Food Pantry

We believe that it is our calling to be concerned and care for the under resourced among us. The Loveland Vineyard Food Pantry is located in our church building at 900 Josephine Court and is open Tuesday through Thursday from 9:00 – 12:00 noon or by special appointment. Recipients are asked to fill out a brief application. In addition to nonperishable foods, we typically have available  eggs, produce, bread, frozen meat, diapers and personal hygiene products. Each box of food contains a variety of foods that can be prepared into healthy meals. Families can visit the Food Pantry once per month unless personal circumstances require another visit. The Vineyard purchases the food from the Larimer County Food Bank and volunteers sort and box the food each month. We also receive produce from Trader Jo Grocery in Fort Collins.  Our restock day is the first Tuesday morning of the month at 10:00am.  During the past fiscal year the Loveland Vineyard served 1,263 households.

Food Pantry Coordinator: Mary VanderTop

Band Jam

Calling all musicians! Do you miss getting together and playing music together? Or maybe you are so busy you don’t have time to be in a band? Join us this Saturday for an afternoon jam session led by Eli. We will use JamKazam, an app that allows users to play music together in real time from different locations. Please contact us at office@lovelandvineyard.org if you are interested, and would like to reserve a spot.

Karaoke Night!

Calling all singers! Join us for a fun night filled with music.

Instructions for joining

What you’ll need: 

  1. A computer or laptop with a webcam. (If your computer does not have a webcam, you can use two separate devices eg: phone and tablet, so long as one has a camera) 
  2. Internet access 
  3. Earphones 
  4. Song Ideas 
  5. Your fun personality! 

 

Here’s how it will go, loosely: 

  1. Join our Zoom Call. Right click here and select “Open link in new window” (This allows us to see and hear each other) 
  2. Join our Watch2Gether Room. Right click here and select “Open link in new window” (this allows us to watch the same karaoke videos at the same time/playback rate) 
  3. At this point you should have two browser windows open. In one is Zoom, in the other is a YouTube karaoke video running so you and your co-singers can all see the same lyrics in sync while also watching the videoconference.  Place the two windows side by side, so that you can see both at the same time. It should look something like this: 
  4. If you are using two separate devices, open Zoom on the device with a camera, and open Watch2Gether on the other device. 
  5. In the chat function of the Zoom Meeting, put your name and song request. Example: Sarah “Goodbye Earl” 
  6. I’ll add it to the queue in (roughly) the order they come in. Please be patient. If you want to do more than one song wait until after your first to add another. 
  7. When your song comes up, I’ll introduce you and you’ll…. 
  8. Sing! 

*Duets encouraged! We can take a couple breaks here and there to chat and say hello and find duet partners. 

*Costumes and fun lighting are also encouraged! 

 

Best Practices: 

  • Learn how to use Watch2Gether here 
  • It is encouraged to use earphones so there is no echo and you can still sing along. 
  • Stay muted if you aren’t singing 
  • Give others encouragement 
  • If you are doing a group number, lower/mute the volume on just your Watch2gether window (This helps mitigate the lag between song/words. It won’t be perfect, but since folks will see the words on the screen they can more easily match the timing with one audio source)

Color & Connect

Monday, April 27    10:30am

  • Let’s get artsy together. Join us on Zoom and we can chat while doing crafts. Feel free to use coloring books, paint, knit, sculpt, whatever medium you like!
