Local Volunteer Opportunities
Several times throughout the year, the congregation puts together over 200 bag lunches which are delivered to the Open Shelter homeless feeding program each month. In addition to providing lunches, we also collect candles, flashlights, blankets and other items helpful to the homeless clients.
Habitat for Humanity
Dublin Presbyterian Church participates in a consortium of Dublin churches (the Dublin Habitat for Humanity Partnership). For the last 18 years, we have worked on houses throughout the City of Columbus.
For the past several years, we have helped to provide Christmas gifts for families in need within the Dublin community. An anonymous list of gifts is given DPC from Welcome Warehouse, this list is shared with the DPC congregation, and members sign up to purchase these gifts. Once the gifts are purchased, we wrap the gifts for them, and then return the gifts to Welcome Warehouse.
Annual Mission Trip
Over the last 10 years adults and youth have traveled to Maine, Mexico, Louisiana, eastern Ohio, Houston, Pittsburgh, Cedar Rapids, Tuscaloosa, Brooklyn, and West Virginia. These projects have included building entire homes, and home repairs, and making homes handicap accessible. These efforts require much hard work, but the results produce a great deal of
fellowship, teamwork and fun.
Columbus Pride Parade
We march each year in the Columbus Stonewall Pride Parade to show that we are a church where all are welcome! Adults, youth and children are all welcome to march with us!
