It is our desire to serve children and families who are in crisis in order to meet real needs; including sharing the hope we have in Jesus. Throughout scripture we see that God’s people were marked by a distinct call to care for the poor and marginalized. James 1:27 says, “Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” We invite you to join us by giving, going, and praying for the hurting and vulnerable in our city. There are several ways to participate below. By far our greatest need is for those who will deliver items and relationally connect with the recipients.

School Supply Drive for Taft Elementary

We have been given an amazing opportunity to serve families in our community by providing school supplies to a local school, Taft Elementary. We will be partnering with Christ Hospital and Preston Brown (of the Cincinnati Bengals), and other Uptown area churches to bless local families and teachers! We want the local CHURCH to be well represented! When we work together to solve a real problem for our neighbors we speak unity into our neighborhood.

Here are the supplies we are collecting:

  1. 240 Packs of 24 ct. Crayons
  2. 305 Composition Notebooks

We will have donation bins available in the Cafe and the Great Room on August 4th and August 11th. The items taken to the packing station on August 14th.

For those interested in getting more involved in this School Supply Drive – Save These Dates:

  • August 14th 10am: Pack the Packs Day. Come help us load the back packs with all the supplies, and get them ready for the first day of school Bring your kids!
  • August 19th 7am: Prayer meeting outside Taft Elementary. Buses begin to arrive at 7:30. We would like to line the drive with prayed up volunteers to cheer for the kids and help hand out back packs etc.
