Outreach meetings are held the third Thursday, every other month, via Zoom. 

Contact Nancy Roberts for a Zoom invite at outreach@hope-brevard.org. Our next meeting will be July 20 @ 6:30 p.m.

  • Ministry of the Month

    Our outreach Ministry of the Month for June is the New Life Mission which is a long term transitional housing program committed to provide shelter and invest in the personal and professional development of homeless mothers with children.  It was founded as Brevard Rescue Mission in 2008. It is the mission of New Life Mission to permanently break the cycle of homelessness in families by providing homeless women with children housing, access to health care,  transportation, education, nutrition, job training and life skills in a safe, Christ-centered residential setting.  As an example for their residents, New Life Mission does not receive government assistance, and they are able to provide Christian teaching and guidance in their programs. They have moved their administrative offices and some services to their new property on Croton Road. More details are available at their website at new life-mission.org.

  • Pink Beading Ministry

    The pink beading group will meet June 2, 6-7 p.m. in the fellowship hall. Everyone is invited and encouraged to join the group for a fun hour of fellowship and beading. If you would like to learn more about this ministry for cancer patients, contact Janet Duddy at 561-339-1279.

  • Redeeming Life Baby Bottle Campaign

    In celebration of life, the members of Hope Lutheran Church have the opportunity to partner with Redeeming Life Maternity Home. Redeeming Life focuses on “redeeming” the lives of single mothers and their unborn children by giving them hope. The home preserves life and prevents abortion by providing single pregnant women in crisis a safe, nurturing, Christ–centered home. At Redeeming Life, these women experience what it means to love and to be loved in Christ while learning to support themselves and their child. It’s easy to participate. Just pick up a baby bottle in the Narthex and fill it with coins, cash or a check over the coming weeks. Bring it back on June 18 and know that your giving is making a difference for the women being served at Redeeming Life!

  • Care Packages for Deployed Airmen

    We are beginning a new ministry for the military involving sending care packages to deployed airmen in Chap Potts’ group from Hurlburt Field. We are still sketching out the details for this project, but this month we will need help from our members in two areas: writing cards of Christian encouragement for the airmen and assembling the care packages after second service on Sunday, June 25. More details will be forthcoming. If you have questions, please contact Nancy Roberts at nlr7clover@gmail.com, 321-327-4122, or 804-513-5375.

  • Baker's Blessings on the Road

    Our Bakers’ Blessings on the Road cookies for June are scheduled to go to our Hope shut-ins. Check the narthex sign-up sheet for details. Cookie bakers are reminded to pick up a bag of labels so that you have a label for each individual  Ziplock bag of two cookies. Nancy Sutter at 321-537-2717 will be able to answer questions about this ministry.

  • Hope for the Homeless

    For the month of May I purchased $250 in Bug Spray using Outreach Funds. In June I will be purchasing men's and Women's belts as Daily Bread is in desperate need for both. I will also be purchasing ponchos online as they are hard to find in stores. Hope was able to donate 3 bags of clothes and over 100 hygiene items in May. Hope can contribute for the month of June by purchasing combs/ hair brushes. The dollar store brands work just fine. 

  • CITA Dinner July 5

    Save the date: July 5th! We will be serving a meal at the CITA Mission at 5 p.m. and then participating in “Caroling in July” and a brief worship service with the CITA men at about 6:30. This was a wonderful, uplifting experience last year, and we look forward to it again this year. Please note: this will be our only “Caroling in July” activity this year.

  • Hope Cares

    It is a great time to fill out a Hope Cares gold-colored half sheet, even if you have filled one out before. Hope Cares is a  program that matches needs with resources. Hope Cares provides choices of ways that you can bless others, just fill out a gold sheets with your preferences of ways to help. As the requests for transportation, meals delivered to a home, sending greeting cards, or many other needs that are requested, volunteers will be contacted to help someone in need.
