Lent 2019: Hope Lives Here
Way to go, Hope!
This Lent, we set a big goal to raise $500,000 to transform the River Bend neighborhood near downtown Des Moines. And, while we knew that goal was big … we also know God’s plans are bigger!
We are so excited to share that we have surpassed our goal, with currently $566,362.58 raised … and donations continuing to come in! Praise God!
All money raised for Hope Lives Here will be used by our mission partner, Habitat for Humanity, to build three new homes in the River Bend neighborhood, as well as provide repairs to 40 current homes in the same area. That’s 43 families who will feel the everlasting love of Jesus Christ through the prayers and generous giving towards this project!
And, there’s still more to do!
Opportunities to build and repair these homes as an individual, family or life group will happen once construction begins this fall! Fill out this quick-and-easy volunteer form and we will notify you once days and times to volunteer available. In addition to helping with construction, other volunteer opportunities will exist that do not require manual labor … so there really is something for everyone!
