Missions

Thank you so much to everyone who attended the recent Dan Holmes concert here at the church benefitting Rock House Kids!  And a special thanks to all that helped with the event by serving as greeters, helping to get the word out, and making soup, sandwiches and other goodies for our fellowship times!

We have other exciting opportunities in April, and we need your help!


Saturday, April 22nd – Serve Day

Please save this date!
Please plan on joining us on this outing to “put feet on our faith” and serve those in need in the Stateline Area.
As you know, our Vertical Focus group has partnered in the past with the Rockford Work Camps organization in Rockford to identify service project opportunities to benefit local ministries.  We are excited to say that on April 22nd, we have a congregation-wide opportunity to participate again in this valuable work!
Our group will be staying together and serving as a team at 2 different locations in Rockford, currently believed to be the Crusader Clinic and Christ the Carpenter United Methodist Church.
All of the specific details will be coming very soon, but plan on leaving from the church in the morning and returning in late afternoon on the 22nd.  We will be making arrangements to car pool, etc so we can travel as a group.

Stay Tuned….and Thank You!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Each shoebox will be packed with love and covered in prayer, bringing the true meaning of Christmas to children around the world.”

 

And THANKS to all that donated items for our Baking for the Brave mission for the month of October! The goodie trays were well received, and it was a joy to bring our THANKS in a simple way to those that serve us so well everyday.

Don’t forget the Mission box out front. Each month the money is split between the Rockton Food Pantry and the Rockford Rescue Mission.
