Our vision is to take what our society has deemed to be outdated, expired, and damaged and use it to help people in our community.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 spirtual 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.

Winter Clothes Drive

Winter Clothing Drive

Lean on Me is an outreach ministry through Rockford Res. Each week, we have the opportunity to reach over 1000 people in our community through practical means. This year we have a great opportunity to assist this ministry just by sharing some of the extra items that hang in our closets that we’re not planning to wear again.

We will be hosting a drive to collect winter clothes apparel for Lean on Me to distribute to families in need. From December 1 through December 16, we will have portable collection bins in the church lobby for any gently used – or new – winter items you may have. All sizes will be collected.

Examples include:
Snow pants
Under armour

Clothing and monetary items can be donated on Sundays or throughout the week. All gifts are tax deductible and forms are available at the the event table in the lobby. Monetary donations can be made at the event table, by designating “Lean on Me Clothing Drive” on your offering envelope, or by using our on-line giving option.
