Servants to the Least of These faithfully provides immediate assistance to those experiencing homelessness in downtown Cincinnati in the form of a hot meal, a sack lunch, and when available clothing items, shoes, and blankets. They offer spiritual support and encouragement through prayer and developing relationships and also connect those they serve with resources. Bethany regularly partners with STLT by going as a group, taking hot sandwiches and warm clothing. All ages, including young children are welcome to help.

Located on Bethany's campus, God's Bounty Garden is a community garden where produce is grown to provide nutricious food to our neighbors in need and is often canned or frozen to cook meals at Power Source. Anyone is welcome to come and help care for the garden or you can participate at home by growing your own produce and donating part of your harvest in the Fellowship Hall Kitchen all season long.

The Faith Alliance is a partnership of local churches whose mission is to eliminate poverty in our community and by our actions demonstrate true Christian love. Bethany works with Faith Alliance to provide food to our neighbors and backpacks filled with school supplies, as well as summer lunches to local students in need.

Hamilton Living Water was founded in 1999 by local United Methodist churches.  Today we work to bring people into active service into the community, provide the means to restore dignity and self worth, offer the tools and guidance for education, moral values, and spiritual growth, and provide a safe place to learn, grow and to care. Bethany senders both financial support as well as encouraging volunteers to work with students after school and to chaperone summer field trips.

Upward Basketball

Upward Basketball is one of Bethany's main community outreach programs. Through basketball and cheerleading, we help teach sports fundamentals, character development, and most importantly, the Gospel message. This season long program requires hundreds of volunteer hours, from coaching to snacks, and everything in between. We'd love to have you help out!
