WE’RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE
IN OUR COMMUNITY AND THE WORLD
(And we’re always looking for
more folks who are eager to help!)
Our mission programs are dedicated to sharing God’s loving kindness with our neighbors,
our community, and beyond. If you’d like to help a neighbor in need, we invite you
to be part of this ministry, serving as the hands and feet of Christ in the world today!
Keeping temporarily homeless families together
We are a support church for the faith-based Family Promise of Northern Kentucky, the only organization in the state that enables families experiencing temporary homelessness to stay together while they get their lives back on track. We provide transportation, serve a meal, host the families for the evening, and stay overnight.
Addressing the need for affordable housing
We provide volunteer labor to Housing Opportunities of Northern Kentucky (HONK), a faith-based organization that addresses the need for good quality affordable homes in the inner city and helps create a path to home ownership for people with limited incomes.
Feeding the hungry
Every month we prepare meals for the Tender Mercies soup kitchen and help distribute food through the Isaiah Ministries program in Covington.
Doing hands-on repairs
During our summer mission trip we help homeowners who are having trouble maintaining their homes, often because of age or health concerns. While this annual trip allows us to serve our neighbors, it is also a great way to build fellowship and get to better know our “neighbors in the pews.”
Assisting migrant workers working low-paying jobs
When temporary workers arrive for seasonal jobs at Turfway racetrack, we help make their stay a little more pleasant by providing much-needed clothing and personal care items.
Providing support to students
We collect products to help disadvantaged students at our local schools through our Backpack Program, and donations to the Family School Resource Center and FUEL NKU, the university’s free pantry program.
Sharing the Christmas spirit through White Gift
By “adopting” local families and providing gifts and groceries, we help make the holidays a little brighter for local families who are struggling financially.
We support local and global missions.
• Through our donation to SONKA, we support a variety of community outreach programs at our sister church, Washington UCC in Cincinnati.
• Through our annual contribution to Our Church’s Wider Mission, we help fund the work done through UCC Associations and Conferences, and in the national and global church.
In addition, we collect several items: printer ink cartridges generate for money for the Pastor's Discretionary fund; pill bottles are recycled to dispense medications in developing countries; and soda can tabs to benefit Ronald McDonald House.
