Lent 2019: Hope Lives Here
Way to go, Hope!
This Lent, we set a big goal to raise $500,000 in 40 days to transform the River Bend neighborhood near downtown Des Moines. And, while we knew that goal was big … we also knew God’s plans were much bigger! Through your generous giving, we were able to raise $798,179.31! Praise God!
All money raised for Hope Lives Here is set to be used by our mission partner, Habitat for Humanity, to build six new homes in the River Bend neighborhood, as well as provide repairs to over 40 existing ones in the same area.
Sign up to Volunteer!
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 become available. In addition to helping with construction, other volunteer opportunities will exist that do not require manual labor. We hope you’ll sign up to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our brothers and sisters in the River Bend neighborhood!
