Feeding the homeless at at Isaiah 61


Here at Hope Ministries we strive to serve the community of the Lakes Region and Beyond.  Everyone has different interests so there are many ways you can serve that we are already doing.  Or if you find a ministry that you would like to serve we may be able to work with you in that ministry as well.

Jesus said to go out and make disciples, heal the sick, help the widow and the poor.  That is what we the Hope Ministries family is working towards.

Lenten 40 Days of Giving

We will observe Lent with 40 Days of Giving.  Lent is a time to consider our spiritual growth as we remember the sacrifice that Christ made for us.   What better way to start this process than to give to others?  For the past three years many items of food and personal care items were collected and distributed to several different local organizations that help the hungry, homeless, poor, and abused.   This year we know the need is still great in the Lakes Region, so we invite you to join us.

Starting on Ash Wednesday, February 14th through Saturday, March 31st, the church will collect non-perishable foods, personal care items, paper goods, cleaning items and baby care items.  Church members are asked to donate one item each day during the 40 days of Lent. 

Anyone wishing to participate in the 40 Days of Giving is welcome to bring items each Sunday of Lent, or drop items off Monday - Friday from 9:0

0 AM until 12 Noon at the church office.  If you have any questions, please call reach out to Lou Ann Harris at lharris3077@msn.com.

Items being collected include the following:  

Non-perishable food items:  canned meat, vegetables, soups, and fruit, macaroni & cheese (individual containers are helpful), or rice (boil in a bag), baked beans, spaghetti sauce, boxed hot and cold cereals, hot chocolate mix, juice, peanut butter, pasta, tea, coffee, canned milk, etc.  Please, no glass jars of any kind.

Personal Care items:  shampoo, bath soap, disposable razors, shaving cream, deodorant, and feminine hygiene products
