Ten years ago, Westside Reformed Church started as a small church plant in Cincinnati’s westside. Having grown and planted two churches, they are now preparing to move into our first building, and it is in the heart of Cincinnati. They are in need of external support to renovate it. RMS has partnered with them to help raise that support!
Phase 1 – The property is being given to WRC for free, on the condition that they address two main issues: stabilizing the school building and repairing the steeple. They will fund this $500,000 expense on their own.
Phase 2 – The main building is very dated and needs renovation, e.g., storm windows, a new kitchen, an updated fellowship hall. This is estimated to cost $300,000 and this is what RMS is seeking to help them raise in 2023.
Phase 3 – The school building is in disrepair, but it is vital to having a Christian Education program and accommodating growth. After stabilizing this structure (Phase 1), this will need to be completely overhauled. This phase will cost ~$700,000, and is a three year goal.

PRAY for WRC and their presence in Cincinnati. Pray that this building will allow them to continue to serve God where He has placed them. "...praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints..."-Ephesians 6:18
GIVE financial gifts to help WRC with phases two and three of their capital campaign! Our prayer is that these gifts will have many years of impact on those in Cincinnati and that this property will be a great asset in the further spread of the gospel. This might be a great time to consider gifts of non-cash assets, learn more here!
