Saint Charles Community Impact

Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Galatians 6:2

God has uniquely placed you within a certain geographical location. The neighborhood you live in. The corner store you shop at. Regardless of where you live, you have people all around you who are hurting and need Jesus through your hands and hearts. 

Your St. Charles campus is located at 37W100 Bolcum Road and therefore called to make an impact for God's Kingdom in this specific community. Through Community Impact, you have the ability to serve and reach people others might not ever cross paths with. 

Covid-19 Responses

The Coronavirus has touched all of us in one way, shape, or form. Our hope is that while we continue to move towards reopening in our communities, you may continue to be the hands and feet of Jesus as you love and serve our immediate neighbors well.

How to Get Involved

At Risk Youth

By walking alongside students at the elementary level, we can participate in their development through programs like Kids' Hope USA. We have partnered together with local elementary schools Davis and Richmond to provide mentors throughout the school year. To serve with Kids' Hope at either or these schools: Click Here.

One Collective is a global non-profit that works in communities around the world and is passionate about making sure no one is invisible and everyone has access to food, freedom, and forgiveness. Locally, our partner is focused on connecting people and resources within our community so that no one is invisible and people are empowered to solve problems. To serve with our partner at One Collective: Click Here.

The Mission of Fox Valley Christian Action is to help the local church, us, serve under-resourced communities around them. Their passion falls in line with ours, which is to see the power of the Gospel transform lives of families living in our local public and subsidized housing communities. To serve with FVCA: Click Here.

 


Single Parents

Often single parents face legal situations and they do not have the means to cover even a consultation fee. Administer Justice seeks to serve through legal consultation for civil matters and providing spiritual support through Client Advocates.

Christ Community Church partners with Lifespring, a safe place to recover for single women and women with children.  To learn more about how you can get involved, visit their website:

Under Resourced

The Rehabilitation Program at Dunham is designed for individuals whose health has been impacted by illness, injury, or a recent operation.  Typically, on the 2nd Saturday of every month as we have a time of worship, playing games, and visiting with the seniors who call Rosewood home.
