You've heard of loitering, right? We put a spin on the concept of loitering and try to make it positive. We have decided to try to be intentional about meeting our neighbors. We go door to door as ambassadors for our church, introducing ourselves and reaching out to our neighbors and the surrounding community. Join us every Thursday at 4 PM. We meet at the church.
Once each month during the summer First English joins our partner congregations to host a community block party on a Friday evening. Food, music, games and celebration of community mark our events. Thank you to block party sponsors Bexley UMC, Epiphany Lutheran, and Lord of Life Lutheran.

Join us for community dinner on Thursday evenings at 6:00 P.M. Doors open at 5:30 for fellowship. There are separate activities for kids which take place both before and after the meal. Each week the meal is provided by a different partner congregation.
Volunteers are here each Thursday in the Advocacy Center starting at 5:30. They are here to provide assistance to those seeking employment, benefits, and other local resources which promote healthy living.

Sunday Morning Community Breakfast
