The Ohio Action Circle is now centered at the Hilltonia United Methodist church in the Hilltop in Columbus, Ohio. We are working in partnership with; The Shalom Zone, the United Methodist Church, the Ohio Action Circle, Centro Esperanza Latina and several local organizations on the west side.
In partnership with Centro Esperanza Latina, we are hosting and implementing a Latino immigrant 9-week summer camp for children ages 7-13. The camp is weekdays from June 13 to August 19.
We are seeking volunteers everyday throughout the camp dates. You can join us as an individual, youth group, church/faith group, organization...whatever! This would be great exposure to the immigrant community and west side community in general.
At this point we have 2 shifts: 8:30am-11:30 am and 12:00 pm-3:00 pm. At this point you can choose whichever dates are best for you. Please consider this invitation and think creatively as far as who you can invite to assist us.

“A remarkable thing happens as we find ourselves saying the words of the Divine Praises: ‘Blessed be God! Blessed be his holy Name!’ We came seeking God’s blessing, and now find that we are blessing God! This indeed is the goal of all our worshipping—that we may come to love God better.  And we cannot love God without loving our neighbor, so that in seeking God’s blessing, we are praying that, in blessing us, he will make us a blessing to others.”
— The Rev. Dr. John Macquarrie (1919-2007)
