Montgomery HOPE members at a project to serve the homeless.
The Alabama Chapter of HOPE worldwide, which is associated with the Auburn Tuskegee Christian Church, is making plans to be more active on a regular basis. Chapter President Mike McGinnis and his wife, Carol, just attended a regional HOPE conference in Jacksonville.
Following this conference, Mike met with the HOPE board and discussed projects the group can do. One main theme Mike talked about is the importance of church members doing both serving and evangelizing. Both are vitally important.
Several HOPE members have been serving in the community recently. This past Sunday the Montgomery group handed out packets to the homeless, and then sat down and spent time with them at the Salvation Army. They made new friends and prayed with them.
Also, Travis Hawkins and Kat Watson went this past Tuesday to help with the Macon Country Food Pantry.
The International Day of Giving for HOPE worldwide runs from Sunday, October 9 to Sunday, Oct. 16. We are excited to have the opportunity to take up a collection on this day to meet the needs of the poor and infirm around the world.
Stay tuned for information on a Thanksgiving service project and a Christmas service project.
HOPE officials in Jacksonville demonstrate how HOPE members are raising money by getting pie in the face.
