THE REFINERY CHURCH

Serve the Church...Serve the City

The Refinery Church is responding to the needs of our church and community. Below are the current opportunities. As we continue to identify new needs and new ways to serve, we will list them here. Check back often!

GIVE

Thanks to your partnership, we have been able to serve our community during this time. Below are some examples of how we have served through your generosity:

• Blessed front line workers such as medical professionals and grocery store workers with meals
• Provided grocery store gift cards to the residents at Buckingham
• Provided snack bags for kids and families near Faith Community Church and Burroughs Elementary in the Hilltop

Continue to give generously of your tithe and offering online via the website, the Refinery Ohio app, or by mail. Additional offerings specific to the Covid-19 crisis can be given through the Disaster & Crisis Relief designation.

LETTER WRITING FOR
THOSE ON THE FRONT LINES

Let’s spread some encouragement and thanks to those working on the front lines during this time!

LETTER WRITING TO
OUR REFINERY FAMILY

Let’s be a source of encouragement to each other! If you would like to be a part of a digital pen pal program to encourage others in our Refinery family, please indicate an interest at the link below. We will pair you up so that you can stay in touch, encourage each other, and pray for each other while we are unable to be together.

BIBLE COMMUNITY FOOD PANTRY

Bible Community Church of the Nazarene runs a Mid-Ohio food pantry the 3rd and 4th Thursdays of the month from 12-3p.m. They serve families living on the west side of Columbus (Hilltop) in the 43228 & 43119 zip codes. Through this service, they help about 150 people per week. Last month the pantry saw over 20 new families for the first time. The expectation is that this number will continue to grow due to the COVID-19 crisis and how many people in the area have been laid off.

The food pantry is in need of non-perishable food items to continue to serve the community.

AMERICAN RED CROSS

The American Red Cross is in desperate need of blood donations at this time. Help to make a difference by donating blood to those affected by COVID-19.
