We exist to serve others by showing God’s love in practical ways by meeting the needs within our communities and spheres of influence.
Simple acts of personal kindness can open hearts to the love of Jesus for both those being served and those serving.
The Hope Church Outreach Serve team is made up of Outreach Small Groups and individuals who are using their gifts and talents to glorify God by serving others.
We want every person who is passionate about helping people to find the right opportunities to effectively use their gifts to build up the body of Christ and extend the Kingdom of God.

Hope Church Pantry
A Community Sharing Pantry
“Take What You Need, Give What You Can”
The Hope Church Pantry is a grassroots, community-sourced solution to a real, immediate and local need.
Whether a need for food or a need to give, the Hope Church Pantry facilitates neighbors helping neighbors – building community.
This is a Community Sharing Pantry were you take if you are in need and give if you can spare the extra.
These pantries help our neighbors and friends across the community.
It is never locked and is always open 24/7 for your convenience.
It is through the generous donations of the community that makes this work so well.
The Hope Pantry is for neighbors helping neighbors.
A place to provide and meet everyday food and personal needs. The Hope Pantry is for those who want and/or need to give.
• The Pantry is small, so it cannot stock the quantity and variety other food pantries can.
• Many food pantries require application before use and have set hours of operation. Anyone may access the Pantry at any time, 24/7.
• Food pantries operate as service providers. The Pantry dissolves that professional boundary. Whether stocking or taking stock, everyone approaches the Pantry the same way, mediating the shame that accompanies need.
• Food pantries are critical in addressing food insecurity. But some fall through the cracks. The Hope Pantry is a safety net in our community.
• The Pantry is a proving ground, testing concepts like community, charity, justice, and sharing economy.
The Pantry is stocked organically.
Those who wish to contribute may do so at their discretion when convenient.
Demand can outpace supply, so the Pantry can be empty. However, empty shelves are problematic only if no one is contributing.
Through sponsoring organizations, community awareness and Facebook posts, the reminder to visit and help stock the pantry is maintained.
Stock according to need. Generally, canned vegetables and proteins, dry goods, personal care items, etc.

To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”
