Birth Certificate Ministry

Wednesdays 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
No Appointment Necessary

Being a downtown church, we see many people in need walk through our doors each week. The majority of our funds for the needy are used to assist people in need to acquire birth certificates needed to access state and federal services and to enroll children in school. A special offering to support this ministry is received on the fourth Sunday of Advent.

Starting April 7, 2023, Ohioans who are 17 years and older can receive a state ID card at no cost from the BMV. In light of this policy change we are now focusing our ministry on helping clients obtain birth certificates.
