Harlem Road Church has vibrant missions and outreach programs led by Judy Sharpe-Kosmatka. We are active representatives of Jesus Christ in our community, our nation, and the world.
SidebySide Outreach Ministry
In partnership with a few other local United Methodist congregations, Harlem Road Church runs ministry programs for the nearby Westerville Estates Mobile Home Community. We sponsor children and families at Christmas, provide school supplies and clothing, teach and support a job creation program (currently involving crochet necklaces), and help in other ways as opportunities present themselves. This is a wonderful way for you to consider serving our community!
Imagine Missions Children's Home in Haiti
Eighteen folks from Harlem Road Church traveled to Haiti for the first time in 2012 to build a shelter house and minister to the staff and residents of Imagine Missions Children's Home, and we have continued to go down there each year since that first trip. Perhaps more importantly we offer the ability to sponsor an orphanage child on a monthly basis and/or help by sending $20/month as part of the "Essentials Club." Over 20 members currently provide monthly support. You can provide support to Imagine Missions by donating at www.imaginemissions.org/contribute or you can learn more by visiting www.imaginemissions.org.
Ronald McDonald House
We collect aluminum pop tabs for Ronald McDonald House. Ronald McDonald House recycles the pop tabs to raise funds for wheelchairs.
Partnering with God Campaign
We collect aluminum cans for the Children’s/Youth Pledge to our Partnering with God Campaign that enables us to serve our local community.
Souders Elementary School
We collect Box Tops for Education to help Souders Elementary, the school that is right around the corner from the church. Many of the children and families helped by our SidebySide Outreach Ministry are Souders students and families.
Next Generation Outreach
Our Next Generation Program holds regular outreach events.
About four times each school year we collect and mail care packages to each of our college students to let them know that their church is always there for them. The newsletter and the Sunday Celebration Folders provide information on when the boxes are available to collect donations.
