Serve Our Community
While we certainly minister to our church family, we also believe we have a wider responsibility to be kind, compassionate, and loving neighbors to our community. The following programs are organized to benefit those in need within our church family as well as all in our wider community. As many as 80% of Iosco County doesn't have a church they call home - we want to be a witness to all those people and make sure they know they're welcome at New Hope.
We'd love to have your help in any (or all!) of the following projects. Many are seasonal, so contact the office to volunteer, or keep an eye out for notices on the calendar and during services.
Bountiful Harvest: collects and distributes Thanksgiving meals every November.
Camp Counselors: ministers to children in a casual, camp setting each summer.
Emergency Relief and Emergency Home Repairs: year around support for those without the resources they need to survive.
Empty Bowls: a mission to raise awareness and support of the hungry in our community.
Hamburger Helpers: collects, prepares, and distributes donated venison to those in need each fall.
Operation Backpack: provides backpacks filled with school supplies right before school starts each year.
Salvation Army Christmas Bell Ringers: help by ringing the bell and watching the bucket for Christmastime donations in the community. Bundle up and go by yourself, a friend, or your kids.
Wood Cutting Team: prepares and distributes wood to families in need each winter.
