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

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

  • ministry of the month- Gifts from the heart Christmas shop

    GFTH Christmas Shop’s mission is to provide a rewarding, affordable, dignity-affirming Christmas shopping experience.  Parents of low income families are able to purchases gifts for children at affordable prices, thereby given a “hand up” and not a “hand out.”  Last year they served 425 children, and they expect that number to go up dramatically this year.  Nine local non-profits are supported, including three which Hope regularly supports:  Family Promise, Habitat, and New Life Mission. 


  • New LIfe Mission

    New Life Mission is in need of denim! They have received a huge corporate holiday order for their denim coasters, and they are hoping to get 500 pairs of jeans to use to help fill this order.  You can help by dropping off washed blue jeans (light or dark denim) in the bin at 1204 N. Harbor City Blvd. or putting them in the bin at church during the month of October.  Another way to help New Life Mission with this project is by sewing; they can use assistance in sewing together squares of denim (not a high level of sewing skills required!) to get ready for the resident workers to complete with decorative sewing.  The Transformed Shop will have its grand opening on October 8 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., and you are encouraged to check out the amazing items they have for sale.

     

  • food pantry - Food on the First

    Genesis Food Pantry is stocking up.  Their main needs for November are Hamburger Helper and Chef Boyardee products and rice (1 or 2 lb).  The pantry has a large family shelf.  Needs for large families include cereal, peanut butter, soup, and anything for large families (i.e. large containers).  Thank you so much for all your donated items!

  • Homeless kits available

    The homeless handout kit supply has been replenished, and thanks to the Coopers for doing the shopping and the assembling. Don’t forget to pick up a kit or two to hand out.

     

  • hope cares

    Everyone needs help at different times and we want to be intentional and responsive to the needs of our church family.  If you have any questions, please contact Pastor or Deaconess Lois.  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

    November is a big month for the Sweater Ministry!  The yearlong efforts of several members will be shipped to northern Minnesota after Thanksgiving.  All completed sweaters to to be at church by Sunday, November 22. The sweaters will be on display in the narthex on November 29 so you can view the variety of beautiful handiwork.  If you are a knitter or crocheter (or would like to learn!) interested in becoming a part of this ministry, contact Linda Miller.
