Service & Outreach Opportunities

Serving our community has been a part of Hope’s mission since we were planted as a church in 2005. This legacy continues still today as the first 11% of our budget every year is dedicated to our outreach ministry. Through this ministry of service, Hope provides many opportunities for our members to reach into our community with the Hope of Jesus.

Outreach meeting are held the second Thursday of each month via zoom. 

Contact Nancy Roberts for a Zoom invite at outreach@hope-brevard.org.

  • Genesis Food Pantry

    The Food on the First collection is on Sunday, Sept. 5th. Needs for Genesis Pantry for September are Chef Boyardee and cereal. All food and monetary donations are appreciated very much as are plastic bags, dozen egg cartons, and cloth grocery bags. If you are interested in volunteering at the pantry on a Monday or a Thursday morning, please contact Nancy Sutter for complete details.

  • hELP wANTED-fAMILY pROMISE

    Help!! We are in need of a Family Promise coordinator for Hope! Duties include coordinating a meal date with Lovi Lovisome at Faith Viera, setting up the SignUp Genius for the (taco) meal, gathering the food, and making arrangements to deliver the meal to the designated hotel where the families are staying. In addition, there are occasional Family Promise meetings to attend as well as Hope outreach meetings. Family Promise—and their efforts to keep families from homelessness—has been a long-standing ministry at Hope, and we ask that those with a heart for this kind of ministry prayerfully consider becoming our coordinator. For more information, please contact Pastor James or Nancy Roberts.

  • hOPE FOR THE hOMELESS

    The Hope Outreach Committee will use a Thrivent Card to purchase the men’s shorts online and our Hope members will be donating the crackers. The best bang for your buck would be to purchase crackers from Walmart, they have 27 count Austin crackers for $5.92. They have peanut butter and cheese flavored varieties. We will also be providing blank cards for Hope members to write words of encouragement for the homeless as well. This act of kindness will put a smile on the face of so many in our local community. Tori Cooper will collect all items at the end of Sunday 2nd Service on September 26th and plan a drop off at Daily Bread the 1st week of October.  The continuing months following the collection items will be based on what our Daily Bread Representee Betsy requests for the month.  We will continue that cycle so that we do not gather items they cannot or will not use within the next 30 days.  The plan is to collect specific items of clothing, food, or personal care each month.  The collection of unopened travel hygiene items for the homeless continues as usual. Thanks for your help in getting these supplies to the homeless in our community!

    The pink beading group will meet on Friday, Sept. 3rd from 6-7 p.m. in the church fellowship hall.

    Hope Cares is a program that matches needs of Hope members with the resources that are most helpful. This program is a way to help us bless and serve others with our time and talents. Hope Cares is also there to help in a time of need. Those involved can bring meals, give rides to church or other places, share greeting cards, or visit those who are in need. Hope has helped many people through this program with visits, meals and transportation. If you would like to bless others in this way or you know someone in need of assistance, contact Deaconess Lois Diebel or talk to Pastor.
