Changing the world through love

Love God and love people by serving in missions

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Participating in a mission can be life-changing for you, and for those that you are serving. Jerome Church bases our mission efforts on the Biblical foundation of Acts 1:8, reaching out through missions locally, nationally and internationally.

LOCAL MISSIONS

Church for All People (Downtown Columbus)
Jerome Church partners with the Community Development and Church for All People in downtown Columbus for a number of ongoing and annual mission events. Weekly on Friday afternoons, Soup for the Soul volunteers make and serve soup and other items to homeless and others in the community served by the Church for All People. Jerome Church also serves a Thanksgiving Dinner at the Church for All People each year.
Common Ground Free Store (Delaware)
Jerome Church serves at the Common Ground Free Store in Delaware, Ohio, on the third Tuesday of every month. Volunteers provide and serve food, and assist shoppers with check-in and shopping. To provide food, or to sign up to serve at the next Common Ground Free Store opportunity, sign up through the link below.
The Diaper Angels
The Diaper Angels mission is committed to working to end diaper need in our local communities. The Diaper Angels partner with local organizations such as food pantries, free stores and shelters, to provide diapers to families in need.
Diapers are collected through donations and diaper drives, and are organized at the church and then distributed to various partner agencies in the area. Donations of diapers and wipes are always needed and can be dropped off to the Jerome Church front porch at any time. Volunteers are needed to help with collection, sorting, distribution, and other tasks including seeking funding opportunities and new partner agencies.
Miracle on William Street
During November, Jerome Church partners with the Common Ground Free Store to provide Christmas gifts for families through the Miracle on William Street in Delaware, Ohio. Additional volunteers are needed for this special event to assist families as they shop for Christmas gifts. Sign ups are available online and in-person beginning in October.

Habitat for Humanity

Jerome Church is part of the Dublin Habitat Partnership, a non-profit organization working in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Columbus and other area churches to build affordable homes, empower families, and develop the community. Jerome Church supports this partnership by providing volunteers, financial support and involvement with fundraising events. This occurs at various times a year all year round weather permitting.

This September 11, Jerome Church will be building the walls of a home for Habitat for Humanity in the parking lot at Jerome Church. Register below to be a part of this life-changing mission as we help to provide a new home for a family.
