Offer hope to someone in an emergency crisis or need by checking out opportunities in our Hope ministry.

Changing Our World – One Life at a Time

Mission Statement: H.O.P.E. Ministry exists to reach out to members of our community during emergency times of crisis and need. The message of Hope in Jesus is always at the forefront of this ministry through the servant hearts of its faithful team members.

We work together with Operation Food Search, St. Louis Food Bank and other area agencies that serve our community. We create relationships with those that we serve in our community through our yearly events which include a Coat Fair in the winter, an Easter Celebration in the spring, a School Supply drive in the fall and a Thanksgiving meal in November. We are open every Wednesday from 4-6 p.m., and every Friday from 10 a.m.-noon for those who may need assistance with food.

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
