  • November is North Church MOnth!

    Click Here to Sign-Up to Volunteer

    A group of volunteers are needed on Sundays in November, from 9:30 am to 1:00 p.m., to support the ministry and mission of North Presbyterian Church, a small vibrant congregation serving the urban core of Cleveland. The men, women, and children at North Presbyterian offer joyful worship praise Sunday after Sunday, as they deal with with issues related to poverty, mental illness, violence, and addiction. North shares its space with Lutheran Metropolitan Ministries, a social justice and advocacy ministry of Lutheran denominations in the Cleveland area.  North enjoys partnerships with several suburban congregations of the Presbytery of the Western Reserve. Volunteers will worship with the community gathered and help prepare and serve the meal that takes place after worship.  6 to 8 volunteers are needed for a Sunday.  

    Location: 4015 Superior Ave, Cleveland, OH 44103

  • Bridges to Batey 105

    A Mission partnership in the Dominican

    We have been engaged in ministry with the people of the Dominican Republic for thirty years, working primarily through El Hospital General El Buen Samaritano. In 2014 we committed to a twenty-five year partnership with Batey 105, a local village in the heart of the sugarcane fields.  As we work with the people of Batey 105, we are focusing on relationship building and faith sharing, improving life in the Batey, promoting justice, and improving social and economic mobility.

  • Greater Cleveland Congregations

    Greater Cleveland Congregations (GCC) is a non-partisan coalition of faith communities and partner organizations in Cuyahoga County working together to build power for social justice. GCC unites people across lines of race, class, religion, and geography to promote public, private and civic sector actions which strengthen and improve the quality of life of our neighborhoods. Fairmount is a founding member of this coalition and has been an active participant.   Contact Ulrich Hopfer.

  • Refugee Task Force

    A year ago, in response to the growing international refugee crisis, we made a commitment to support the effective resettlement of local international refugees.  Our ministry continues to grow. Volunteers are always needed. Contact Pastor Derek.
