Armstrong supports a wide variety of mission partners with opportunities for hands-on work as well as financial support.
NEW Ministry devoted to lifting up the spirits of individuals in the community with hand-made prayer shawls!
Experience the sense of purpose that comes from making a small difference in the lives of those who might benefit from a handmade item on their journey to wholeness. Whether it’s a prayer shawl, lap blanket, pocket prayer square, or prayer bear for a child, you do not need to be able to sew, crochet, or knit, to join this new group. There will be many options to help such as attaching prayers and labels, cutting patterns, and packaging.

Habitat for Humanity
After a two-year hiatus, Habitat is back in action at Armstrong Chapel.
Since 2008, Armstrong has partnered with a coalition of churches and Habitat to bring the dream of homeownership to reality for 11 deserving families in Madisonville. This year, Biensant Avant and her daughters are excited, grateful, and anxious to start building "sweat equity" in their new home on Jonathan Ave. in Evanston.
It's time to build! Armstrong will not have pre-planned, specific dates by the church as we’ve done in the past, so each week our volunteers will have the opportunity to meet and share fellowship with members of the other churches as well as the Partner Family. Shalom also provides volunteers on days other than just Saturdays, therefore there will be more flexibility for our volunteers to match up to their individual calendars.
Our next work date is TBA
What Work Needs to be Done? There is a wide variety of jobs and roles, so we are seeking volunteers of any skill level You do not have to be experienced in construction. For those of you who enjoy construction-related work, this is a great opportunity to learn new skills and techniques from experienced professionals. For those with little experience, there will be people to show you what to do. For those of you who may have physical limitations, there are plenty of non-strenuous tasks on the construction site, such as painting, cleaning, materials prep, etc.
Inter Parish Ministry
IPM is currently operating with staff only and food needs are heavy. IPM is able to source food from the Food Pantry at good prices. In one recent week, they provided over 1,000 packaged lunch bundles to help families with kids in school. They are operating drive-through food pick-up at 2 locations. Armstrong is accepting food donations at the Atrium entry. You may drop off without needing to enter the building.
IPM now has a blue clothing donation drop box at the Newtown location (3509 DeBolt Rd 45244). The items are donated to St. Vincent de Paul and IPM receives credit vouchers for their clients to use in the St. Vincent de Paul store. For every 6-7 items of clothing donated in this box, IPM receives a $25.00 clothing voucher.

Connecting you to the child in need. CarePortal is an online platform that brings the needs of hurting children and families in your community to your attention. Caseworkers with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services uncover the needs. CarePortal makes local churches aware, giving them a real-time opportunity to respond. Armstrong has officially registered to be a CarePortal congregation.
Time spent with Care Portal families will always be a team effort. We will spiritually and physically meet the needs that God equips us to do. No guilt if we cannot meet every need. That’s why there are multiple churches in this group. Typically the most important items are a bed, sheets, and blankets. Check out the items on the current list of needs.
