This camp was created to offer free, multi-site, summertime Christian programming to children of the unemployed and “working poor” in the urban neighborhoods of Racine, including “God Time” worship, and opportunities for teens to be employed as camp staff and helpers.
In 2009, Emaus expanded its intentional neighborhood outreach to include Latino ministry for Racine, offering Sunday worship in Spanish followed by a meal. Midweek opportunities include a music school for kids, an after school program, bible studies, a meal and a kid-friendly worship service.
Unity is an intersection of ministries that connect people at various levels through a Soup Kitchen, an Active Adult Center, and an Open Door Free clinic, all housed within its walls, combined with an emphasis on spiritual growth and worship, leading back to community service.
Located on the edge of Marquette University campus and rooted in a neighborhood marked by both poverty and promise, Redeemer focuses on community collaborations with businesses, students and partnerships to serve their neighbors. One such partnership is a Noon Community meal served at Redeemer and run by Marquette Campus Ministry students.
