Hope supports ministries and missionaries of Reach Global and other agencies on a lcoal and global level. In addition, we support local ministries including Campus Crusade, Stateline Pregnancy Clinic, Rockford Rescue Mission, and the Belvidere-Boone Country Food Pantry. They minister to college students, young women with unplanned pregnancies, the homeless, and those with other basic needs. We also support overseas missionaries including some involved with church planting, evangelism, discipleship, seminaries, and medical ministries.
Our desire is to do more than send financial support. Prayer support of our missionaries is made possible through regular communication with them.
We also look for opportunities to send our youth and adults on short-term ministry trips. When missionaries are on home assignment, we invite them to meet with the Mission Team and to make a presentation to our Adult Bible Fellowship groups, Sunday school classes, and our Awana Club.
The Mission Team invites you to attend these presentations as they occur throughout the year. You may not know who is speaking, but you will be challenged and blessed to meet them and learn how God is using them to reach people for Christ.
WHITE CROSS is our hands-on way of helping others in need. This includes work days where women make hand made items such as layettes and quilts for the needy in Democratic Republic if the Congo and the Roscoe area. White Cross workdays are the first and third Tuesdays of each month from 8:30 AM to noon. Please contact the church office for more information.
