Christmas Blessing Express of New Hope Ministries
New Hope Ministries is a service organization that serves those in our local community who are experiencing a time of need. During the Holiday season, donations are collected at the church to assist in caring for our neighbors. The HOPE is that each recipient will find comfort and peace at Christmas and be able to enjoy the love of family and friends.
We believe that God calls us to be servants in the service of others and to be good stewards of the earth’s resources. “To believe is to care; to care is to do.”
