Firehouse of God Ministries is a non-denominational church that was started in 2004 by Pastor Brian Tribley. The mission is to reach out to the un-churched, the homeless, the hungry, and those less fortunate in our community.

Our Community Light Program consists of:

-Feeding Program-serving free dinner five days a week, Monday through Friday from 5:00-6:00 PM.

-Men’s Rescue Mission-we house up to 11 men in a long-term program, giving them moral and spiritual support, helping them find work, and working to get their lives back together and go back into the community as a more responsible person.

The Council House houses 6 men, most are employed at Self-Help Enterprises. We have a caretaker on site 24 hours, 7 days per week to cook and serve meals, give rides to doctor visits and events, and moral and spiritual support.

-Community Outreach (Evangelism)-we attend events in the community and surrounding areas at churches, fundraisers, community events, nursing homes, and birthday parties-anywhere we’re invited! We take with us our fire truck for rides and water fun and our inflatables including slide, moon bounce, obstacle racer, and water slide.

-Fire Evangelism-especially for the kids! We provide children’s visual sermons such as The Armor of God, Ventilation, The Fiery Darts, and more as well as fire safety and firefighting activities with our Smoke House.

-Fire Museum-currently we are open for special events where we invite the community in for a free day of activities including fire safety training, firefighting activities, inflatables, fire truck rides, a free lunch, and pictures with the Fire Trucks.

-Let’s Feed Our Children-we participate three days a week during the summer delivering lunches to four locations in Rock Falls.

-Service Outreach Program-getting youth and adults out in the community to beautify our city by cleaning up trash, cutting weeds, planting flowers, and landscaping with fabric and mulch.

The programs at Firehouse of God are carried out by volunteers, people with big hearts who care deeply for the community.
