What's new at Hope.

  1. Kindness Outreach Canceled but do be kind anyway…

    Community Updates

    Dearly Beloved Hope-folk,

    Due to the forecasted 100% chance for inclement weather tomorrow, Saturday, November 22nd, we are CANCELING our planned grocery-bag giveaway.

    We will re-schedule this outreach for later in the year as we approach the Christmas holidays.

    We are asking those who have planned to bring filled bags to the building tomorrow to simply wait until Sunday and just bring them to church. We will collect and store them for our future kindness outreach.

    I appreciate your understanding,
