Our Vision

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 clearer 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 the poor, needy, and ostracized – visiting, praying, and meeting their needs on a weekly basis. We want to see the people of our church expand their view of our campus, our city, Christ’s heart, and the life of a devoted disciple.

Engagement Opportunities

HUBBARD MASTREY ELEMANTARY TUTORING
H2O is partnering with King Avenue UMC and Hubbard Mastery Elementary School to supply Reading Buddies. Reading Buddies do companion reading with children, to help them build competence, confidence and enjoyment in reading because children in the state of Ohio are required to pass a reading competency test before being promoted to 4th grade. There are two training sessions in in the Chapel at King Avenue United Methodist Church (299 King Ave Columbus, OH 43201). They are: Sunday, September 245:30-6:30pm and Sunday, October 110-11am. Only one training session is needed–the two dates are being offered for your convenience.
SHE HAS A NAME COLUMBUS MARATHON CLEAN-UP
Serving in the abolition community can look a variety of ways: sometimes it’s painting a drop-in center, other times it’s mentoring a survivor of human trafficking as she attends her first college course. This time, it’s cleaning Columbus. One of our partner organizations, She Has A Name works in education, collaboration, and survivor care. One way we can support them is by cleaning the streets of Columbus after the Columbus Marathon and 1/2 Marathon. If SHAN has 30 volunteers present, the Marathon donates $2,000 to survivor care initiatives. This is HUGE for She Has A Name and allows us to continue investing in survivors of human trafficking.
