To Glorify God through the good works of the people and friends of the UMC of Macedonia, Ohio
We will be working with the Rockford Work Camps (RWC), a program of Rockford Urban Ministries, (RUM) in Rockford, IL.
Our mission statement is: To transform lives by ministries of social justice. RWC is a faith-based, non-profit ministry providing volunteer labor to help better our city’s low-income neighborhoods, food pantries, homeless shelters, parks and environmental protection areas.
• Construction Projects (Safer, Warmer, Dryer)
• Service Projects (Food Pantries, Shelters, Clinics and Parks)
• RWC focuses on doing ministry “with” others. Not on, to or for them.
