Thank You…

We want to thank the church for the wonderful retirement celebration that was given for us.  It was GREAT!  We thank everyone who gave us gifts and cards.  We thank everyone who attended to celebrate with us.  We also give special thanks to all who planned and helped conduct the event.  We will always remember how you made this day special for us.

Love,

Richard & Lana Newcom

Dear Friends,

Now that 2019 is in full swing, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help in the Community Hope Center Christmas Toy Drive.  Each year, we never cease to be amazed at how much the Lord accomplishes through our caring community.  Because of the generosity of people like you, we were able to provide Christmas toys for 417 boys and girls and give a message of hope in Jesus to their parents.

God has blessed us with friends like you and we are so grateful.  We ask for your continued prayers and support as we work to serve those who are less fortunate in our community.

May 2019 be a year of abundant blessings and joy for you and your family.

Your Friends at Community Hope Center

 

 

FEBRUARY 2019 VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT

 

Our Volunteers say that serving has made a difference in their lives and their relationship with God. 

 

We love to hear how God is working in the lives of our volunteers.

 

 

"I serve because Jesus served and He is my example.  In serving I also recognize that serving takes the focus off of myself, and puts the focus on others.  I find gratification in that" - Dennis Schillinger

 

 

"I love working with children and seeing them learn about God and Jesus.  Especially when they finally understand something we have been talking about for weeks."              - Sherrey Steiner

 

 

"I feel God has given me the gift to play musical instruments so I want to thank

Him by honoring Him with the music we play, hopefully bringing others closer to Him also." - John Cavanaugh

 

You can read Dennis, Sherrey and John’s favorite volunteer memories on the upstairs bulletin board in the Education Building.

 

Can you Volunteer?

Thank you Volunteers! 

Your willingness to help strengthens the Ministry of our Church.
