Serve Breakfast at Church for All People

Church of the Messiah has a long standing ministry with Church For All People. On the third Sunday of each month, Messiah families prepare, deliver, and serve breakfast to ~130 neighbors at the Church For All People. For many of these folks it may be the only meal that they receive that day. We provide 10 casseroles, two large trays of Corned Beef Hash, three gallons of milk, apple juice, and orange juice, bananas, seasonal fruit, and paper products.  Breakfast servers arrive by 8:20AM, breakfast is served from 8:30AM, and worship follows afterwards at 9:15AM. To learn more about supporting the breakfast ministry, contact Mickey Cox 614-893-1569 or click on the link to signup  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/church81

4th Friday Community Outreach

Westerville 4th Friday Volunteers

The Westerville Visitors Bureau coordinates a community event of food carts, entertainment & extended hours for uptown retailers on the 4th Friday of every month from April to September. This year the city will be closing State Street at the north end of Messiah (Home Road will remain open) to the City Hall complex.  Messiah will again be offering hospitality through the use of its rest rooms, glass of lemonade or water, and endless smiles and kind greetings. With expected additional foot traffic from the street closure we're looking for a couple more individuals each month to support our existing base of faithful volunteers. If you're interested in assisting with any of the 4th Fridays, please contact Sue Jones at 614-895-1078 or westervillejones@aol.com.

Steps of Faith 5K Run/Walk & Food Drive

Join us this September for our 7th Annual Steps of Faith 5K Run/Walk & Food Drive at Alum Creek Park off of Main St in Westerville.

Steps of Faith 5K is a community event celebrating all abilities—whether you are able to run, walk, or wheel your way to the finish line. Steps of Faith was inspired by a central Ohio Run For God community with the simple desire to glorify God in all that we do. The event is an opportunity to encourage one another in fellowship to run our race (Hebrews 12:1). This year’s race carries additional meaning as part of the 200th birthday celebration of Church of the Messiah United Methodist. The event will take place not far from the original gathering site for this congregation along Alum Creek.

NEW THIS YEAR, a Food Drive is being organized at the race by Drew Reed, a scout from Boy Scout Troop 560 as his Eagle Project.   Participants and spectators are invited to bring food items. Collected food items will be donated locally to the food pantry at the Westerville Area Resource Ministry (W.A.R.M.). Our goal is to collect 2,000 lbs of food for our 200th celebration. 

Music at the event will be provided by 104.9 The River!

All race proceeds will be distributed by Church of the Messiah United Methodist to support The Heinzerling Foundation and Bradley’s House of Hope, both working to engage & develop individuals with disabilities in a loving & nurturing environment.
