Our vision for Washington United Church of Christ is a partnership with Camp Washington to create a community that is safe and clean, where people have enough food, decent housing, opportunities for education and work, and live in an environment that nurtures all families.
Washington United Church of Christ’smission is to help make that vision reality by doing what Jesus taught - to minister together with our neighbors in ways that improve lives physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Washington United Church of Christ is a worshipping congregation and a "mission church," dedicated to providing outreach ministries to our neighbors in Camp Washington and surrounding low-income neighborhoods.
Our outreach ministries include:
Camp Community Café, serving a free lunch from 12-1 p.m. Monday-Thursday to all who attend.

Homework Club, after-school tutoring, from 4:15-5:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday. Students receive a light meal before tutoring begins.
Community Meal, served one Thursday a month at 5:15 p.m. Dates vary.
