Below are a few organizations Rock Valley has supported, or partners with, at various times. If you wish to make a monetary donation to one of the below organizations, or to any other charitable organization, please give your donation directly to that organization. We always suggest doing your due diligence with any organization to determine if you support its vision, and how it uses donations. Any time we are doing a collection at RVCC for an organization, we will share details with our attendees in a timely manner. Thank you!

V.O.W. (Visit Orphans and Widows)
V.O.W. is Rock Valley’s outreach based on James 1:27, “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.” We encourage you to find ways to put this Biblical directive into action personally, and with coordinated group endeavors.
Kedesh Santuario – Rock Valley and some of our attendees have supported the work being done for orphans and widows at Kedesh Santuario in Mozambique, including sending Julia K. on a mission trip to Kedesh. “Kedesh Santuario is a boys home for 30 boys between the ages of 9 and 18, located near Beira on the east coast of Mozambique. The boys are orphans, or they come from unsafe homes due to abuse, neglect or extreme poverty. Kedesh gets its name from the “cities of refuge” in the Bible (Numbers 35:6) that were built for people to have refuge from people pursuing them after they accidentally killed someone. So for these boys it symbolizes a place of refuge from things that would otherwise have pursued them such as abuse, poverty and life on the streets.” Click here to learn more about Kedesh Santuario, or to learn how to donate directly to Kedesh.
