Opportunities to Give

At Hope we believe God is calling us to use our time, talents and resources to do God’s work in our church, community and world.  


Throughout this website there are many opportunities to give using your time and talents through ministries and service both here at Hope as well as outside of the walls of this church. However, on this page, you will find opportunities to share your financial resources to do God's work in this world.


Below are a few of the opportunities to give at and through Hope. For your convenience, each section has a 'ONLINE GIVING'' button leading the same page where you can give. When you click on the button, simply look for the line item that matches the ministry you would like to give to.


THANK YOU!!

What Ministry Your Gifts Support

Your financial gifts support ministry far beyond what a single family in a congregation can witness. So we will be posting some videos highlighting the ministries that your financial gifts support. 


If you are part of the Hope family, please keep all of these ministries in mind as you prayerfully make your contribution.

If you are visiting Hope or just visiting our website, then please feel free to browse and yes, if you feel called to make a gift to support God's work through this community, then let us say right now THANK YOU!!

Mission Plan (General Budget)

Ok...so this is what most churches call their Operational Budget. That is a term most of us are used to, except it isn't accurate. We are not a business or a household with a budget. We are a church. 


The financial resources aren't a budget, but a 'plan'. It is a plan from a financial perspective of how we as a church community feel called to do ministry through this place called Hope. If we feel called to offer worship opportunities, there is a 'cost' of volunteers, space, utilities, finances, etc. to make that happen. The same is true for Youth Ministry and Service Ministry as well. 


So this is the MISSION PLAN for the year!!


Of course, the rule of thumb, is that we give 10% of our income. This is a goal for each of us to work towards. However, no matter what you are able to give please see this type of giving as part of God's mission through this church. Please support our Mission Plan by giving through automated giving on a regular basis.

C.I.A. (Christ In Action)

This is a special fund to which you can give. 


People always contact our church looking for some sort of assistance. They may need food for a few days. They may need gas to get home. They may need a month of utilities paid in order to have heat in the winter...and so on...


100% of the gifts you give to this fund go directly to purchasing food cards at a local grocery story, gas cards, directly to utility companies or whatever the case may be...for the families in need.


This fund is not included in our overall Mission Plan (General Budget) and is supported completely by fundraising and giving that is above and beyond. 


To give to this fund CLICK HERE and look for "C.I.A.". THANK YOU!!!
