Local Outreach

We believe in loving our neighbors – that was Jesus’s second greatest command for us after loving God. To be involved with local outreach, contact Micah at mneely@christtherock.org or 920.730.8383 ext. 325. And take a look at these opportunities to serve:

Help for the Homeless: Feb. 12-March 5, 2023 | Drop off donations in our lobby. Donate personal hygiene items to supply local homeless shelters, crisis agencies and school districts. Items needed include: toothbrushes, toothpaste, disposable razors, deodorant, soap, shampoo, pads and tampons for young teens, diapers, baby wipes, laundry detergent, trash bags, and more. Help for the Homeless is offered in partnership with The Family Radio Netword. Thank you for loving our Fox Valley neighbors!

Community Partners | Christ The Rock supports and partners locally with Fox Valley Jail Ministry, Vida Medical Clinic & Support Services, Life Promotions, and Shepherd’s Care to bring the Gospel and love of Christ to the people they serve. If you’re interested in volunteering with any of these partners, email Micah at mneely@christtherock.org.

Christ The Rock Food Pantry | Our food pantry helps meet the needs of 700-1,000+ people in the Fox Valley each year. Anyone in need of food can get started here. If you’d like to help feed the hungry in our community, our food donation shelves are located just inside our main/front doors, Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, Fridays 8:00 am-2:00 pm, and on Sunday mornings.

This One’s for the Girls | Christ The Rock reaches out to women exploited in the Fox Valley’s sex industry. Our point of entry is local exotic dance clubs, where our teams offer the love of Christ, help for trafficked women we encounter, and practical resources and support for those who wish to exit the industry. For more information contact Nancy or Deb.

 

Welcome Refugees

We are starting Good Neighbor Teams in partnership with World Relief to welcome refugees who are resettling in the Fox Valley. Teams help with practical needs, life skills, and most importantly, offering friendship to families who don’t know anyone in their new US home. Teams make a 6-month commitment which involves helping refugees move in and navigate getting to appointments, learning basic needs in their new country.

To be part of a Good Neighbor Team, contact  World Relief: 
svanabel@christtherock.org or 920.840.6924

To donate items: Find details about items refugee families need, and how to have items delivered directly to World Relief, visit their donations website page: https://worldrelief.org/fox-valley/get-involved/donate/
