Be the Church on Sunday, August 2.


The motto is: “Don’t just go to church. BE the Church.” And on Sunday, August 2, that is exactly what the twenty-one churches of the Plain City Church Fellowship are asking their congregations and the Plain City community to do. Be the Church. Many of the churches are canceling their services to instead carry out charitable activities within Plain City and the surrounding areas.

If you would like to get involved, you can gather with other participants in Plain City at 9:30 am at Jonathan Alder High School, 9200 US Route 42 South, in the main gym on Sunday, August 2. There will be a brief period of worship and prayer and then participants will spread throughout Plain City to partake in service projects.

There will be special projects at the Green Meadows and Canaan Community trailer parks, the Plain City Food Pantry, and at Edgewater Place Assisted Living. Additionally, this year, the “back to school clothing store” will be held in the Daily Needs Assistance (DNA) Community Center in the old elementary school (340 West Main Street). Donate gently used kids’ clothing and shoes to DNA on Wednesday nights from 6-8 pm or Saturday mornings from 8-10:30 am. These clothes will then be given to those who cannot ¬†afford to buy new back-to-school clothes.

DNA is also holding a school supply drive and is asking for people to donate NEW backpacks for kids 4-18 years old beginning on August 1 (see the flyer below). You can also keep up with what is going on with DNA on their Facebook page HERE.
