Hope to Home Meals:
Hope to Home Meals are homemade meals prepared for those who have experienced health problems, a death of a family member, or are homebound. After they are made, the Deacons deliver them to the recipients. This wonderful ministry meets the third Monday of each month at 4:00 p.m. in the church kitchen.
Hooked on Hope:
Hooked on Hope Ministries seeks to provide love and acceptance to women who are incarcerated or were formerly incarcerated and who struggle with addictions. We minister to their physical, emotional, spiritual, and social needs. Through the power of God's steadfast love, we provide individual spiritual guidance, art kits, and a writing component in an effort to heal the wounds that led to destructive behaviors.
During the service blitz, teams of individuals work on various projects. Previous service blitzes include painting the Spicer library conference room, assembling thank you packages for the local fire and police departments, and doing yardwork for the elderly.
Mission trips are a vital part of our ministry. We have youth, adult, and intergenerational trips. We have been to Texas, Puerto Rico, Alaska, Mexico, Omaha, and many other places closer to home.
Women of Hope have made beautiful prayer shawls to give to those who have health issues or other concerns. Pocket prayer shawls are also given to individuals.
