Be Supported

Prayer. Fellowship. Resources.


As Christians we have a unique privilege to be the ones, as Jesus encouraged, to care for the orphan.

Hope Chapel’s mission includes the call to “build strong families.” We know families provide important space for healing for children from hard places. Truly, “God has placed the lonely in families…” – Psalm 68:6

The mission to care for a child isn’t always easy. We welcome everyone to find their role within our ministry to support these families in our congregation.  Or maybe your home is one providing for a child from a foster, adoptive or other vulnerable background – we want to be the body of Christ around you.
