$1 for one

 one more makes a difference

The beauty of generosity is that it transforms people and connects us to the heart of a generous God. As a church, we want to not only point people to a generous God, but also be an example for people to follow. For every person who walks through the doors on a Sunday morning, we are donating one dollar. If we have 1,000 people who show up over the course of a month, $1,000 is donated. 

$14,132

Has been given since we started this process in June 2019. Check out the organizations and causes we've helped to support below.

Good News Church made a $1,233 donation to Kindway for every person who attended a live stream service on a Sunday morning in May

Kindway, an organization that is investing in the lives impacted by incarceration.

EMBARK’S unique approach provides evidence-based programming prior to their release and critical support as they transition to the Central Ohio community. Because of the unique and comprehensive design of EMBARK, graduates are experiencing tremendous success. Kindway’s partnerships with employers, landlords, and churches have provided the critical support and opportunities needed for successful reentry. For those who completed the EMBARK program inside prison and remained connected one year post-release, <1.5% returned to prison. This is an incredible organization meeting people in one of the toughest places, and showing them that there is always hope.

NEEMA MISSIONS

Timothy & Teresa Nyandika are missionaries in Kisii, Kenya. Timothy and Teresa have already been helping to care for 39 amazing children who happen to be orphans. Yes, 39 orphans! Neema Missions translated “Grace Missions” is something that Timothy and Teresa have tried to support out of their own means, but with Kenya being shut down due to COVID, their jobs and therefore their income has dried up, yet they have still stayed faithful to God and to their care for these orphans.

COLUMBUS DREAM CENTER

Good News Church made a $1,335 donation to the Columbus Dream Center for the number of peak live viewers during a service on a Sunday morning in April. 

 

The Columbus Dream Center provides free, routine outpatient health and wellness services to the medically underserved and homeless in Columbus. Through their partnership with Mount Carmel Health and their Mobile Medical Outreach, they are able to serve many each week with safe, quality care.

Each week at The Columbus Dream Center hundreds of hot meals are served to people in our community by teams from organizations and churches across Columbus. Ever expanding, this outreach, now also includes pre-packed lunch distribution and meals for kids on the weekend.

The Columbus Dream Center seeks to create a second-home like atmosphere for nearby children to grow and develop healthy relationships with volunteers and one another while receiving character building and bible lessons, recreation and nutritious meals. This program’s focus is on building the foundation for children to trust, hope and begin to dream.

At the root of homelessness, addiction and so many other life-controlling issues in our modern world is a lack of a relationship with Christ. So they work to teach people how to get their spiritual needs met by relating to God personally through prayer, Bible study and community.

Their weekly homeless outreach mobilizes teams to reach homeless people where they are, providing them with meals, resources and inviting them into a community where they can learn about God and God’s plan for their life.

Together with hundreds of volunteers and local churches, we host several events each year aimed at helping our neighbors celebrate important holidays and milestones including mother’s day, back-to-school, Thanksgiving and Christmas!
