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. 

  • Donations for point in time count

    The Point in Time count in Brevard is held each year in January to get an idea of the number of homeless persons in the county.  Hope is going to help by collecting knitted hats, t-shirts, white socks, and general hygiene items which will be given out to the homeless individuals who participate in the count.  The Sweater Ministry ladies have shifted to making hats for this effort, and we have a bin in the narthex for donations of knitted hats, t-shirts and socks; the narthex basket for hygiene items will be used for any general hygiene donations. Donate items by January 17 to be ready for the count the following weekend. 

  • flight child hunger 5K

    The signup genius deadline for the Fight Hunger 5K Run/Walk is January 3; after you sign up on our list, you will be sent the code to use on your official entry for Running Zone.  The entry fee has already been paid by Hope outreach in support of The Children’s Hunger Project and the Central Brevard Sharing Center.  The run/walk is on Saturday, January 16, at 8 a.m., and though our “Hope to Finish” team may not end up in first place, we know it will be a time of fun and fellowship with a free pancake breakfast afterward not to mention the premiere of our new Hope t-shirts.

  • food pantry - Food on the First

    Genesis Food Pantry is stocking up.  Their main needs for January are peanut butter, cereal, and baked beans.  Thank you so much for all your donated items!

  • Homeless kits available

    The homeless handout kit supply has been replenished, 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

    The yearlong efforts of several members will be shipped to northern Minnesota after Thanksgiving. If you are a knitter or crocheter (or would like to learn!) interested in becoming a part of this ministry, contact Linda Miller.
