Different ministries will need different support at various times.  You will find them listed below. 

  • genesis food pantry - Food on the First

    For May, the Genesis Food Pantry is especially in need of shelf stable milk, Hamburger Helper, spaghetti,  and elbow macaroni. Genesis appreciates all Hope does for them. 

    Volunteers needed: The Genesis Pantry can use 2-3 volunteers for the 3rd Thursday of each month. The hours will be from 8:30 a.m. until 12 noon. There will be a training day either on a Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon before starting to work in the pantry. If we have more than a couple people who would like to do this, we may make teams and each team would work every few months. Anyone who is interested should speak with Nancy Sutter.

  • Faith Build:  scheduled lunch Service days are  Saturday, April 27 and Saturday, May 25, 2019   Read more below ....

    March was a fairly busy month for Habitat and Hope! There are several more opportunities in April to help with preparing and serving lunches and also working on the house. Please consider how you may help and sign up on the sheets in the narthex.

    Work starts at 8 a.m. at the Cedarwood site with a planned wall raising event that day! You have an opportunity to meet and work alongside the future homeowner  and other Christian Habitat supporters in the community. Other details are on the signup sheet in the narthex. You
    will be blessed!
    If you are interested in volunteering at the worksite but are not available on these dates, you can check the Habitat website which is updated Tuesday afternoons for updates on their work schedules, tasks, and
    locations. The website is and if you go to “Construction” and then “Build Locations” you can get the latest details. Check it out! 

  • hope cares

    Everyone needs help at different times and we want to be intentional and more responsive to the needs of our church members.  If you have any questions, please contact the church office or ask Pastor.  Prayerfully consider ways that you can help and we will not "over use" you in your offer and ability to provide such help.    Thank you for being part of our church family.

  • knitting ministry

    The group will meet in the Fellowship Hall on Tuesday, May 14 @ 1:00pm for you to bring your completed items.  There will be yarn for you to take for your next project.  Beginners welcome!  Thanks to our knitters at Hope we are able to give the warmth of a sweater to those in need in Minnesota.  If you are interested in this ministry, please contact the church office email.  The photo is a recent one of some of the sweaters provided.

    Contact Linda Miller for more information.

  • Pregnancy Resources

    Spare Change that Changes Lives
    To honor Mother’s Day, we will be supporting Pregnancy Resources through a Change Drive. Bottles and change envelopes will be available to take home on May 12 .  You can use them as a reminder to
    pray for the work of Pregnancy Resources as you fill them with change, cash or checks before returning them on June 16.

    For 35 years, Pregnancy Resources has worked in our community to offer compassionate, critical support to any woman facing a decision about an unplanned pregnancy.  Within their doors, she finds critical care for her medical, spiritual, and educational needs, all at no cost. As a result, countless lives have been changed, saved, and transformed. In the words of one of the many clients who came to Pregnancy Resources, “Thank you for being a lifeline for me. Thank you for showing me how to find the strength to face this with love instead of fear.”
