Roscoe United Methodist Church is actively involved in missions in the Rockford metropolitan area. Roscoe Methodist members strive to be Jesus' hands and feet in our world today. 

  • Food is collected for Old Stone Food Pantry which serves our neighbors. 
  • Four or five times a year members donate food for and serve lunch at the Emmanuel Episcopal Soup Kitchen in Rockford.
  • Several times a year Roscoe Methodist makes sack lunches and leads a chapel service at Rockford Rescue Mission. 
  • Rockford Urban Ministries, Habitat For Humanity, Backpack Ministry, Project 16:49, Caritas (Beloit, Wi), Carpenter's Place, Salvation Army,  State and National Missions, Camp Reynoldswood and Wesley Woods Camp are also beneficiaries of Roscoe Methodist Missions. 
  • Loose coins are collected from the offering and given to 12 local and world missions throughout the year. 
  • Annual Mission trips are the highlight of many members' summer.  Groups travel to a selected area where they stay for a week and work on a variety of projects to improve the lives of those in need.   
  • Roscoe Methodist is a participant in the Northern Illinois Food Bank's Backpack program, providing weekend meals for our local hungry children. 
  • Roscoe Methodist tutors students weekly at two Rockford Public Schools to give our local students the skills and confidence to become successful in life. 
  • Annual Angel Trees are a highlight of the Christmas season at Roscoe Methodist, providing gifts for five different local organizations serving low-income neighbors.
