Neighbors Plus ~ Better Together!
Our Neighbors Plus Vision:
Neighbors Plus leads ministries that focus on educating, guiding, and caring in the Holland community with our church partner, Harderwyk Ministries.
Neighbors Plus uses the passion, talent, and experience of its staff, board and church partner to develop new ministries, and build strategic community partnerships with other organizations and churches with the goal of serving community needs and sharing hope in Christ.
Neighbors Plus encourages an outward focus on neighbors and needs as an integral part of Harderwyk’s vision, strengthening both the church and the community.
Neighbors Plus desires that all who are touched will see God, follow Him, and grow in faith at Harderwyk or another faith community.
The future starts here - come be a part of it!
Alternative Suspension Program is Going Strong! We are in the midst of another great year at the Alternative Suspension Program (ASP)! While ASP’s primary focus is keeping students on track with school work, we’ve always found it important to mentor as well. Providing an objective ear to troubles they may be having, as well as leadership concerning acceptable behavior practices, come in as a close second!
In addition to academic support and mentoring, both long and short term students consistently participate in community service projects and visits to local businesses and services for Career Explore opportunities. A very special Thank You to all supporters of Neighbors Plus who so strongly support our various ministries. Many of you have opened your businesses and/or places of employment to serve as a platform for these Career Explore visits. You take time to discuss education, business, and service paths. You even lead tours of your facilities. This support profoundly affects our students. They often come away feeling cared for, inspired, and encouraged. In fact, it is this kind of support that has led the way for ASP to expand to a second site on the south side of Holland!
We look forward to continuing to support our surrounding schools and families. As always, we believe we’re Better Together!
What’s Cookin’ at Neighbors Plus
If you find yourself at Harderwyk Ministries on the second Monday of the month, you’ll likely take in some amazing aromas. Each month, Neighbors Plus hosts our What’s Cookin’ dinner for families in our various ministries, followed by a visit to the Neighbors Plus Market, where for $5, families can fill up grocery bags of food and home care items.
Doug & Cindy have been coming to What’s Cookin’ since its inception, and are now are incredible chefs. Those amazing aromas you smell are thanks to the two of them! Not only are we eating amazing, homemade meals, we have had the opportunity to get to know them on a much more personal level.
That was our goal and intent with What’s Cookin’ – to build relationships with families, and it’s been wonderful to spend these evenings getting to know everyone a bit more! If you are interested in attending, please contact Jennifer Roudebush at firstname.lastname@example.org.
