Outreach and Missions
Outreach and Missions allows us to actually “live out” our faith in daily living. As a congregation, here is what we are about…
Rock Springs Elementary School
Ministry to the faculty and students at Rock Springs Elementary. We can’t ignore the faculty, families, and students that God has placed in our midst. Our desire is to be a blessing to all who enter the doors of RSE. Here is how we serve the school: 5-6 times a year we provide a special luncheon for the entire school faculty. (usually on teacher in service days) We minister to the families of RSE by hosting a community-wide Easter Egg Hunt. We look for opportunities to assist RSE children and families in need. We volunteer at the school when help is needed.
We are called to bless our local community as needs arise through the HOPE (615) Initiative. Local outreach can be as simple as a block party in a neighborhood or something as complex as roofing a home. Missions sometimes means we help a family in need of groceries and it can also mean we volunteer to help a family move. At Hope, we believe what we do “outside” the walls of the church is just as important as what happens “inside” the walls. Our genuine desire is to serve in a way that brings glory to God and points all people toward Jesus.
Multi-Generational Mission Projects.
We believe there is something really special that happens when grade-schoolers and teenagers serve alongside adults and senior adults. We believe God is honored when the entire church body serves together, side-by-side. Each year, Hope provides opportunities for individuals and families to serve locally, nationally, and internationally.
In addition to the three areas described above, Hope Fellowship Church also financially supports the ministry of missionaries sent from our own congregation as well as missionaries serving with the International Mission Board and the North American Mission Board. Local missionaries include:
Christy Dyer, church plant missionary at New City Church in NYC
Matt and Jenny Loving, Trek X mentors and missionaries with Mobilizing Students
Lindsey Edwards, YWAM Nashville
