We partner with local mission organizations right here in Muskegon County who have a similar heart of reaching Muskegon County with the message and love of Jesus. Through our partnership we offer monthly prayer and financial support. We also make an effort to schedule monthly-local mission updates during one of our weekend services. Finally, various community service projects are organized in an effort to assist our local mission organizations with ongoing projects and initiatives.
Local Mission Partners
KIDS HOPE USA
Kids Hope USA builds life-changing relationships one at a time through mentorship and giving individual attention to students at school. Larger class sizes and smaller budgets means fewer adults to connect with more kids. Kids Hope USA sends adult mentors where they’re needed and can make an immediate difference—into schools. Right now, our church is partnering with Fruitport Elementary School to bring this mentorship to kids in our area. We also provide prayer partners for each child-mentor relationship.
The mission of Love INC is transforming lives in the name of Christ through the church. They work in coordination with local churches to provide guidance and assistance to help our neighbors become self-sufficient by extending a hand up, not just a hand out. They provide a strategy to help local churches help their neighbors in need.
BRIDGE TO LIFE
Bridge to Life focuses on the needs of marriage and relational issues for the purpose of reconciling men and women to God and each other. In addition to their work with invidivual marriages, Bridge to Life also provides training and other resources to local churches in a effort to strengthen the marriages within the church.

There is a unique opportunity to unite the body of Christ with the singular vision of seeing the next generation have a chance to respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
KIDS FOOD BASKET
1 in 5 Michigan children are affected by hunger and thousands of West Michigan children are food insecure—they can’t count on having access to good, nourishing food every day. Kids Food Basket is battling the cycle of poverty and childhood hunger by providing sack meals for these kids. They began over a decade ago by serving 125 kids each school day through their Sack Supper program and now serve nearly 8,200 kids each weekday in West Michigan.
