BENEFITING: Churches United of the Quad City Area
We are a faith- based Church seeking funds to help with the face-lift to our physical church building in lifting the community up by rebuilding the church where in the whole of the community can be addressed. Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church is non-profit organization located at 3934 West Fond Du Lac Ave. The building that we occupy was built in1967 and is in need of much repairing. We have begun re-designing the inside to make it a more user-friendly facility accommodating to everyone, including the elderly, people with disabilities and the disadvantaged. Our mission is to be a servant to the local and broader community. We fell short of funding by trusting several contractors who took the church money and did not fulfill their obligation. We have a half built sanctuary and an unfinished parking lot. We are looking to continue to service the residents in the community by providing services to foster children and mentoring to young adults with children. We also have been proactive in engaging youth on the need for sustainable peace and how youth can participate to avert conflicts, build community and join the fight against violence. In addition to our efforts, we continue to provide outreach to Haiti with food and ministry resources in chipping away at the work that remains to be done. We are looking to extend our efforts by providing a soup kitchen, weekly church dinners, seasonal programs, and community events. Together we can rebuild communities that our need with your help.
