Our vision is to take what our society has deemed to be outdated, expired, and damaged and use it to help people in our community. We use whatever God places in our hands: food, clothing, furniture, vehicles, mobile homes, housewares, etc. to meet the needs around us. We minister to the whole person. We provide for their physical needs by sharing food, and we meet their spiritual needs by sharing God’s plan of salvation. Each week church volunteers show the love and compassion of Jesus Christ to over 1,600 people. If you need help or would like to help, please give us a call: (616) 866-3999.

Back-to-School Supplies Drive
Now through August 20

For kids, part of the back-to-school excitement comes from buying new crayons, folders, and backpacks. However, many families in our community are unable to provide school supplies for their children due to a crisis in the family or limited income.

We are hosting a back-to-school school supplies drive through Lean On Me. We’ll be collecting supplies from now through Sunday, August 20.

We are looking for:

  • Gender neutral backpacks
  • Scissors
  • Crayons
  • Pencils
  • Markers
  • Colored pencils
  • Spiral notebook paper
  • Children’s glue

You can also give monetary donations. Donations can be dropped in the offering in an envelope labeled “Back-to-School,” or stop at Guest Services. Please make checks payable to Rockford Res.
