The number of people in 2016 that let us know that they had prayed for salvation or rededication. Leading people into a real relationship with Jesus is one of the greatest events in ministry. Shout out to everyone who took their first step in their relationship with Jesus.
Pounds of Food
This is how many pounds of food that was given to less fortunate families in our community through our Food Pantry. Feeding the hungry is not only emphasized in the Bible but demonstrates the compassion of Jesus to those in need.
Getting God’s Word into the lives of people all over the world. Through iTunes and Podbean, over 7,000 messages were downloaded by people all over the world for free. These messages provide hope & faith bringing victory in the battles of life.
Free CDs Given Away
We believe in the Power of God’s Word to change your life. (Romans 10 & 1 John 5). The Lord has placed it on our heart to get His Word out, so every week we hand out recent messages on CDs for free to anyone who wants more of God’s Word. In 2016, over 15,000 preaching CDs were handed out for free to build the faith and life of people.
Our Thanksgiving Outreach handed out over 90 complete Thanksgiving dinners to less fortunate families in the community. Without these baskets, many would have had nothing for Thanksgiving.
In 2016, our Back to School Outreach handed out over 160 brand new school backpacks with school supplies to children in the community. These simple acts of kindness go a long way to help a child have the necessary tools to learn and to experience the love of Jesus in a practical way.
At Hope Church we have found the joy of “Showing the love of Jesus before we tell them about the love of Jesus”. Giving Christmas presents to less fortunate children in the community makes an impact that cannot be forgotten. In 2016, our Tree of Hope Outreach gave 1,581 wrapped presents to over 220 less fortunate children in the community.

Our “Tagged By God” wristbands are not only a great reminder that Jesus is always with us…it is a practical and powerful way to reach the unchurched. This modern day tract also reminds us that every person can make a difference to someone. It’s great that we go to church but it’s greater that we be the church by always being available for the Holy Spirit to use us to reach others.
