One of the greatest gifts you can give is your time.
Volunteer with us!

We love to see our congregation using their gifts and talents to further God’s kingdom. Whether it’s inside or outside the walls of Maranatha, it’s great to see the love of Jesus in action through volunteering!

Church Greeters

Kairos Prison Ministry
A few Maranatha members are active participants and leaders in the Kairos Prison Ministry. On designated weekends, they enter the local prison to share God’s love with a select group of men. They’re always looking for additional volunteers.

If you’re not ready to make that large of a commitment, you can help in many other ways:

  • Baking and sorting cookies; the sharing of home-baked cookies makes a significant impact to the prisoners during their weekend program
  • Helping cook in the kitchen during the weekend program
  • Coloring placemats, posters and prayer links prior to the event
  • Attending the closing ceremony to encourage the men, and show the love of the church
  • Making monetary donation to the program

Daily Needs Assistance (DNA)
The DNA Community Center is a place where area churches, organizations and individuals join hands in the greater Plain City area to show God’s grace and compassion to those in need.

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.
