Local Mission
Church volunteers can be found at Portage County Clothing Center in Ravenna, Ohio. They are volunteering their time to help people in need.

Portage County Clothing Center

Volunteers from University Church assist the staff of the clothing center on the first Friday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.. We help with the registration of shoppers, the control of merchandise, and the check out process. This is a very rewarding experience for our volunteers.


University Church of Kent, OH is seen volunteering at the local soup kitchen in Portage County.

Kent Social Services

Hot Meals: Volunteers from our church serve the Thursday night Hot Meals program every 9 weeks from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at Kent Social Services.

Lord’s Pantry: We strive to practice mindful shopping habits in our lives.  Each time we go grocery shopping we buy a few extra non-perishable goods.  We, then, place them in a box located at the front of our sanctuary each Sunday as part of our giving.  It’s not hard to do, but it makes a big difference for people in need in Kent.

Habitat the Humanity has received help renovating a house by University Church, formerly Kent Presbyterian Church.

Habitat for Humanity

University Church is a Covenant Church of Habitat for Humanity. We have members who volunteer in many ways, including serving on the board. We keep the ministry in our prayers, and will join with Habitat in their renovation of homes as a community.
