Jamesville Community Church
Worship and prayer are the basic elements of faith, but these are extended by our outreach and service to others and to our wider community and world. The outreach programs below allow us to better proclaim and share our faith.
Prayer Requests: Prayer requests are integral to our Sunday services and to our caring for others. Any Church member or visitor may submit prayer requests. Prayer requests received by Thursday noon of each week are included in our printed program for the following Sunday's services. During each service Rev. Harrison calls for prayer requests from the congregation as well.

Volunteer Opportunities: Jamesville Community Church is a community of volunteers who share their commitment, time, and talents to enrich the lives of others. There are many, many opportunities for volunteerism within our Church and in programs in the community-at-large which are supported by our Church.
Current volunteer opportunities include helping with Youth Programs, Refugee Program or Meals on Wheels.
Youth Programs: As outlined in our Goals, our Youth Programs are being expanded and enhanced. We are dedicated to sharing our faith, mission, and service with our youth through study, fellowship, recreation, activities, prayer, and love. Please go to our Youth Programs page to see and read about what our youth have done and are doing.
Refugee Program: JCC has sponsored refugees from Bosnia, Sudan (the "Lost Boys") and Somalia. Right now, we are in partnership with the Interreligious Council and several local churches in sponsoring a family of 13 from Somalia ("Bantu" Somalians).
As one might imagine, housing is a challenge for any family of 13, let alone a family on a very tight budget. We are always looking for donations of money and household items. Click here to learn more about the individuals with whom we are working.
Meals on Wheels: Nutrition for the elderly and shut-ins is a pressing problem in our society and our community. Members of our Church work through a Coordinator to support the efforts of our local Meals-On-Wheels Chapter. We work to feed the hungry with food and faith.
If you would like to volunteer for Meals on Wheels, click here to send an email to get involved.
Summer Vacation Bible School: JCC offers a vacation bible school each summer for children ages 6 to 15. It is not necessary to be a member of our Church for your children to take advantage of the fun and activities of our vacation bible school. We typically have over 100 children enrolled.
Bo-Peep Nursery School: Our Bo-Peep Nursery School is a highly respected outreach program, providing social, creative and educational experiences to three and four year old children of the community. It operates from 9 AM to 11:45 AM on an abbreviated Jamesville-Dewitt school calendar. We typically serve between 45 and 50 children.
Student development is the major objective of the program of Bo-Peep. The feedback received from the parents and professional educators continues to be extremely positive. Parents of Bo-Peep students are often graduates themselves! Many of the preschool children and their parents continue to participate in programs at church.
Alcoholics Anonymous: A.A. meets here every Tuesday at 8 PM. You are welcome to attend - but please remember to respect their anonymity.
