Two Bluffton congregations receive local funding

St. Mary's Catholic, First Mennonite, receive Activate Faith Community Challenge funds

Two Bluffton churches are among 13 Allen County congregations to receive Activate Faith Community Challenge funds from the Activate Allen County this fall.

First Mennonite will receive funding to support multi-age physical activities and make options accessible to its congregation through partnership with the Bluffton Family Recreation Center.

St. Mary’s Catholic Church, through its preschool, will use its funding to increase the children’s access to physical activity by providing appropriate and meaningful activity equipment.

The Activated Faith Community Challenge is an opportunity for Faith Based Organizations to increase their support of the health and well-being of their constituents. 

The challenge provides technical assistance, financial support and additional resources for a healthier organization.

The Activated Faith Community Challenge is a partnership between Activate Allen County and West Central Ohio Health Ministries. West Central Ohio Health Ministries is a partnership between Lima Memorial Health System, Mercy Health and Allen County Public Health. 

The Activated Faith Community Challenge was open to all faith communities in Allen County and the surrounding region.
