“All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I had been eager to do all along.” -Galatians 2:10
The HOPE Neighbors Club was able to serve lunch to the homeless teens of Seattle thanks to your support. We all connected and enjoyed the opportunity to help those who need love and a healthy lunch of salad and sandwiches.
As a church we are determined to continue growing in loving those in need here in Seattle. Our desire to imitate Jesus requires loving those in need around us. We have always been committed to our “Seasons of Hope” efforts that have included our annual MLK, Jr. Day of Service, an annual blood drive, our annual NW Harvest Food Drive and a Christmas Toy Drive for the Seattle Children’s Home. We were inspired by Heather Hsu to move from quarterly efforts to serve those in need to monthly projects. We are eager for your creativity and support as we develop this program. Heather is developing a committee of interested parties and you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you to all who have helped us serve the poor locally and globally through HOPE Worldwide since our church started here in Seattle 24 years ago. Looking forward to becoming more like Jesus in the coming years and appreciate your love and support along the way.
January Partnership with local fire fighters and the American Red Cross. Our MLK, Jr. Day of Fire Prevention Awareness Day was a great success.
February Partnership with Swedish Medical Center’s Children’s Trauma Wing: We will be developing the library of books, DVDs and VHS tapes for the children undergoing medical care and their families. Please bring any appropriate reading material and movies to the church on any of the Sundays in February and we will use them to meet the needs of suffering children and their families.
