SUNDAY FUNDAY & MISSION SUNDAYS
- Every 1st and 3rd Sunday we load up our 15 passenger van to go to Worship Services at Jefferson St. Christian Church. On the 2nd and 4th Sunday we go UTurn Life Center in Springfield to Worship with the Homeless and serve in different creative ways. The Kids love it here!
- Every Sunday after Worship we gather for a shared meal-a time of thankfulness and prayer at "The Hut" @ Jeff St. followed by fun activities and outings for all ages!
SCHOOLS OUT BASH
- On the last day of School every year we throw a Bash in Ray White Park with Blow ups, Music, Activities, Games, Entertainment, Food, etc. Its all Free of Charge!
- Breakfree B-Boys: Breakdancing evangelists from Chicago are the main attraction and a crowd favorite!
LITTLE GALILEE CHRISTIAN CAMP
- Every summer we provide scholarships to neighborhood kids so they can go to Christian Camp.
- We also take older kids and families with us to Family Camp.
- Additionally, This March we are having a Lock In for 24 Jr High Kids at Little Galilee. (Breakfree B-Boys will be there!)
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (C.E.F)
- Every Summer Child Evangelist Fellowship provides VBS at Hope Grows through its Time Tested '5 Day Club'.
MOVIES UNDER THE STARS
- During the warmer months we show Movies with a positive message outside @ Hope Grows followed by a time of teaching/discussion. (Weeny Roast-Smores before movie-Popcorn and beverages during movie)
DANCES/PARTIES @ THE HUT
- We hold several parties/dances a year at Jefferson St. Quonset Hut building. They have graciously let us use THE HUT for these larger events. In Prior years we held these dances/parties in the Park, Backyard or in Hope Grows which we have outgrown.
Accomplishing these outreach events requires a large group of people who use their gifts and talents to serve God and minister to the hearts of His people. We would love to have you get involved. If you have a desire to let God use you and partner with us we invite you to consider joining us on our mission. Perhaps you have an idea or a community project you would like to do, but never had the opportunity? We are always looking for ways to partner with others in bettering our community. We would love to have you serve with us as we worship God through our gifts and talents. If you are interested in being a part of our team, please contact us today!
