Rise Against Hunger is growing a global movement to end hunger by empowering communities, nourishing lives and responding to emergencies.

The meals we packaged, at our Rise Against Hunger Experience on 10/31/2021, have been shipped in a container totaling 285,120 meals from the Orlando warehouse. The meals will be received by their in-country partner, Children of Vietnam!!

Remember how much fun we had that day?! Let's do it again!  Come join us for some great tunes and fellowship, while providing meals for a good cause.

Save the date!  May 22, 2022 after the 8:45AM Combined Worship Service. We plan to assemble 12,096 meals and need 100 volunteers.

Small groups are vital to spiritual growth.  We invite and encourage you to attend one of our small groups (Adult Choir, Hand Bells, Blanket Ministry, Prayer Shawl or United Methodist Women).  Each group directly enhances the ministry of Otterbein UMC.

Ephesians 4: 11 - 15 tells us what the ministry of the church should be.  11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.  14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.  Our vision is to assist each person in our small groups to grow spiritually.  Come join us!
