Here at Christ the Rock our Core Calling is to reach and restore the hurting to wholeness in Christ; not just inside our church walls, but outside as well.
Christ The Rock's 4,000-plus members and visitors come from each of the 18 unique communities that make up our Fox Valley--sometimes called the "Fox Cities." Within those cities are neighborhoods and homes where we believe God has you living for a purpose: To make Him known. Because Church isn't just about coming to a building; it's about being the church where you live.
Want to help?There are many opportunities around the Fox Valley where you can make a difference by meeting people's practical and spiritual needs with the love and compassion of Jesus. Where has He called you?
Need Help? If you or someone you know is in need of food, clothing or other basic needs, we hope this a resource for you to find such services provided in an atmosphere that also helps satisfy your spiritual needs.
