We have sent several teams to the school to develop relationships and open our eyes to the great need beyond our community.

ROCUMC combines our efforts with other churches in the area to provide check-in, dinner preparation and overnight volunteers.

Open Doors, a community event focused on preventing and overcoming addictions and encouraging our youth to make good choices in life.
Habitat for Humanity - ROCUMC sends volunteer teams at least four times a year to participate in a home build project.
In addition to these mission outreaches, ROCUMC provides Thanksgiving baskets, Christmas gift cards, and help with emergency needs for many of our neighbors who face difficult times.
James 2: 14-17 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
