Mt. Olive Lutheran Church has partnered with Beyer Elementary School, through Kids Hope USA, to make a positive impact on the lives of children at Beyer. Through Kids Hope USA our members have the opportunity to be trained and paired with an at-risk child in a supportive mentoring relationship. Our partnership with Beyer, however, extends beyond Kids Hope USA and the mentoring of children to being a blessing at Beyer School in a variety of ways.

Rockford RESCUE MISSION
Volunteers have the opportunity to work with the homeless at the mission. We conduct a worship service and serve sack dinners at Rockford Rescue Mission two Sunday evenings during the calendar year.
For more information on the Rockford Rescue Mission, click here.
We aspire to serve ALL people in the greater Rockford area in tangible ways, in the name of Jesus and with His boundless love. To this end we assemble and send out crews of people FREE OF CHARGE to households that have requested our assistance. This help might be anything from yard work, to painting, to cleaning, to minor repairs, etc.
Call 815.399.3171 to be added to the volunteer list. In being added to the volunteer contact list, you are NOT committing yourself to any project, you are simply stating that you would like to be contacted about opportunities to serve as they arise.
Lutheran Church CHARITIES
We regularly partner with Lutheran Church Charities to provide local (northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin) emergency assistance to families suffering from flooding, tornadoes, etc. This work is most typically salvage work, clean-up, and repair.
