What is 25:35?

What We Know

When you look at the city of Battle Creek, what do you see? Do you see a thriving utopia of a city? Do you see a city that can no longer stand on the back of the automotive industry and is hanging on by its finger nails? What we see, when we look at Battle Creek, is a city of the hungry, the beaten, and the forgotten. A city where many are pulling themselves along an unforgiving road.


What Battle Creek really is, is a city that needs hope. And a people that can look at their brothers and sisters and say I have some, let me share it with you. Project 25:35 is not just about giving food, clothing, counselling, etc. It's about giving something that will outlive you and me and all of us. It's about giving hope to a community that has lost it.

Where Does Project 25:35 Come In?

Project 25:35 is an idea, a vision, to strive to make Friends Church a part of that hope giving beacon. To do this we plan on building an outreach center filled with ministry. Ministries like clothing and feeding those in need, counselling, assisting those who have been human trafficked and domestically abused, and giving backpacks full of supplies to school children. 


THIS is where you come in. Friends Church in Battle Creek, Mi is picking up the torch! We are building a community outreach center right on the edge of Michigan Avenue to bring hope to this city. BUT... We need your help! It is no secret that this is going to be a big project, that we are estimating will take roughly $400,000 to complete over the next 3 years. Some have already come forward and offered to help build and create this outreach center, but we are going to need all the help we can get.
