Way to BE the Church, East Side! Through your generosity, we:

Collected 10 pallets of non-perishable items at the East Side food drive and donated items to InterParish Ministry, a senior living community Thomaston Woods, West Clermont Wolf Pack Pantry, as well as donated masks to Mercy Anderson.

“The amount of food you provided will allow IPM to continue to serve our most vulnerable neighbors. We broke records in the number of families we serve per day. Our student and senior Power Packs requests continue to grow each week. And with this generous food donation, we won’t have to turn anyone away!”
- Alida Hart, President & CEO of InterParish Ministry

Located in Eastgate next to Jungle Jim’s, we serve communities east of downtown Cincinnati such as Anderson, Amelia, Batavia, Loveland, Milford, New Richmond and other surrounding neighborhoods.

Come as you are

Seriously. This is a real place for real people. Regardless of what you think about God, you are welcome here. In a nutshell, you can wear jeans, or dress up if you want. The coffee is free, so grab a cup before you sit down. The music is great and you’ll hear straight up Biblical truth that you can apply to your everyday life. The rest is up to you.

Greg is a huge fan of Man Camp, and does his best to support Jungle Jim’s pint night. He and his wife Abby have three daughters, Emme, Liv, and Ada. And no, they are not going to try for a boy.
