Ministries – Reaching Out with Helping Hands

Christ has instructed us to ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Matthew 22:39). He also wants us to help others, as a way of showing our love for Him, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’  (Matthew 25:40).

Because of these directives, the churches of the Driftless Regional Ministry strive to find diverse ways to minister to and help out our neighbors, whether they be in our local community or other locations around the nation or the world.  Some of our outreach ministries are year-round activities and others happen during specific times of the year.

Feel free to browse through the links below to learn more about the ways in which we are demonstrating our love for Christ by helping our neighbors and letting them know about Christ's love for us.
