As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another,
as good stewards of God’s varied grace
— 1 Peter 4:10 ESV

Jesus taught that putting others' needs above our own is the heart of Christian service, therefore we believe it is our duty to reach out to people near and far and share the love of Jesus Christ.

Project Hope

Our Purpose...One Child, One Hour, One Church, One School = 
One Life Changed

Project Hope (in partnership with Kids Hope USA) reaches out to students who are at-risk in our local, public school by providing mentors and tutors. Kids Hope USA is the catalyst for an expanding network of church/school partnerships. These partnerships take on the enormous challenge of kids at risk–One Child, One Hour, One Church, One School at a time–through one-on-one mentoring and tutoring relationships.
Our partner schools are McKinley Elementary, Emerson Elementary and VanDevender Middle School. 

Mentors meet with their students for 30-45 minutes once a week. This time period is chosen to fit the schedule of the student and the mentor. Tutors work with their students for one class period per week at a time selected by the teacher.

Get Involved:

  • Mentor

  • Tutor

  • Prayer Partner

  • Baker

  • Substitute Mentor

  • Event Helper

  • Spirit Lifter

  • Office Assistant
