But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
Every year at Tri-County Mall, you can follow the smell of hot chocolate and the sound of live Christmas music to Christmas in the City! Our gift wrap outreach is one of our favorite ways to serve Cincinnati by offering free gift wrap (along with refreshments, prayer and music) during the Christmas season.
Every month, City Church hits the streets of OTR to share the love of Christ in tangible ways, offering prayer, food, essentials and much more. Our desire is to be obedient to God & available to those who are hurting or spiritually lost, so that they will encounter the life-changing presence of Christ. We believe God has a special place in His heart for the less fortunate in our society, according to Luke 14:13-14 “But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed.”
Our next OTR Outreach will take place on February 11 at 11:30am. (Park at 1620 Vine Street and meet in the alley for the outreach. )
We will be meeting at City Church on February 10 at 7pm to prepare items for distribution.

Since 2015, committed volunteers have been travelling to Price Hill to offer spiritual and physical nourishment, community, and a safe, loving place for elementary children. Price Hill has become a bastion of poverty, drugs, and gang-related crime in Cincinnati in recent years, and many children are caught in crosshairs of this destructive cycle. We believe the body of Christ can be part of the solution! Building relationships through activities such as games, crafts, stories, drama, and more, we have the opportunity to introduce them the hope that only Jesus can give. Come along and make a difference in the lives of these precious and vulnerable children!
This ministry is not currently meeting on a regular basis. Click the link below to be the first to receive news and updates regarding the Price Hill Bible Club.
Located in Jackson, KY, in one of the poorest counties in Appalachia, the Happy Church is a light shining in the darkness. City Church annually prepares “Happy Baskets” filled with groceries for this community. We also serve during their annual oil change outreach, where families are ministered to with over 100 free oil changes, free bikes, and a car for a deserving family! We invite you to experience the joy of serving “the least of these” in Jesus’ name!
Following short term mission trips, God wrecked their hearts for the poor in Nicaragua. They return to join the ministry team of New Life Nicaragua, where Jesus Christ is at the center. The Mohrs will be involved in the following areas of ministry.
- Orphan care with a nutritional emphasis for abused, abandoned, and broken children.
- Social justice projects that are centered around discipleship, skill training, and building homes for the poor.
- Robust summer internship programs.
- Year-round short term mission teams.
They would love to connect with you and share their passion and vision for the work in Nicaragua!
Because of the recent Ebola crisis, international attention has been brought to this impoverished nation. At City Church, we are grateful to have a rich heritage of extending a hand into multiple ministries in this region. Working closely with our missionaries – Jen and Steve Butwill, we have most recently been privileged to provide a new birthing room at the Po River Medical Clinic (notice the City Church orange on the walls!), and to support this life-giving effort through our prayers, giving, and going! We believe God has a love for the people of all nations, and we have a mandate to “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature” Mark 16:15.
