Serve with Us!

Since there will never cease to be some in need on the earth, I therefore command you, “Open your hand to the poor and needy neighbor in your land.” – Deuteronomy 15:11

New Hope Church’s mission is to release people to serve Christ in our local, national, and global communities. Ten percent of New Hope’s annual giving is designated as benevolences and given to various Christian missions and ministries around the world. The Outreach Team works with the Deacons to manage these benevolences and ensure that the funds given are utilized to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. The Missional Engagement Team strives to reach out beyond the confines of the church and engage in the community.

The Elders are sponsoring a service opportunity for the entire congregation of New Hope this summer.  The Common Ground Free Store in Delaware provides food and resources to people in need. The mission of Common Ground Free Store is to share God’s loving gifts with all by providing basic needs in a caring, compassionate environment of unconditional acceptance and dignity.  The store has many volunteer opportunities such as:

·  Help run the store during open hours (Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays 5:30-8:30 pm and Wednesdays and Saturdays 9:30-1:15 pm). This includes greeting shoppers, check-in and checkout, kitchen staff, serving food, restocking the store, and processing donations in the warehouse.

·   Be a food provider. Each food provider prepares food for 30-40 people.

·   Monday or Thursday work crews from 10:00 am-1:00 pm (while the store is closed). This opportunity is for people who want to volunteer regularly and like to work behind the scenes. Weekly projects will vary and will consist of tasks that cannot get done while the store is open.

In order to volunteer you will need to click the button below and sign in through their website.  They can accommodate individuals and small groups or families.  In addition, the Elders will be manning a table in the narthex where you will be able to sign up with the Common Ground Free Store.
