Mission and Outreach

October Serve Saturday on 10/16

We have adapted to COVID so that people can still serve in meaningful ways to support local partnerships. There are family friendly options, no contact options, options to serve at home, and limited numbers to keep with COVID guidelines. Brief descriptions of each of the partners/projects are below. 

Serve with Wesley Chapel Mission Center in Over the Rhine for mentoring/learning with the STAR Club kids: 

  • 10:15a -12:45p at Wesley Chapel Mission Center (70 E McMicken Ave)
  • Volunteers need to be age 14 and up (anyone younger, ages 4-13, would need to come with a parent and participate in the program like the other children attending)
  • A tutoring opportunity (STAR stands for Science, Technology, Arithmetic, and Reading) working with children pre-K to 6th grade.
  • Upon arrival at Wesley Chapel Mission Center you will play games with children before the program starts. PreK-6th grade children work one-on-one with volunteers on homework or materials provided by WCMC. Through this program, we are able to support and encourage the work that goes on in school. Students are invited based on the number of volunteers we have, so we are always looking for help in this area.
  • Please wear comfortable shoes, clothes, and bring a water bottle and mask.
  • Click here to fill out their volunteer form online before you serve
  • Safety Measures in Place? All students and volunteers will have a health check prior to entering our buildings. Hands are to be washed as soon as you enter. Masks should be worn by students, staff and volunteers throughout the day. Please bring your own mask and a water bottle.

Help make a house a home with New Life Furniture Bank in Blue Ash: 

  • 9:00a -12:00p at New Life Furniture (11335 Reed Hartman Hwy. Unit 134 in Blue Ash)
  • A team of up to 8 (ages 12 and up) will help make a house a home by sorting dishes and linen donations and boxing them up for delivery.
  • Please wear comfortable shoes, clothes, and bring a water bottle and mask.
  • Please visit the Super Serve Saturday page to download, print, fill out and bring the volunteer form when you serve.
  • Safety Measures in Place: Limited number of people in serving, temperature upon arrival and sign off on COVID checklist, tables are spaced 6ft apart, gloves and hand sanitizer at each table, please bring a mask to wear and a water bottle.
  • You need to sign up for this project by Wednesday, October 13th. 

Prepare part of a meal for residents and staff at The Center for Respite Care: 

  • Want an option where you can serve at home?
  • Sign up to prepare part of a meal (choose from entree, side, salad, drinks, dessert, pantry items, etc.) for around 15-18 residents and staff at The Center for Respite Care.
  • Drop off takes place at the church parking lot at 4:00p on Saturday OR Welcome Center kitchen anytime throughout the week before 4:00p and the Sheldons will take the meal to Respite. 
  • Items that need to be hot/warm for the meal need to be dropped off at the church on Saturday afternoon at 4:00p. 
  • For a totally no contact option, choose a cold/room temperature meal item and drop off your item in the Welcome Center kitchen before 4:00p on Super Serve Saturday.

Decorate and/or write a greeting card for Thanksgiving: 

  • An at-home option great for children and people of all ages.
  • Instead of packing food into boxes as a way to show love to our neighbors, we are going to give families a $50 gift card to Kroger to celebrate Thanksgiving. This ministry will impact 552 families in Cincinnati this year.
  • Since gift cards can be impersonal, we are adding a personal touch by putting the gift card in a Thanksgiving Greeting card. You can write a special note to a family or have your children or grandchildren decorate the cards.
  • Cards and instructions can be picked up on the counter of the Welcome Center and cards must be returned by Sunday November 7.
Date: 10/16/2021 (Sat.)
