More than 700 OCU Students Pay It Forward

More than 700 Ohio Christian University students paid it forward by serving the local church and community last week during OCU’s annual Church Service Day. Student teams assisted with landscaping, painting, cleaning, organizing, and general maintenance projects at 44 locations in Pickaway County and the surrounding areas including the Ted Lewis Museum, the Pickaway County Welcome Center, Crossroads Church, First Baptist Church, and Heritage Nazarene Church. 

At Ohio Christian University, we make paying it forward to the community a priority. The local church and community has been instrumental in OCU’s growth and success because of that we know that we can never truly give back, but we can definitely pay it forward.

Many community members expressed their appreciation for the OCU students. Vicki Kohli, a seven-year board member at the Ted Lewis Museum, expressed her heartfelt thanks to the three-student team for “sprucing up” the museum. The volunteer-based nonprofit is open on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the year and during the entirety of the Pumpkin Show. 

In a thank you note to the university, Bea Dorman, a volunteer at the Pickaway County Welcome Center wrote, “Let me tell you how please we were with the work OCU students did around the Welcome Center today. It was a pleasure having them for the morning and amazing how much work gets done when everyone is working on a project.”

Ohio Christian University’s students are Trailblazers committed to making a difference — in this community and around the world.
