Each program within the Lutheran Social Services Network of Hope is unique and diverse, serving a different function in achieving our mission of creating a better world by serving people in need. We are always striving to restore lives and communities, one person at a time. Stop by the COhatch Library location where Lutheran Social Services will have several shopping bags to decorate and learn more about their organization. And, weather permitting, a BOUNCE HOUSE!

Thank you to COhatch for their continued support of The Old Worthington Partnership.




Each month on the first Wednesday from 5:00-8:00 p.m.

On the first Wednesday of each month Worthington will be alive with activity. Shops will stay open late, and there will be live entertainment on Dewey’s plaza. Local lifestyle and coworking company, COhatch, will sponsor and participate in the series.

COhatch will organize a different monthly service opportunity for the community. Each month brings a new theme and a new community involvement opportunity. Activities will take place either at one of COhatch’s two Worthington locations or in its mobile workplace trailer, Mobi.

The merchants in Old Worthington will program their own specials during these monthly events, and each 1st Wednesday will be designated a DORA event. Alcoholic beverages that are available to be purchased in to-go cups at one of the seven establishments in the district so guests can explore the shops and activities.
