The Hearts of Hope CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) works to show the love of Christ by responding to emergencies and natural disasters throughout the United States. Trained as chaplains, certified in first aid and willing to do whatever it takes to help.
We are very active in our community and have an annual Halloween dinner, a free yard-sale with household items and clothes, provide Thanksgiving dinners to local families, participate in Angel Tree during the holidays, and an annual Vacation Bible School.
The community cabinet is located at the front doors of HWC at 136 Elizabeth Street. It is stocked with non-perishable can items and personal care items. At times, we have veggies - follow us on fb to stay informed.
The concept is to take what you need and give when you can. The Cabinet is open 24/7.
Every December, we partner with churches all around the country to deliver necessary basic household items to underprivileged children in four different counties. Items such as food, blankets, socks, and school supplies. In addition, we provide bicycles as well as a holiday party complete with Santa Claus, face painting, toys, games and music.
Through the Hope Worship Center puppet ministry, we hope to provide answers to some of children's top questions about the Bible, with programs like “The Answer Guys” and “Eyewitness News”. They even make an occasional appearance on Sunday mornings. Puppets are effective in reaching, teaching, and entertaining audiences of all ages. They aren't just for kids.
If you would like to become more involved in the ministry of Hope Worship Center or in broader mission work, talk to one of the pastors today about serving God and supporting the mission to spread his love and bring hope to many!
The mission of the church is not limited to what happens within the walls of the church building, but is realized when we take it outside of the church to the lost and hurting world.
God's love is not of empty words and gestures, but it is a genuine love that shows itself in actions with people through community service, feeding the hungry and caring for those around us in any way we possibly can.
