  • Storehouse for Jesus Food Pantry

    Cathy Smelich

    We partner with the Pataskala Church of the Nazarene and Etna UMC to provide a food pantry for low income families in Pataskala. We believe that Jesus has called us to care for the poor and are looking for people who share this calling.

    Our team of volunteers staffs the food pantry on the 1st & 3rd Thursdays of each month from 6-8 PM. We chat with clients, help them navigate the pantry, and pray with them. The pantry is located at the Pataskala Church of the Nazarene, 8100 Hazelton-Etna Rd in Pataskala.

    Jeff Hammond

    ENLACE has been equipping churches to transform communities in El Salvador since 1993. Over a 10-year period, they train and coach church leaders to work with the community to develop sustainable health, infrastructure and community economic development projects.

    Each year we send a team of hardworking, dedicated individuals to El Salvador to complete a building project. In 2012, we helped to provide a new house for a grandmother and her grandchildren. CLICK HERE for more information about ENLACE.

  • Community Service Projects

    Our church wants to be a positive presence for Christ in our community. We strive to do this by supporting neighborhood organizations and helping to complete needed renovation projects. In the past, we've renovated the basketball courts at Foundation Park; participated in the community clean up day, picking up litter along Watkins road; and staffed the concession stands at the Watkins homecoming game.

  • Women's Ministry

    Our women's ministry is dedicated to building and developing deeper relationships with each other and with God. In addition to other special events just for the ladies we periodically host a Women's Breakfast that consists of food, fellowship, and a story from someone's life. We hope you'll come check out one of our events and get connected with some other Christian women.

  • Men's Ministry

    Our men's ministry is dedicated to building deeper relationships with each other and with God as well as developing leadership in the church and in the family. In addition to other activities we periodically host a Men's Breakfast that consists of lots of food and fellowship. Check out the men's ministry to make new friends and grow stronger in Christ.
