COVID-19 Community Engagement Needs

Vision:

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.
