God loves people! God's heart is to meet every person where they are at, transform them with His loving embrace, and restore their hopes and dreams! We live in a day and age where many people are struggling with addictions, relational conflict and hurts that never seem to go away. People are looking for answers.
God's love in us compels us to help, to reach out and to initiate projects and opportunities to help meet people where they are at with the most amazing message ever heard! That message is simply that there is a loving God who cares deeply about people!
HANDS OF HOPE
For many at Christmas, the struggle is real. It's filled with worry and stress rather than the joy of the season. To meet this need in a practical way, we started our very first outreach in 2008 called Hands of Hope.
WHAT DOES "PRACTICAL" LOOK LIKE TO US?
Each household receives:
- Two large bins of groceries; everything needed for Christmas dinner, plus extra groceries for the holiday season
- Prayerfully selected gifts for children in the home
- To the door contactless delivery
Since 2008, we delivered:
- to over 1010 homes
- to over 3700 people
- over 2200 bins of food
- over 2040 personally selected and wrapped gifts
While COVID-19 may change how we do things this year, it is still our heart to bring hope to our community.
HOW CAN YOU BE THE "HANDS OF HOPE" THIS YEAR?
We have many teams that you can be a part of from purchasing gifts to delivering hampers. Be assured, we will take every precaution to ensure the safety of our volunteers and our recipients. Don't delay, sign-up now as space on some teams may be limited.
