Christ announced His ministry by proclaiming His heart to bring good news to the poor, liberty to the blind, sight to the captives, and the Lord’s favor. This call to serve the poor is made clear by many of His teachings, the way He lived His life among the poor, and the way His disciples and church lived out these commands. Our vision is that H2O church would build real, gospel-centered relationships with orphans, immigrants, widows and those in poverty – visiting, praying and gathering with them on a regular basis. We want to see the people of our church grow their understanding of Christ’s love, and the life of a devoted disciple.
COVID-19 COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT NEEDS
John 1:5 (ESV) – “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” While COVID-19 is disrupting our normal activities and keeping us from meeting up (at least in groups and in-person) they by no means need to keep us from stepping up to be Jesus’ hands and feet to our neighbors in need. In a world that is hurting and scared, where people don’t always have a loving community to rely on, let’s be a light through meeting the needs of widows, orphans, immigrants, and those afflicted by poverty. Let’s engage the city of Columbus through meeting these needs.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT DAYS
At least once a month we work with our community partners to engage with the orphans, widows, refugees and those afflicted by poverty in the city of Columbus. Community Engagement Day generally occurs on Saturday and is your chance to learn more about the many organizations in Columbus that have a passion for serving others and a passion for the good news of Jesus.
