community outreach opportunities

Find your passion and join our vision of reaching out to our  community.  Check out  the ministries below that we at Hope are involved in supporting.   You will find the different ways you can help those in need.


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

  • genesis food pantry

    The December pantry is especially in need of Chef Boyardee products, Hamburger Helper, and cereals.  As always they welcome any non-perishable food or cash donations.  Genesis appreciates all Hope does for them.

    This year’s Christmas baskets from Hope will be taken to the Genesis Pantry at Emmanuel United Methodist Church. We have committed to 20 baskets and no more than 25. We will be using Thrivent funds to buy the Hams. If you would like to help by providing a basket, please sign up how many baskets you would like to donate. (Grocery bags work well as "baskets.") All baskets are due at Hope no later than December 12.  For more information contact Nancy Sutter.

  • december 17th- Family Promise Of brevard dinner and hosting

    On Monday, December 17th,  Hope is providing dinner for the families in Family Promise that are staying at Faith Viera. Sign up for specific menu items. FaithViera is also in need of dinner and overnight hosts. Contact Dorothee Jones if you are interested in helping out.

  • December 20th - Cita Rescue Mission to help Serve Dinner

    Hope will set up dinner at 4:45 p.m. on Thursday, Dec 20th and then serve a meal (provided with Thrivent Action Team funds and prepared by our member, Beth Hazley) promptly at 5:00 p.m.  CITA houses up to 70 men to help men who are struggling with homelessness to be self-sufficient and to share the Gospel with them. Sign up in the Narthex. Contact Dave Roberts for more information.

  • faith Build wall raising has been tentatively scheduled for Saturday, January 12, 2019. everyone is invited and encouraged to join in this exciting event.

    Habitat for Humanity has a new building project involving local churches, and this time it is called a Faith Build which is  a name change from the Apostle Build earlier this year. Thrivent is supporting this project by providing half the funding for the house, and Hope has committed to providing $2000, 3 work days, and 3 lunches as well as prayer support. The Faith Build house will be at 2209 Cedarwood Dr., very close to the Apostle Build home last year. It’s a great opportunity to meet the future homeowner and also to help afterward building more walls.  Hope is on the schedule for work days on Friday, January 25; Saturday, March 9; and Saturday, April 13. We will need 3-4 workers on those days. The construction supervisor advised the Faith Build partners that when there are more than 10 to 12 workers at the site, it is hard to find enough work for everyone, depending on the tasks for the day. However, on Thursdays and Fridays workers are always welcome and don’t need to be on the schedule since there is usually not the number of volunteers and groups that are free to work on Saturdays. The contractors will be working on the house in February, but other than that you are welcome to help any Thursday or Friday. :)  Our scheduled lunch days are Friday, March 22; Saturday, April 6; and Saturday, May 25. Once again, we will be serving lunches for other worksites in the Cedarwood neighborhood as we did previously.  We look forward to this outreach challenge to serve our Melbourne community and our Lord by supporting the Habitat Faith Build. Watch for further news and sign up sheets. Please consider being a part of this exciting endeavor—you won’t be sorry! Contact Nancy Roberts for information.

  • 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

    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.
