Rockford Rescue Mission

Rescue + Recover + Restore. The Rockford Rescue Mission shares hope and help in Jesus’ name to move people from homelessness and despair toward personal and spiritual wholeness. Every year we host a worship service and dinner at the Rockford Rescue Mission. The service often includes music from our worship band and dance performed by our dance ministry team.


Holiday Food Baskets

We collect and distribute food for our holiday baskets for both Thanksgiving & Christmas. This year we will again coordinate the distribution of several food baskets for each holiday to those in need. Donations of non-perishable items include canned vegetables, canned fruit, cranberry sauce, gelatin dessert, boxes of instant mashed potatoes and instant stuffing mix. Monetary donations for perishable food is also needed. Food items can be put in the collection bins by the front door. Monetary gifts can be put in the offering and marked “holiday baskets.” Extra non-perishable food will be given to a local food pantry. Thank you in advance for your participation.
