New Church Building Hopes to Change Lives of Stateline Youth | Christianity
ROCKFORD (WREX) – A new church is in town looking to change the lives of young people at Stateline.
The building is owned by Freedom “A Church Without Walls”.
After working on a college campus in Rockford, he is finally on his own.
“It’s a kingdom of work that manifests through the glory of God,” said senior pastor Kevin McGinnis. “And bringing them from school to this church gives them a church and a feeling in the presence of God.”
McGinnis is also a new pastor at the church. He is already trying to help the less fortunate in the region.
“We’re going to reach out to the poor,” McGinnis said. “We are going to engage this community and let them know that the church is there for any needs they may have.”
Michael Harrington, security guard at Freedom “A Church Without Walls,” says the positivity has only grown stronger at the church.
“It’s a wonderful feeling,” Harrington said. “It comes from the heart. It comes from God.
Harrington adds that the church lends a helping hand to anyone who needs it.
“We’re all here to help those on the streets,” Harrington said. “We will try to lead the young people in the right direction.”
A direction that Pastor Kevin McGinnis hopes will lead the way for his congregation.
“I pray people see we’re here,” McGinnis said. “Not just for service, but to help bless this community, because there are many individuals in Rockford who really need to have an intimate personal relationship with God.”
Step forward and hope to change lives in Rockford.
Worship is held every Sunday at noon at Freedom “A Church Without Walls”. The church will have a pre-Thanksgiving service on Wednesday, November 24 at 6:30 p.m.
