WISCONSIN RAPIDS — A local church has gifted their building to a non-profit.
New Hope Community Church gifted their building at 710 20th Ave. South to Love INC of South Wood County.
New Hope was established in Vesper, Wisconsin in 1898. The congregation relocated to Wisconsin Rapids in 1973. Love INC was established in 2017 as one of 130 locations in the nation. As future space was needed for training volunteers, client programming, and the call center, expansion was much needed.
“It is a non-emergency ministry to seek the root cause of difficulties in people’s lives and to connect them with existing and new resources within the community and at the same time establish a lasting relationship with volunteers from partner churches,” said Rick Merdan, Love INC Board Vice President. “We are eternally grateful for this wonderful generous gift which will accelerate our progress at establishing this ministry in our community.”
