Serve Locally

SERVE: LOCAL

As followers of Jesus Christ, we are called to reach out to our brothers and sisters in Christ – to be the face of Jesus to those who are sick, hungry, poor, or facing other desperate circumstances. In a very real way, the church of Jesus Christ has been given the task of carrying on his ministry, following his example into the lives of our neighbors, both here and abroad.

Below, please find a list of Hope’s local mission partners and ways they serve our community, along with information on how you can get involved.
