Welcome to the
Rockwood Ministerial Association
and the Food Pantry
The Rockwood Ministerial Association (RMA) is an all-volunteer organization.
One hundred percent (100%) of donations go to support the ministry of the RMA.
Besides the food pantry, we also support other hunger-related services, including the Second Harvest
Food for Kids program.
Food for Kids sends each of Rockwood's most at-need children home with a backpack full of kid-friendly food to help make sure they are eating over the weekend.
We also give a donation to support the ministry of the
RMA also gives out Christmas baskets in December. This past year about 285 families received a Christmas basket filled with food. This year we hope to give out over 300 Christmas baskets. Sign-up between 10 a.m. and noon weekdays from Nov. 10-21 in the Food Pantry. Bring identification and documentation of income. Or, help pack baskets Dec. 19 starting at 5:30 p.m. at the First Christian Church of Rockwood at 328 W. Rockwood Street.
Besides food and financial help, the RMA is an ecumenical voice in the community. We work to create a community of support and oneness amongst the churches by coordinating many community services throughout the year.
We have a baccalaureate service for graduates of Rockwood High School, a Thanksgiving service, and a summer Community Praise and Sing. We also plan
Holy Week Luncheons during the week leading up to Easter.
During Holy Week, the churches come together for a meal each day and share in a brief worship service.
Any Rockwood church is welcome to attend and be a part of the Rockwood Ministerial Association. Ministers and lay people are encouraged to attend and represent their congregation to support the work of the RMA.
