MISSIONS

At Hope Point, we believe in showing the love of Christ as outlined in Matthew 25. “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” While these ministries are just a small part of the overall outreach of the church, a lot of heart goes into them. We believe that the love of Jesus can be shown to the world in very practical ways. We know we aren’t the whole answer, but we love the part we get to play in our community and feel blessed to be able to do it. So whether it’s our food bank, our outreach to kids in area hospitals, or prison ministry, we believe that we are a whole lot more blessed to give than we are when we receive.

food bank

Hope Point has a food bank located at our Central Campus that has been in operation for nearly 20 years. It serves hundreds of families a month, helping to provide at least enough food for 3 meals each week.

Holiday Food Boxes

Every year we provide food boxes to those who come to our Food Bank to help them with their holiday meals. This year we are asking for the following items. We will be collecting through November 4th and all items can be dropped off at the Info Center at either campus.

  • 80 large cans of sweet potatoes
  • 80 cans of cranberry sauce
  • 150 boxes of stuffing

nursing home ministry

Hope Point values every stage of life and knows that people in living in their golden years can often feel alone and disconnected. As a result, we have endeavored to reach several area nursing homes, including one exclusively focused on veterans. Those who have served our country deserve our deepest gratitude and we want to be there for them when, at many times, no one else can be. This ministry involves connecting with Seniors, prayer, worship, and special events to brighten the spirits of those living in the homes. It’s a great opportunity for is to give back to those who have given so much.

 women’s SHELTER MINISTRY

There are many in our area that have been victims of domestic violence. Hope Point has developed great relationships with area shelters to help to connect with and encourage families that have been abused. This ministry, because of its nature, is open to women only. However, anyone can participate by providing items that families need. We like to give to these families at certain times during the year.

prison ministry

We currently minister to those who have been incarcerated in area prisons and are currently in one for men and one for women. We run church services in both.

healthcare ministry

We are actively looking for opportunities to minister and serve those who find themselves in a hospital or medical facility. We have reached out to kids in St. Mary’s and are actively working with local doctors to find the best ways of reaching those who are going through illness and medical challenges and need encouragement and prayer.

church planting

We have planted over 20 churches domestically and consider church planting as a part of the apostolic call that God has on our church. As it has been a strength of ours in the past, we are always open to helping to plant new churches.

International Missions

Hope Point has been dedicated to missions since the early days of the church. We have partnered to help plant 100 churches around the world. We have major Missions efforts in Africa, Europe, and Southeast Asia including 2 schools in Africa that educate over 2,000 children a year. Whether it’s foreign or domestic, missions are a core value of our church. We take the Great Commission that Jesus gave in Matthew 28:18-20 very seriously and are committed to creating disciples locally and around the world.
