Make a Difference Locally

Copper Creek has developed three Local Mission Partnerships.  Each area has a leadership team involved in prayer, planning and connecting Copper Creek to ongoing and special projects.  For more information about any of these groups, contact Scott Keeble.  Find your passion and get involved!

Kingdom’s Cause is a non-profit dedicated to serving homeowners in the Champaign-Urbana. Their goal and mission is to build relationships with community members and assist homeowners with home repair projects. Projects range from small repairs to large-scale projects like roofing and landscaping. Copper Creek’s Partnership includes a Vision and Strategy Team, Providing volunteers for projects and general support as needed.

Young Lives is a ministry of Young Life that ministers to teen moms. Young Lives connects teens to caring mentors, life skill resources and, most importantly, to a God who loves them desperately. Copper Creek’s Partnership includes a Vision & Strategy Team, Providing meals for Club events, Entering into Mentorship Relationships, Fundraising for Camp and general support as needed.

The Matthew 25 Team is in the process of discerning where God is calling Copper Creek to serve and how to address the issue of Homelessness and poverty in Champaign-Urbana. We are exploring partnership with a few local organizations already addressing the needs of the materially poor. As we explore where God may be calling us to serve, we are reading books and articles, meeting with local leaders and spending time in prayer for our neighbors in C-U.
