"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4:10
Our mission at Hope is to reach out to the world around us and share the everlasting love of Jesus Christ. Deeply recognizing that an unbeliever's most vital need is to know Jesus Christ, we have a role in sharing the Good News through serving the needs of the hurting and helpless in our world.
You can visit our go(serve) website for more information. Please let us know how we can help you participate in Missions.
Hope for the Hungry
Feb. 19 - April 1
This Lent, join Hope for a meals giving and packaging event spanning 40 days at five different campuses! Currently, approximately 870 million people live in chronic hunger, making it the number one risk to health worldwide – greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. This year during Lent, we are living out our mission "to reach out to the world around us and share the everlasting love of Jesus Christ" by doing our part to help feed our hungry brothers and sisters both in our community, and around the world.
April 18 & 19
