Outreach Spotlight
one of our Core Values at Hope is being Engaged Outreach by loving others

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

  • Community Outreach meeting

    Upcoming outreach meeting will be held on Thursday, November 7 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  This will be a good opportunity to share ideas about new ministries and/or places where we can serve. Everyone is invited to attend! Contact Nancy Roberts, Outreach Chair for more information

  • genesis food pantry - Food on the First

    For November, the Genesis Food Pantry is especially in need of canned meats, sweet cereal, and hamburger, tuna, & chicken helpers. Genesis appreciates all Hope does for them.  As always, they welcome any non-perishable food or cash donations. 

    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.

  • good tidings from hope - upcycled greetings

    There is a basket in the narthex with upcycled greeting cards which were made during Mission Week.  These are available to anyone to send to someone in need of cheer.  We will continue to collect the fronts of greeting cards in the basket as well as schedule another fun card-making session soon! 

  • 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

    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.   Please have all sweaters to the church by November 23 to be shipped to Minnesota in time for Christmas.

    Contact Linda Miller for more information.
