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.

Outreach Spotlight
At Hope, one of our Core Values is Engaged Outreach by loving others
abundantly. If has been defined by the Gospel of Jesus and the importance
of sharing that message. We are given the opportunity to share Christ and
to have others share Christ with us. We find ways to lighten the load of
those around us, encouraging them as we live alongside them. We do this through speaking words of encouragement, committing acts of kindness, and offering thoughtful gifts to those God places in our lives.

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

  • genesis food pantry

    The  March pantry is especially in need of  Hamburger/chicken/tuna helper and mac & cheese. As always they welcome any non-perishable food or cash donations.  Genesis appreciates all Hope does for them. 

    Volunteers needed: The Genesis Pantry can use 2-3 volunteers for the 3rd Thursday of each month, starting in March. 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 Friday, March 22; Saturday, April 6; and Saturday, May 25, 2019   Read more below ....

    March will be a fairly busy month for Habitat and Hope! There are several opportunities 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.
    First, we have a casserole lunch for the college kids on Thursday, March 7th. We still need help with food items and with servers. This will be at the Cedarwood location.
    Another lunch for college kids will be on Monday, March 11th and will be at the ReStore on Babcock St. in Palm Bay. The lunch will be provided, but we need help with serving.
    We have a work day scheduled for Saturday, March 9th at the Cedarwood location. If you are able to help on that day, we have openings for 3-4 people. It is important to note that this work day may be affected (cancelled) by subcontractor work during that week. Like so many things in the construction
    process, we won’t know for certain until we get closer to the actual date. We will keep you informed!
    On Friday, March 22nd, we have a Habitat Faith Build lunch scheduled. Since it is a Friday, it will be a
    smaller group that we will be serving, and it might also be affected by the subcontractor work. More details
    will follow.
    If you are interested in checking out information about the Faith Build, you can go to and click on construction and build locations. Because there have been several occasions when too many volunteers have shown up to work (Saturdays), there is now an online signup so that you know if there are
    openings for workers on a particular day. Usually Thursdays and Fridays are open for workers, but you may
    want to check the website before going to the site.
    We will be receiving Thrivent funds to help with lunches, but most important to our Habitat support is what
    you Hope members and friends bring in terms of your donations of time, food, and skills plus your love of the Lord in serving your neighbor.
    If you have questions or need more information, please contact Nancy Roberts.

  • 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.
