Our outreach to the local and wider community

Boy Scout Troop 123

BSA Troop 123 has been a continuous presence at Spring Creek Church since our earliest days. This was the first troop to hold a Continuous Fire in 1966 honoring the anniversary of Boy Scouting, and many hundreds of boys have reaped the benefits of the program since it was chartered here in the 1960s.

 

The Troop's annual Halloween Pumpkin Stand has become a fixture on our front lawn, and their Christmas wreath sales help the boys fund year-round camping adventures.

 

Troop 123 has produced over 40 Eagle Scouts, and several of their Eagle Projects have benefited Spring Creek, including a stone firepit on our front lawn, our storage garage, our garden benches, and improvements to our woodland trails.

In October 2015, a Memorandum of Understanding between the Boy Scouts of America and the United Church of Christ was signed, renewing the relationship between these two organizations.  ...Read more

We strive to be good stewards of the environment. 

We partner with Shelter Care Ministries to provide transitional housing for homeless families through the Adopt An Apartment program. Linens, kitchen, bath, and cleaning supplies are collected into kits so we can be ready to refurbish dwellings for new tenants as soon as we receive the call.

 

We support Laundry Love, an grassroots initiative of Rockford Area Lutheran Ministries that is making clean clothing possible for those low income individuals and families who need help to afford and access local laundry facilities. Many participants in the program are homeless.

 

We are affiliated with Meet The Need, a local non-profit organization the helps coordinate resources to aid the less fortunate in our community.

 

Our SCCrummage Sale volunteers collect, renovate and resell thousands of consumer goods every year in order to provide both an annual 3-day community event but also an economical shopping alternative for families with limited income. The event reflects our environmental commitment to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

 

Our popular Concerts On The Creek music series provides a unique venue for both emerging and regionally-recognized artists to showcase their talents. The series is funded entirely by free will donations without any admission fees.

There are boxes in the hallway above the coat rack for collection of used eyeglasses, hearing aids, hotel toiletries, Boxtops for Education labels, and electronics such as cell phones. These will be taken to centers for proper reuse and/or redistribution to schools and nonprofits who will put the items to good use. Recycling receptacles for aluminum cans and plastic bottles are located in the kitchen and throughout the building. Used bulletins and office papers are also collected and properly recycled. Our resident Rockford Clean & Beautiful representative, Nancy Houtz, will happily answer questions about ways to keep reusable items out of our landfills.

Commitment to improving the quality of life in our community is a core value of our congregation.
