Hope’s Mission Ministry

Hope’s Mission Ministry is committed to providing opportunities for the people of Hope to share the love of Christ with those in our state, country and world. No special requirements are needed to attend any of the trips—just a servant’s heart. If you have any questions about the following trips, want more information, or would like to get involved in the Mission Ministry, please contact Kelly Slaybaugh at mkslay@aol.com.

North Carolina Mission Trips
Our current mission in North Carolina is assisting the Mitchell/Yancey County Habitat for Humanity. This 5 day/4 night trip is great for those who like to work with their hands and see immediate results, as well as take in some beautiful mountain scenery. There are various service options depending on your interest :

  • Construction: Construction tasks may vary with each trip; however, training will be available at all skill levels.
  • Habitat ReStore: Another service option available for this trip is to assist the “Habitat ReStore” in sorting and organizing donations. This option is ideal for those who like to support the mission but are not comfortable working in construction.
  • Meal Preparation: Come along on the trip and help prepare meals for the team, or stay at home and prepare meals for the team to take—either way is a huge help! Working outside all day works up a great appetite and this is one of the most appreciated roles on this trip!

International Mission Trips
Our current international mission trip is an 8 day/7 night trip to Guatemala to assist Groundwork Guatemala in “Seeking the Lost; Equipping the Found.” This is achieved by listening, praying, encouraging, and sharing the love of God with the poorest of the poor. Translators will be present so no foreign language required!
How you can help:

  • Prayer and Spiritual Encouragement: Most of the trip is about spiritual building and encouraging by sharing the word of Christ with the people in Guatemala. You don’t have to be a preacher-just love God!
  • Children’s Message: The team will prepare a Bible lesson for children based around a scripture. They will convey that message to the children through skits, songs and crafts
  • Hygiene Donations: The people being served in Guatemala often do not have access to basic health and hygiene items. Our mission teams rely on donations of these items to bring with them to distribute to the Guatemalan people. Please watch the bulletin at church around the spring/summer for a list of donations needed!
  • Financial support: Throughout the year, the team will be doing fundraising to offset the cost of the trip and offer a financial donation to Groundwork Guatemala. Your support of these fundraisers is appreciated!
