Missions at Reynoldsburg Community Church

Missions at Reynoldsburg Community Church includes international service and local outreach. We’re a disciple-making church. We love to reach people both near and far with the good news of the Gospel. We’re building new partnerships and working with old friends in different places of the world to do just that.

Sharing the Gospel in the United States, Cuba, Romania, and Beyond

In Cuba we serve with local house churches to reach local communities. Our service projects often include helping with housing for the homeless and home repairs for others.

In Romania we have a long-standing relationship with a number of leaders in different cities to serve orphanages, refugees, and go into Romanian villages to serve the least and forgotten. The harvest field is truly ripe for the work we do when we become Christ’s hands and feet globally.

We’re also developing our relationships with churches in Africa, Haiti and other areas to add new mission trips in the coming years. If you have a heart to serve in other places and immerse yourself in amazing cultures beyond our borders…come find out more about our international mission opportunities!

Groups from our church have served in Henderson Settlement in Kentucky for several years. Our SOWER participants help build a home that provides hope and shelter for a local resident. Our Gracious, Energetic, Motivated Servers (G.E.M.S.) supports the settlement through daily assignments ranging from sorting clothes, working in the Thrift Shop or Food Pantry, cleaning, or serving in the Greenhouse.

We also serve regularly in our local community

Blessing Box

The Blessing Box in our back parking lot is an outdoor cabinet stocked with non-perishable food items, basic toiletries, baby supplies, and anything else that might be considered a blessing to someone who finds themselves in need. Items are anonymously donated and anonymously received. A simple rule applies – leave what you can, take what you need.

Studies show adults with food insecurity will skip meals or reduce their portions to provide for children in their homes as they wait for payday. Many food insecure families do not qualify for the assistance of food banks, or are hesitant to turn to food banks for assistance due to the stigma. One “bad month” can be enough to plunge a household into food insecurity. Lay-offs at work, unexpected car maintenance, unforeseen medical bills, or an accident on the job can suddenly force a family to choose between buying food and paying bills. This is the purpose of our project – to bridge this gap.

The Columbus Blessing Box project was started in 2018 with just one box and has grown to more than 90 locations in Central Ohio. We estimate that, on average, each Blessing Box is used 5 times a day, so filling our blessing box on a regular basis has the potential to reach hundreds and possibly thousands of people a year! Donations can be dropped off directly in our outdoor Blessing Box or in the bins just outside the Worship Center and Bauserman Sanctuary.

Wesley Groups

Sharing the gospel and serving locally is the heart of our missional faith. We have small group communities (Wesley Groups) that help each other grow as faithful and servant-hearted disciples. Our small groups serve and share in various community-oriented outreaches to love our neighbors. If you’re especially interested in growing your own faith and reaching out to your local community, learn more about our Wesley Groups here.
