Our Mission

    Webster-Rock Hill Ministries is a cooperative effort of member churches to fulfill their commission to serve people in need in our community. We wish to create alternatives for those who feel they have none.

    This includes people who lack the physical necessities of life, emotional resources to cope, or spiritual counsel. WRHM works to create community by promoting understanding between people and groups.

    In doing so, we provide opportunities for diverse members of our community to work together across lines of class, age, race and denomination.

Our agency seeks to …

  • Meet the emergency needs of low income persons in the community
  • Act as a clearinghouse for churches by maintaining files on persons receiving services in order to avoid duplication and assure that those who are most needy receive help
  • Provide information about services and referral to clients, churches and agencies for services unavailable at WRHM

  • Assist people as they seek new options and alternatives in pursuing a higher quality of lifeLorem ipsum dolor sit
  • Build awareness of poverty and social problems that exist in our community
  • Build community among all the residents of our community

Our History

    In 1982, concerned citizens, ministers, and community organizations recognized that some of our neighbors needed assistance. Together, they organized Webster-Rock Hill Ministries so that our neighbors and church members could get the support they needed.

    Thus, on August 21, 1982, Webster-Rock Hill Ministries was chartered as a non-profit organization to provide assistance to the elderly, unemployed, people with disabilities and people with low incomes.

    In 2016, our community of supporters renewed its commitment to our neighbors in need through the OurWRHM campaign, which funded the revitalization and expansion the Ministries’ facility.

    A non-profit organization, Webster-Rock Hill Ministries is financially supported by contributions from private donors, businesses, community organizations, fundraising events and contributing churches.

Our Theological Statement

Because we believe in the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ as set forth in the New Testament, we witness to His words found in Luke 44:18-19: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because God has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. God has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because God has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. God has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.

And realizing that “God is our peace and has broken down the wall of partition between us” (Ephesians 2:14), we strive in our ministries to break down barriers by serving others without regard for person or circumstances.

Recalling that Philippians 2:5 admonishes us to “Let this mind be in you, that is also in Christ Jesus,” we seek to perform our ministries in a spirit of servanthood and trust.

Recognizing that “the strong must bear the infirmities of the weak” (Romans 15:1), we further seek to bear one another’s burdens through the ministries of encouragement, care, comfort, and unconditional love under the direction of God’s Holy Spirit.
