community outreach

Here at Blessed Hope we are committed to making a difference in our community.  We are on a mission to “Be the Church” to our community and to demonstrate the Love of Christ in real, tangible, no strings attached ways to people that need to know Him.  We love to serve!


csi

This summer we had the opportunity to offer a one of a kind program to children and families in our community called CSI (Christian Summer Institute).  CSI, a 3 week program, was open to all elementary aged children and provided a mix of academic skill development and Christian education.  It was a wonderful experience for the students and all in all served over 75 students and had over 40 volunteers!

Faith in action

in-town mission trip

We had such a great time at Blessed Hope's first ever Faith in Action in-town mission trip.  Many people took vacation from work or spent their days off joining us for our 3 day mission around the city of Vinton.  We worked on homes in the community - doing light construction, painting, cleaning, cement work - and even  did a whole home make-over.  We did some work at Head Start/HACAP and completed projects for our local schools and the Park Department.  On top of that, we had teams of people prayer walk the entire city - praying up and down each block...at all of our schools...and our parks. We also had our kids plugged in - moving around town and inviting people to church, visiting the sick and spending time with folks at our nursing/assisted living homes.


All in all, we had over 90 adults and kids participating.


And as if that wasn't enough - we spent time together at the church each night - having devotionals, worshiping together, sitting around the campfire, playing games - and just growing closer together as a body.  It was truly a blessed time and we can't wait to do it again!

"war room"

Thank you so much for your willingness to serve the community by taking them to the movie.  Blessed Hope was blessed to be able to purchase 86 tickets for people to see and be inspired in their faith and prayer life.  Thanks for being the church!

Operation christmas child

Recently, Blessed Hope had the privilege to be able to participate in Operation Christmas Child (sponsored by Samaritan's Purse).  

Shoeboxes were sent to parts of the world where children typically won't receive gifts on Christmas.  Sound good?  IT IS...BUT THAT ISN'T ALL!

Get this...each shoebox is also an opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.  As shoebox gifts are distributed, local pastors or church leaders present the Gospel in a fun way designed for kids while family and friends listen in. Along with their shoebox gift, children also receive The Greatest Gift, a colorful presentation of the Gospel in their own language.


This was a great way for us to Be the Church!


Vinton Feeds the world

Blessed Hope just finished participating in "Vinton Feeds the World" - a joint project with other churches in the Vinton Area to package and give away over 30,000 meals for both local use and for those in need overseas.

world outreach

Blessed Hope is privileged to be able to support—through the generous tithes and offerings of our members—various ministries and missionaries both locally and around the world. 

Blessed Hope is committed to these missionaries and ministries—not only financially—but also through continued prayer.  We are excited to have a part in their mission—spreading the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
