KidsHope USA: One simple thing will make a big difference in the life of an at-risk child: One-on-one, positive attention from a responsible, caring adult. Kids Hope USA develops these one-on-one relationships through the creation of church-school partnerships that pair church members with at-risk kids in supportive, mentoring relationships. Kids Hope USA mentors spend just one hour per week, reading, talking, playing and listening to a child at school. By helping the child feel loved and valued, they help that child to learn, grow and succeed. Contact Doris Theune for more details.
FirstHope Community Meal: FirstHope Community Meal is a free meal offered to the Sheboygan community. It is open to everyone. The program is a joint ministry of Christ Community Church and Hope Reformed Church. It is underwritten by an anonymous donor and the support of the two churches, along with a grant from the RCA's Regional Synod of Mid-America. It is also served by volunteers from each of the churches and Faith Reformed Church in Cedar Grove. We have many volunteer opportunities to help in this ministry. Contact John and Betsy Warmus for more details.
Short-Term Mission Trips: Hope Church supports a group of missionaries every two years from our church to go out and serve the Lord. We welcome high school youths and adults to form a team and serve. We support our missionaries through many fundraising events such as brat frys, candy bar sales and our annual pizza sale. Our 2017 Mission Team will serve at an orphanage in Puebla, Mexico.
Children & Youth Ministries: We have many opportunities to serve within this ministry. If you have an interest in sharing your gifts in our Nursery, contact Jill Sohn.
