Join us this year for our 2022 BAG OF LOVE initiative.

We are partnering with DAVID’S CLOSET to help build DIGNITY BAGS for the homeless in Rockford.

You can drop these items in the box in the church breezeway.

On February 27 we are asking our youth, church families, and Home Circles to gather and construct the bags for distribution to homeless.

Individuals and families will be encouraged to take at least one bag and distribute it to a homeless person here in Rockford. The remaining bags will be distributed by our partners at DAVID’S CLOSET.
