REBUILD EVAN'S CREEK RETREAT
Our friends at Evan's Creek Retreat need our help! Their retreat center was destroyed by the wildfires last summer, and the biggest way we can support is through their "work weekends" to rebuild Evan's Creek. Craig Eaton and Steve Bohrer are are taking groups down there a couple Saturdays a month to work on various construction projects.

Our passion is to see every student build a meaningful relationship with Jesus, grow to become more like Him, and live that out in tangible ways.

Hope’s Table is a dinner we serve on Monday nights at Rolling Hills for anyone in our community. Our heart is to provide a bit of rest, friendship, and belonging as we share a hot meal with our neighbors. Rolling Hills Community Groups, families or individuals are invited to join a team to host a meal every other month. People can help prepare a meal, help serve a meal, hosts guests, and help with transportation.
In the past, we have collaborated with several other churches in the area, along with partnering with Washington County, to provide a Winter Shelter for our friends in the community in need of a warm place to sleep at night. This included activities such as: preparing a warm meal, hosting a meal, providing transportation for guests, and hosting guests throughout the evening. Recently, the county has moved to provide overnight shelter services and so the needs for people who are currently without a permanent place to stay are changing. We are exploring what it would look like to serve those in our community in a similar capacity. Sign up here if you would like to receive updates on how the winter shelter proceeds.
WASH & WORSHIP
Every Sunday morning we provide a hot breakfast, and access to showers and laundry services for those in need throughout our community. We also stream our Sunday Gathering for those who would like to worship with us.
Volunteer your time to sort and organize donated clothing that will be given to guests at Hope’s Table, the Shelter, Wash & Worship, or members of the community.

Prison Fellowship trains and inspires churches and communities—inside and outside of prison—to support the restoration of those affected by incarceration.

We believe God has called us to serve the women in our city facing unplanned pregnancies, the children they carry, students who are in desperate need of transformation in their relationships and sexuality, and men and women burdened by the pain of past abortion.
