Prayer Shawls are made and given to people in dozens of states and several countries who need the warmth and comfort they bring to those suffering from illness, grief, or concern. Anyone may request a shawl to give to a loved one, neighbor, friend, or acquaintance by contacting the church office. The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays at 9:30 – 11 a.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR). Everyone is welcome, including those who have never picked up knitting needles or a crochet hook and would like to learn. God’s love is spread through yarn!

Our Supper Club is open to all, whether single or married. The groups consist of 6-8 people joining together for a meal or going out to lunch/dinner together. The groups are pre-organized and a listing will be emailed to each club member. The host/hostess picks a date/time and prepares the main dish. The rest of the group provides the remainder of the meal (appetizers, salad, or dessert). This is an excellent way to meet new members and get to know each member a little better. Nothing fancy, just a good time for everyone to relax and enjoy each other in a small group.
Whether you’re new to Hope or a long-time member, ushering is a great way to get involved and meet people. Extend a hand of Christian fellowship to others as they enter for worship, and share the spirit of Hope with them! Ushers commit to just one worship service per month. Duties include distributing bulletins, greeting people, directing families, etc.
