Community Outreach

In Our Neighborhood

Get connected to Our Neighborhood

We are connected to our neighborhood in and around Columbia Heights. Following the example of Jesus, we believe in meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our neighbors. We love to eat together. We provide over 500 meals each week and take an active role in caring for our earth through organic composting and community gardening. We also mentor young people and host community forums where we discuss ways to be involved in our community. 

Sunday Community Lunch: September 2022 - May 2023.

After School: Tuesdays and Thursdays: 4:30 - 6 PM (Ages 5 - 18)

Stories from Our Neighborhood Series: One Wednesday a month.
