Serve Locally

The intersection of people in our building and our neighborhood isn’t just our reality; it’s our mission.

Jeremiah 29:7 tells us to “seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you…and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find welfare.”

We may be from different zip codes, school districts, and backgrounds, but when Jesus moves toward us, we move toward one another in service and friendship.

Ways to Serve the City

Help our community partners serving more people in need due to effects of the corona virus and the unrest in our cities. Bring donations to Hope Church. Leave outside door 1 during the hours of 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday-Thursday.

Community Emergency Service (CES) + VEAP

CES serves the Phillips Neighborhood of Minneapolis. VEAP serves Richfield, Bloomington, Edina, and South Minneapolis.

VEAP and CES can get food for lower prices than we do, so the donation goes farther when funds are donated.
