The Church For All People is located in Columbus, Ohio at 946 Parsons Avenue. As indicated by its name, this church is intended to be a home for all people. It is a Methodist church, grounded in the Methodist (Christian) tradition, yet its leaders go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome. The church is in a location that I believe is most beneficial for fulfilling its mission. It is in a neighborhood that looks old and a little run down; you can tell the buildings have not been upgraded in years. But the church itself is huge and draws large crowds. The church really aims to have a positive impact on the surrounding community. In addition to offering daily worship services (except Thursday), the church offers a number of services that are beneficial for the people of Columbus. Its social mission makes it unique. The church has a free store where people are welcome to come grab essentials items like household goods, clothing, and food. They also have many volunteers who help out with their affordable housing program, after school program, and even offer job opportunities. They offer free bikes for people who have trouble getting to work. They offer a healthy eating and living program that helps people improve their mental and physical health. In all these ways and more, the church is trying to change its community for the better. That is why so many people love it and volunteer their time to it.
