Connecting people to God and to each other through comfort and support.

Contact Erica DePalma , HOPE Connection Coordinator


Meals from the Heart

Meals from the Heart provides meals to HOPE families who are experiencing challenging life circumstances such as a surgery, illness, bereavement or the birth of a new baby. Want to help? Why not sign up to make and or deliver meals to those in need. Schedules are very flexible.

If you belong to a small group and are looking for ways to connect and help others, consider volunteering for this ministry. Contact HOPE Connections coordinator, Erica DePalma.

College Kids & Military Personnel

HOPE Cares collects the mailing addresses and birth dates of HOPE's college-bound students so they can receive cards and notes of encouragement throughout the school year. This reminds them that their faith community is holding them in prayer.

HOPE Cares also sends letters, cards and notes of support to HOPE individuals who are serving in our armed forces.

Please contact HOPE Connections Coordinator, Erica DePalma for more information about adding a student or military person’s name to the lists, or to volunteer for this important ministry.
