What is a Faith Network? One definition of network is "An extended group of people with similar interests or concerns who interact and remain in informal contact for mutual assistance or support". Within many of the Churches of God, there is a strong framework of common belief and interest. Further, there is a desire to assist and support one another, following the mantra of "cooperation without control". The Church of God Cincinnati & Lexington seeks to work together with our brothers and sisters in Christ to help strengthen our common faith.


Work Projects

Both the Cincinnati and Lexington congregations work to help others in their local communities and elsewhere. Camp Outreach held a week long effort to repair homes in Georgetown, Kentucky during the summer of 2005. Later that year Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, so members from Cincinnati and Lexington caravanned to Gulfport, Mississippi to assist with work projects there. Both congregations continue to actively support and take part in Camp Outreach projects held throughout the country.

Charitable Support

Members of our congregation, with the help of many in surrounding areas, actively support Matthew 25 Ministries, an international charity organization headquartered here in Cincinnati, OH. From food and clothing drives to organized hands-on volunteer trips, we seek to help people in need around the world through this acclaimed ministry.

In keeping with the admonition in James 1:17 to "look after orphans and widows in their distress", some of our members have created an active ministry called "Dresses for Orphans", which meets once a month to sew clothing for boys and girls in orphanages around the world. Through their efforts, children in Africa, Bulgaria, Burma, Appalachia (USA), Dominican Republic, Haiti, India, Kenya, Liberia, and Nicaragua have received packages of much needed clothing. In addition, our members have worked with Kardias Ministries (in a work now carried forward by Fellowship In Faith Ministries) to assist and support outreach efforts to Sabbath keeping congregations in India.

For many years now, members of the congregation have supported a "sister church" in El Salvador in Central America. From financial support, to prayers, and even visits by some of our congregants, we work to assist those that live in a country less physically enriched than our own.

Since 2011, an organized nursing home ministry has met periodically at various facilities throughout the area to bring song and fellowship to those under care. Beginning in 2014, the Alois Alzheimer Center has agreed to a regular schedule of visits on the second Sabbath of each month, providing a consistent opportunity to serve their residents.

None of these ministries are under the official banner of "Church of God Cincinnati & Lexington". Instead they all feature this consistent theme: create an atmosphere of support in which members can see a need and jump in to help. We can all work together to perform our God-given mission of helping to address the needs of this world.
