SAUK VALLEY UNITE SERVICE CAMP. This yearly camp is the combined effort of six churches in our area: Bethel Reformed Church, First Christian Church, First Presbyterian, Immanuel Lutheran, St. John’s Lutheran, and St. Paul Lutheran. These congregations have contributed money and staff time to create and sustain this program.

SAUK VALLEY UNITE is a local mission campaign where teenagers in our region get together to serve the communities of Sterling and Rock Falls through service projects. The teenagers will attend a mission service camp at Bethel Reformed Church and will spend their days painting houses for the disabled, elderly, widows and families that don’t have sufficient resources to do so on their own. Our goal is to paint 3 houses in 3 days. By staying in our local area, we can provide youth with a mission camp experience and serve our community with a fraction of the cost of mission trip to somewhere far away.

SAUK VALLEY UNITE  is made possible by the support from individuals, businesses, and organizations that have a desire to invest in making our communities better. Every dollar that is raised will go to purchase supplies needed for the completion of projects and facilitation of the program. To accomplish our goals for 2022, we hope to raise a total of $5,000. Your financial gift will directly benefit people in need in the communities of our region while at the same time empowering and teaching teenagers to work together and invest their energy and hearts into being an answer to a problem in a tangible way.

Your financial gift will also further increase the unity of communities demonstrated by the partnership of churches working side by side.  The need in our community is evident. The directors of the SAUK VALLEY UNITE SERVICE CAMP have the vision and the drive to make it happen, but we need your help to succeed.

Thank you for helping young people in our communities make a lasting impact!
