Rock Hill exists to multiply gospel-centered disciples, small groups, and local churches that bless the city, the region, and the world. Therefore, our local outreach ministry team seeks to mobilize everyone in our church to compassionately engage in ministry to the practical needs of those in need in our city and region while graciously passing on the good news of all that Christ has done to save our souls. We feel especially called to minister to the needs of those in the Lincoln Park community in a holistic way. We bless our city through (1) intercessory prayer, (1) empowering relationships with people in need and (3) compassionate engagement in local outreach in the following ways:
God has called us to care for orphans in our city. To that end, Rock Hill provides a supportive network to foster families, respite care and in some cases even material support (meals, diapers, toys, etc.). Rock Hill also networks foster families together for mutual encouragement and support while encouraging others in our church body to prayerfully consider this essential ministry in our city.

God has called us to minister to the needs of the oppressed in our city. To that end, Rock Hill has entered into a partnership with Christians from area churches who are engaged in fighting the sex trafficking industry in our city. The Love Justice team gathers the 2nd Friday of every month to pray and explore ways to care for victims of this industry in our city.
Lincoln Park Hope Center

God has called us to minister to the material needs of the poor in our city. To that end, Rock Hill is a sponsoring church of the Lincoln Park Hope Center. The Hope Center seeks to serve the poor of Duluth in Jesus’ Name and to be a bridge for the poor to the church and for the church to the poor by being a hope-filled gathering place where people can meet Jesus, be helped, and be a help to others.

Therefore, Rock Hill has partnered with the Water’s Edge Community Church and Second Harvest to provide residents in our community with a warm meal every Saturday from 11 AM to 1 PM. Rock Hill members serve the meal and interact with guests the 1st and 4th Saturday of every month.

God has called us to minister to the souls of prisoners in our city. To that end, a team of Rock Hill members leads Bible studies on Sunday evenings at the state penitentiary and on Friday evenings at NERCC. We also seek to help Christian ex-convicts transition well back into society by assisting them in their search for housing, employment, and Christian community.
Northern Expressions Arts Collective
Contact: Leanne Weber – 218.789.NEAC (6322) | email@example.com
God has called us to minister to the social needs of families in our community. Therefore, Rock Hill has partnered with Northern Expressions Arts Collective (NEAC) to host Community Action of Duluth’s Family Night Out gatherings in our community the 2nd Thursday of every month. Rock Hill also encourages our members to support NEAC with their annual Egg-Splosion event the day before Easter. This is an “all hands on deck” outreach event! Kids and families learn new egg-dyeing techniques, are introduced to the Gospel message and are invited to attend local churches on Easter Sunday.
