Serving In The Community

You don’t have to go far out the door to find people who need to feel hope and find God! We encourage individuals, families, Life Groups and Adult Bible Fellowships to find ways to serve and impact our communities. Some of our organized serving opportunities include:

helping-hands-sliderHelping Hands
Throughout the week teams of two or more volunteers seek to be the hands and feet of our Lord in meeting the urgent physical needs of those in our church and community who are unable to do for themselves.  This may include widows, senior citizens, divorced, disabled, etc… people who have household needs that they are unable to take care of on their own.  Our teams of volunteers seek to lovingly provide the help those of our church family and community need in order to live normal lives.  If you have “handyman” skills or are able to do yard work, or simply want to be a helper in these areas, this may be an opportunity for you to serve others, form friendships, and follow God’s path for your life at the same time. Life Groups, Adult Bible Fellowship Groups, and Student groups are encouraged to participate.

Whiz Kids Tutors Slider

Whiz Kids (Ross and Colerain Campus)
Whiz Kids is a weekly tutoring program sponsored by City Gospel Mission. Adults spend 60 minutes a week with a 3-5 grader helping with reading skills (all materials and training provided) as well as being a caring adult in the child’s life. For information on how to get involved, contact Lydia Coyle (Colerain).

WK Unplugged (Colerain Campus)
WK Unplugged is similar to Whiz Kids, but works directly with middle school students. Want to learn more? Contact Kevin Wiesner.

Baby-Bottles-empty-sliderBaby Bottle Campaigns
Your change can change lives! Each year we encourage families to save their change to donate to Oxford Women’s Care Center (Ross) or Life Forward of Cincinnati (Colerain) to help with their mission to assist women in crisis pregnancy situations. Watch the Sunday program for dates.  Contact the office to receive additional information outside of the Baby Bottle Campaign each year.

Share the joy of Christmas with children in the community by donating toys for all ages of kids ($25 or less) or $25 gift cards from Wal-Mart or Target for teens. Toys are distributed through S.O.N. Ministries and Northwest Local School District. Drop off donations in the toy boxes near each entrance beginning in November. Details for ways to assist with organization and distribution will be in the weekly program given out on Sundays in November and early December. Contact Gary & Pam Schroeder for more information.

Hope for the Holidays (Ross Campus) Christmas
Beginning in mid-November of each year, families will have an opportunity to “adopt” local families in need to provide Christmas gifts. Details will be in the weekly program given out on Sundays. Contact if you would like to participate.
