Jesus tells us in Mark 14:7- “The poor you will always have with you…” As children of God we believe that the way we view and serve the poor and needy among us is is a reflection of how much we love God and Jesus. Jesus also tells us in Matthew 25:40- “Truly I tell you, that whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
As a congregation we partner with HOPE worldwide, the benevolent arm of our churches, with the desire and goal to lend a helping hand. We offer many opportunities on local and international levels to practice “pure religion” as described in James 1:27. The events and programs we provide span the calendar year with service opportunities such as:
- Supporting Shepherds of Good Hope with their Christmas Hamper Program by organizing and preparing food baskets for single parents.
- Organizing community event that promote healthy family time in the Ottawa communities.
- Participating various cloth drives for the men’s mission.
- Organizing and collecting gift for Children aids society
Whenever and wherever there is a need we strive to respond with an outpouring of love and support.
