Short North Church to host monthly pop-ups

The Columbus Dispatch - - Faith&values -

Short North Church, for­merly New Life United Methodist Church at 25 W. 5th Ave., will soon re­open as a brand new church.

The church closed in May, af­ter strug­gling with a dwin­dling mem­ber­ship, with the in­tent to ren­o­vate, re­brand and re­open as a branch of North Broad­way United Methodist Church.

The hope is that the church will open in spring or sum­mer. Un­til then, the church is host­ing monthly pop-ups around the Short North.

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 21, the church will hold a Love Alive Pop-Up at the ac­tual church site, where peo­ple are in­vited to help clear out the church and en­joy a com­mu­nal lunch. The com­mu­nity is also in­vited to pur­chase any items in­side the church that need a new home, for what­ever price they want to pay with all pro­ceeds ben­e­fit­ing hur­ri­cane re­lief ef­forts. To vol­un­teer at the pop-up, con­tact vick­inich@

The church’s web­site will launch later this month at www. short­
