During this time when so many of us are socially distancing, it can feel lonely and scary. Doing something for others is one of the best ways our community continues to live our values - even in a time when we can't physically be together. Here are ways to support our CommUNITY and live out #CometCulture.

Families Facing Economic Hardship

We are so grateful for our community partnersComet Cupboard and Joshua’s Place who are providing additional food and personal care items to families in need. Families may pick up meal kits at Mason Intermediate on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11:30AM-1:00PM and Christ’s Church of Mason, 5165 Western Row Rd, from 5:00pm-7:00pm on Monday evenings.
