In His Name
Every second Saturday at 9:00 am Berean hosts the In His Name ministry, a part of TEAM Rochester. In His Name is a food distribution ministry, with the mission of "providing food in the name of Jesus Christ to those in need." Boxes of food worth approximately $50 are provided for a nominal cost of $10. No signup is needed to volunteer and this is a great opportunity to come together and help sort food, pack boxes, fellowship with one another, and provide the love of Christ in a very tangible way to those in need in the community.

New Life Family Services
The Berean Outreach Team supports New Life Family Services, an organization in Rochester which counsels people on the sanctity of human life. They compassionately open their doors and hearts to women and men who believe abortion is the "only" solution to an unplanned pregnancy. Through practical and spiritual counseling, they provide education and support with the hope each client will make a life-affirming decision for their unborn child.
Each January baby cribs are placed in the lobby at Berean with tags listing items needed by New Life Family Services. These items include such things as diapers, blankets, postage stamps, etc. Please consider taking one of the tags and replacing it with the needed item.
Camp Victory is a ministry accomplished through an evangelical Christian camping and retreat facility that serves the surrounding community. The ministries and programs are to provide an environment for evangelism, discipleship, and leadership development, through life changing encounters with creation, truth, and caring relationships. The outreach team provides financial support to Camp Victory and many Berean members volunteer at the camp throughout the year. For more information contact one of the outreach leadership team members.
Throughout the year it is our desire to love our neighbors as ourselves. We welcome our neighbors to use our facility and to join us as in other activities as well. Some of these events include the Neighborhood's National Night Out, Fall Festival and a Winter Jazz Fest. It is our desire to come alongside our neighbors and meet their needs as best we can. If you would like to participate or serve in any of these events, please contact Paul or Lynn Larsen.
