First UCC begins our 11th year as a host congregation for IHN in 2021. We are pleased to collaborate with 10 other religious congregations in the College Hill area. We house families who are homeless for four weeks each year here and four weeks at College Hill Presbyterian Church. In addition, we assist at Grace Place in College Hill during the summer when IHN uses the house. For more information, contact IHN offices at 513-471-1100.

Fishes and Loaves began in 2010 when a couple of active families decided they needed to have more time around the dinner table together. The dinner and fellowship have evolved into a community outreach that is open to all. Dinner is usually on time and if it isn't, consider that extra time an opportunity to meet someone new!

Our Whole Lives, together with Sexuality and Our Faith, helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their relationships, health and behavior in the context of their faith. It equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture. It provides not only facts about anatomy and human development, but helps participants to clarify their values.
