NBUMC partners with a number of local groups to help meet the needs of the surrounding communities. Our work ranges from helping support resource agencies in Columbus through volunteers and donations, to providing meals at local non-profit organizations, and helping others rebuild and repair their lives in the aftermath of natural disasters. If you are interested in getting involved with any of these ministry partners, please contact Pastor Heather Nordgren at 614-268-8626 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center
Join us for fellowship and community by preparing a community meal for 35-40 folks. The CRC Thursday Night Dinner occurs on the second Thursday of every month from 5:15-6:30 p.m. We also provide breakfast every Sunday throughout July & December at 10 a.m.
New Life Community Outreach
A non-profit ministry located in the Short North Church at 25 W. 5th Ave, Columbus, Ohio 43201. New Life serves its clients in three areas: health care clinic on Sunday morning, breakfast ministry on Sunday and Tuesday, and a clothing room ministry open on Sunday and Tuesday mornings. It takes a lot of volunteers to make this ministry a success.
YWCA Family Center
YWCA Family Center dinners are held on the second Tuesday of each month except February. Each year, we serve approximately 3,000 people. North Broadway and Columbus Mennonite Church join together in this ministry effort thanks to wonderful, committed volunteers who provide service, funds, necessary food items, and prayers.
Adult Missions/Early Response Team (ERT)
These mission groups respond both locally and across the country to aid in early response, recovery, and rebuilding efforts. While we welcome anyone who is willing to serve in mission, due to the nature of the outreach, volunteers must be 18 or older to participate. Some disaster response trips (ERT) requires prior certification; others provide onsite training.
This ministry team offers year-round opportunities to learn about and participate in global missions in many different ways. The congregation is encouraged to become involved in mission opportunities including the UMC’s Six Special Sundays; shopping at the SERRV free trade store at the church; and other opportunities throughout the year. We will be looking at setting some global mission trip opportunities for 2018-2019, which we will post as the information comes available.
