English Classes are offered in our conference room every Sunday from 9-10:30 am. Taught by church members, students come from Guatemala, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Mexico and more! English learners are always welcome to come and practice their Spanish!
Harlem Avenue/Rosemont Community Interfaith Coalition has grown out of the relationships we have built in the Harlem Avenue (Poplar Grove and Edmondson) area. An outdoor summer camp brings children of multiple ethnic backgrounds together for song, prayer, faith stories and fun. Ongoing events through the year include community movie nights, field trips, and a new reading group for younger elementary students.
40 West Assistance and Referral Center is our local food pantry and emergency assistance agency which assists with utilities and rent for people living in 21229 and 21207. We collect food to stock the shelves and support 40 West financially each year.
The Centsability offering is collected by our children the first Sunday of each month during worship. We set aside 5 cents for every meal we eat and share it with those who are hungry in our community (supports local food pantries, soup kitchens, feeding programs).
My Brother’s Keeper is our local soup kitchen plus a social service agency which helps neighbors find jobs, provides a delicious meal at mid day and more. We send cooked food items or extra fruit, vegetables, milk and meats to be used for lunch.
The Samaritan Women is located on a working farm, and provides supportive housing and programming for women rescued from human trafficking. We plan work days on a regular basis to help out as needed.
Thomas Jefferson Elementary/Middle School sits directly behind our church! We collect school supplies for students, have supported the uniform fund for students in need, and have opportunities to volunteer as tutors, readers, or classroom helpers.
Mission co-workers Mark Hare and Jenny Bent and their family serve in the Dominican Republic. Mark works in agriculture and Jenny in community health programming. We support their work through our annual budget and prayer.
Our service opportunities are organized and supported by the HRPC Justice and Peace team. For more information about how to get involved with this or any of the other ministries at Hunting Ridge, email the church office.
