Immanuel’s Hope Ministry

Each week, Immanuel’s Hope Ministry reaches local families in need with the gospel, prayer, and free, practical assistance. Donate clothing, shoes, sheets, blankets, and towels in a bin in the Atrium or bring them to the long, white garage on Wednesdays, noon-4pm. Larger items such as small appliances no larger than a microwave please bring directly to the long garage. Tax receipts are available.

You can volunteer! Help receive and sort donations on Wednesdays, 12-4pm, or sort donations on Monday afternoons. Help in the Wednesday evening outreach. We need English- and Spanish-speaking small group leaders to visit and pray with our visitors. We need Spanish-speakers for database entry and workers with a smile to pack the bags of visitors after they finish shopping.
