The LOVE OF CHRIST THE AMAZING GRACE OF GOD
MADE REAL THROUGH HOW WE LIVE.

A FEW OF OUR MANY MINISTRIES AND OPPORTUNITIES:

Prayer Chain
We have an active group the prays over the various
needs
that come to our attention. If you have a
prayer request, call
and let us know.

"Draw near to Me & I shall draw near to you,
for I AM the source that you seek."

Free Community Meals

We combined our heart for service and love of food 
to become
the first church to offer free meals to the
community. 
This now 
has grown to include many other churches,
each taking a day(s) and 
time(s) to serve a free meal.

Homes of Hope
Through prayer, financial support & commitment 
our church is able to offer a home. Through partnering
with 
"Love INC" area churches and individual volunteers, 
we are able to be a part of offering 
a bridge 
for those who are struggling to gain financial independence.
The families in the program are given mentors, coaches 
and connected with 
resources, such as "Tabor Community Services" 
and "Bridge of Hope" ministries.

OTHER AREA RESOURCES:

Columbia Ministerium
The churches and non profit organizations in Columbia 
gather 
on a monthly basis for the purpose 
of identifying and searching 
for ways to address needs
and identify issues in our community. 
This group partners with other organizations
in order 
to work towards some of these needs.

                

To provide affordable housing in the Historic North End. 
With the assistance of LHOPs "Rehab Collaborative,"  
CHSC acquires, rehabilitates and resells properties
to low to moderate income families. 

Working in conjunction with this effort is  
Columbia's North Third Street Facade Improvement Program 
which works to improve the quality of the housing stock,
refine the gateway into Columbia Borough and enhance the sense
of community pride in Columbia. This aspect of the program
provides financial assistance to those who live in that area
towards making improvements on their home. 
In order to make the program successful, volunteers are needed. 
This committee meets in Salem's education building
on 
the second Wednesday of every month from 7-8:30 pm
and encourage anyone to attend to learn more
about 
this vital program.

the
Columbia Presbyterian Church 
on the 1st Tuesday of the month from 6-8 p.m.
