BEING THE CHURCH Our vision has always been about reaching unchurched people. And in this present moment of global fear and anxiety, we have an opportunity to live out this mission even more concretely. Here are three ways you can bring the hope of Jesus to our local communities. BE FAITHFUL IN PRAYER Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 We have created a downloadable Prayer Guide that will be available soon. BE FAITHFUL IN SERVICE You are the light of the world…let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. ~ Matthew 5:14,16 Here are some ways you can serve one another:
  1. Connect with family, friends, and neighbors regularly to offer words of love and encouragement. Pray with and for them.
  2. Share a meal with someone who feels isolated.
  3. Check in on elderly friends and neighbors. Offer to get them groceries.
  4. Offer respite for caregivers of elderly individuals or those with special needs
  5. Offer free childcare to parents who have to continue to work outside the home.
  6. Pay for groceries or a meal for a family in need.
  7. Walk your neighbor’s dog.
  8. Show kindness, practice patience, and give grace. BE FAITHFUL IN GENEROSITY You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. ~ 2 Corinthians 9:11 Generosity is a very practical way you can help Hope City through this season. Your regular giving in our church changes lives and empowers us to continue to share the hope of Jesus in the midst of an uncertain and fearful world. We are asking all of us who call this church home to continue generously giving, and to set up recurring giving. Your regular giving helps us anticipate and meet the unexpected needs of the communities we serve during this time of crisis. Here’s how you can set up recurring giving: Go to: and follow the prompts. On your Hope City App, click on the “Giving” option and follow the prompts. You can text “GIVE” to (417) 612-9341 You may still give personally by regularly mailing a check to Hope City Church P.O.Box 3057 Joplin, Mo 64804 or by dropping by our church office. Thank you for being the Church with us. You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. ~ 1 Peter 2:9
