Covid-19 Updates

A message from Senior Pastor Rufus Smith regarding the LIMITED REOPENING OF ‘IN-PERSON’ WORSHIP at Hope Church:

Because Phase II has been extended by our Mayors and our Health Department, we also are extending our reopening date.

The good news is we WILL begin reopening and allowing small groups to meet in some outside spaces and our larger, inside spaces soon. Stay tuned for more information and instructions on this...

  • We will continue to offer online-worship and believe this is still the BEST option. 
  • And for those without underlying medical conditions, nor caring for vulnerable family, the following is under consideration.

WHAT A BLESSING!

Our AMAZING Kitchen Ministry & College Ministry Staff and Volunteers have fed 1,240 local doctors, nurses, hospital & front line workers from Baptist East, Methodist Germantown, Baptist Call Center, DCS and Regional One! They have also made deliveries of essential items to 110 households and traveled over 300 miles in the process!

Want to help?

The Urban Ministry is recruiting more volunteers for our Operation Delivering Hope Initiative. Since early April we’ve been able to deliver hundreds of prepared meals to homebound Hope members and Friends of Hope with weekly food and supplies. We work hand-in-hand with the Kitchen Ministry to ensure minimal contact using their established safety and health protocols. Currently we deliver on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning at 3:00 p.m.

What steps are involved in the delivery process? Click below to read more and to fill out a volunteer form…

Volunteer Information 

Make a mask. Make a difference!

St. Francis Hospital reached out to the Chamber of Commerce to ask if local churches would be willing to help them start to build a supply of masks that will either be used to go over the medical grade mask to prolong the use of them, or they will be used for administration employees and other staff that are not on the “front line”. If you want to help in this effort we would love to have you! There are several ways to help, whether you can sew or not! Fill out the form below and let us know how you want to get plugged in! Once your form is received, one of the project coordinators will be in touch via email. Watch the video by clicking the link below for instructions on how to make the mask. NOTE: All supplies will be provided and all sewing will be one in the comfort of your own home.
