Serve the World

volunteer banner

First Community Church works with several organizations to offer a wide variety of opportunities for those who wish to donate time and talent outside the church walls.


CATCH Court lunch
On Thursday afternoons, Freedom a la Carte has the opportunity to serve lunch before CATCH Court at the Courthouse.

Community Shelter Board
Volunteer opportunities to help prepare meals as an individual or with your own group. First Community Church has a group that goes every Thursday night.

Friends of the Homeless 
Founded in January 1983 to provide a wide range of services, including housing, to help homeless adults and families move from dependency to self-sufficiency.

Habitat for Humanity
First Community Church is a member of an Adopt-a-House regional Northwest Partnership of Habitat for Humanity MidOhio. There are several volunteer opportunities through this important program!

Heart to Heart Food Pantry
Sign up to volunteer at Heart to Heart Food Pantry. We need your help!

Mat Makers
This group turns grocery bags into crocheted waterproof mats to be given to the homeless. There are several stages in assembling the mats, so it is not necessary to be able to crochet. The group meets in Marble Cliff from 1:00-3:00pm about once a month. Days vary. Contact Joan Talmage for more information. Read an article from the Columbus Dispatch>>

Prison Ministry
We have multiple opportunities to serve those who are incarcerated.

Refugee Task Force
Helps resettle families into the Columbus area. For more information, contact Carol Meyer at 614 718.1831
