  3. Help Women Out of Slavery – Come to the Redeemed Ministry Coaster Party

    Community Updates

    If you’ve ever watched a movie, read a blog or a book that dealt with oppression – I know you’ve felt it: That desire to DO SOMETHING. And yet, we often feel that dishes, laundry, work, grocery shopping and yard work sap us of our will power and we just don’t know where to start. How can little ol’ me make a difference? I’m not Jen Hatmaker or Oprah!

    Well, maybe we start small – and band together. I’m OK by myself, but so much stronger when my gal pals are with me.  So here we go girls – 

    We’re having a “band together party” to deal with one of the biggest problems in AUSTIN – slavery. Yes. Slavery. Here are the facts.  Specifically human sex trafficking.

    We’ll talk with Redeemed Ministries and help support a woman that is walking in the Light now. Learning how to support herself and start a new life.

    Redeemed Ministries mission is to bring Christ’s loving redemption and amazing liberation to those trapped and exploited within the commercial sex industry and/or by human trafficking for sexual exploitation or forced labor. We focus on outreach, aftercare and advocacy and are located in Houston, Austin and Dallas. 

    Women who have been rescued out of sex trafficking and are in our aftercare program make coasters as a healthy means of supporting themselves and transitioning back into society. This allows them to save money to get on their feet and start a new life. By hosting a coaster party, not only is Hope Chapel bringing awareness to the issue of sex trafficking, but supporting one of our women living in Austin! Please come join us to learn more about sex trafficking in our city and how you can combat the issue.

    YOU CAN HELP! And it’s so much better than the dishes. 

    The Special details:

    When: Saturday night, August 23rd, 6 – 8pm

    Where: Hope Chapel – the den upstairs

    We’ll have light food and the chance to here from Calli from Redeemer Ministries and help support a woman making the transition to a new life out of slavery.


  4. Planning Your Weekend? Add in our Training for Walmarting on Saturday Night.

    Community Updates

    If you are interested in going on our prayer-walking outreach called “Walmarting,” but would like to learn more about how prophecy and evangelism can work together, come learn from Diane Wall this Saturday from 8:30 – 10:00pm. You do NOT have to go out on a team that night. We will stay in the Lighthouse and encourage one another in the practice of encouraging words, praying in public, prayer-walking & listening to God’s prompting.
