Community

Food Pantry

Hope’s Food Pantry is open Monday through Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Other arrangements can be made by calling the church office at 939-9181. We provide cereals, pastas, noodles, soups, canned vegetables, etc. that should help you prepare meals for yourself and your family.

We give away 25 to 40 sacks of food each week. Church membership, attendance, or registration is not required.  We are open to all members of the community regardless of denomination or belief, so stop by and let us help. Our food pantry is sponsored by our congregation, the Idaho Food Bank, and Thrivent Financial.

Free Lunch Ministry

Once again this summer–from June to September–we offered a free lunch of hot dogs, chips, a drink and some good old-fashioned fellowship to all who stopped by on Wednesdays at lunch time (11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.).  We want to thank everyone who stopped by and had lunch with us and all those who honked and waved at us on the corner.

Often times, the question is asked “Why do you do this?” or “I thought there was no such thing as a free lunch.”  We offer this lunch because we believe there is a need in our community and God is calling us to respond.  With the economic crisis we are all experiencing right now, it is good to have a chance to get away from the financial pressure of buying or providing a lunch.

If you have another idea of a need that could be met in our community, please give us a call or email.  We have been blessed so that we can be a blessing to others in our community.

I challenge you all to come on out and spread the word of Jesus Christ through your actions, by helping others.

THANKS BE TO GOD!

Meal Ministry

Do you know someone who needs to be touched by love in the form of a meal delivered to their home? Do you know someone who is hurting from a loss or operation or sickness? Do you know someone who is overwhelmed by life such as having a new baby or losing a job? Hope’s dedicated team of servants prepare meals for folks in need. Just give the office a call with the details and the information will be passed on and a meal will be delivered.

If you’d like to help with this ministry, call the church office at 939-9181.

Volunteer Needs

We are always looking for extra help in all ministries.  If you see something that is of interest to you, please contact that group or the church office for more information on how you can get joined up and start serving others.  The rewards are great for the giver as well as the receiver!
