HIS Benevolence

We know that life can be tough. Some times there isn't enough money to go around. Or sometimes an emergency happens and you need a little extra help to make it through. We're here to listen and do our best to help our situation. We have volunteers who can meet with you:

Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays 10am- Noon

There is an application process and sometimes our funds for assistance are limited. No appointment is necessary, but you are welcome to call us if you have questions before coming in for assistance. 


Each Sunday, collection baskets are left at the communion stations so that those that want to give to the benevolent fund may donate. This money is set aside blessing those in need of financial help in cases in family or area wide emergences. Another way that the HIS Benevolence raises money is through the sale of RADA Cutlery. If you are interested in purchasing any knives and kitchen accessories, you can use this link. Make sure you search for RUMC Benevolence Fund (Rochelle, IL) so we get credit for your order.

Thank you for supporting our community ministries!
