We are called to do mission and outreach as servants of the Lord. This includes the Presbyterian offerings throughout the year as well as projects supported by Bath Church.
We contribute to feeding the hungry through the local FISH pantry as well as donations to churches who host monthly dinners.
Each year we collect money for Heifer International projects benefiting those around the world. We hear the call and send monetary donations to those in need of flood relief in other states. We have been very active in collecting school supplies for local schools so that teachers don’t have to purchase them using their own personal funds. We also participate in the adopt-a-family program at Christmas time, Kairos Prison Ministry and The Dayton Humane Society to mention a few. We are always ready to reach out to others whether it is in our community, across the state or across the world.
"For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me."(Matthew 25)
Bath Church is also the leader in the Miami Valley Presbytery in the Third Thirty; started 6 years ago by a member of the Church, the Third Thirty looks at the plethora of things we need to address as we turn 60 and head towards 90. Meetings are every 6 weeks or so and cover the art of aging gracefully, wisely and spiritually and accepting the realities of growing older. The Third Thirty energizes us to recognize the decisions we need to face and make, and helps us find the faith and courage to do so.
