Teamwork Campaign

 

What a tremendous joy it is to celebrate the goodness of our Lord God! When we launched our congregation’s two-year Teamwork Campaign back in September, we had faith that God would move the hearts of the people of Hope. Several important projects need to be tackled to keep our ministry facilities in excellent condition, and to enable the congregation to keep its primary focus on reaching people for Christ. Please join me in saying “Thanks be to God” for many blessings in the first three months of our Teamwork Campaign.

Pastor Wayne Puls

Thanks be to God...

  • For commitments received, to date, of $457,387.
  • For donations received, to date, of $185,508.

Home Repairs

Ever had to repair, or replace, a HVAC unit at your home? Ever needed new carpeting? Or replaced an old roof? Every home needs repairs, maintenance, and updating. It's no different here at Hope! Here's a checklist of ministry facilities projects at Hope. All are important to the day-to-day work going on in our spiritual home. We're off to a good start! Working together, we can tackle the rest of this long list for the sake of our church's mission.
