COME FROM?
The Vine Fellowship is a congregation affiliated with the PCUSA denomination that came from Akron First Presbyterian Church on E. Market St. in Akron. After 180 years of ministry in that neighborhood, the church in 2009 decided to explore a relocation to the community of Copley, and in 2012 it established worship services and outreach in this community.
In September of 2012 The Vine Fellowship signed a lease on offices and small worship space at The HUB Community Center at 3676 Community Lane. Not only do we have offices there, but we also make that space available to serve the community in a number of ways: worship, family events, teen events, birthday parties, and exercise classes to name a few. Check it out at www.theHUBCopley.com!
We believe strongly in the authority of the Bible, in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord, and that we need an ever growing relationship with God to become disciples of Christ. Being a disciple means learning about Him, how He lived, and what He taught. Most importantly we need to be disciples by living out Jesus' instructions to "love Him with all of our heart and soul and mind and to love our neighbors as ourselves." That results in abundant grace, a lot of forgiveness, and meeting people's needs. We invite you to come check us out, and see what God is doing!
