"In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive." Acts 20:35

Hope's youth worked to live out this verse in 2014 – both in our community and the Mission trip to Colorado. Hope in Action Colorado 2014

From their annual leaf raking for congregation members and even Pastor Chuck's yard, to holiday parties (Halloween and Christmas) they helped host at Inner City Mission, to painting the fence at the Boys & Girls Club our kids were enthusiastic and tireless. Well, ok, maybe they complained a little about blisters from their rake handles, a long ride across Kansas, and had to scrub pretty hard to get paint off their hands, but through it all they felt pride in truly making a difference.

A thank you and recognition also needs to be noted for the many adult volunteers who worked side-by-side and provided the yummy food before, during, and after activities.
