Love Works

Love Works is Hope's Ministry of Care and Compassion that serves the local communities in tangible ways: one person, one family, one community at a time.

Ongoing Love Works Ministries

Food Pantry

The food pantry serves our church family, Upper Merion, and surrounding communities. Quarterly food drives are held for the pantry and to distribute the remaining food to other local food pantries. Volunteers can help during the week to organize or distribute food. 


Clothing Sharing Room

Furniture Ministry


Our furniture ministry picks up new and used furniture and delivers it to men, women, and families that are in desperate need of furniture. Delivering almost every week of the year. 


Norristown Hospitality Center   

Preparing breakfast for homeless clients in Norristown. We not only provide a hot meal but we have the opportunity to develop relationships. 


Meal Train


The Meal Train Ministry serves to provide meals for a brief season to families at Hope that may be going through a difficult time of loss or illness. These volunteers are emailed a calendar of opportunities to select a date in which they will provide and deliver a meal to the family being supported.


Super Saturday Love Works Ministries

Bingo at Brandywine Nursing Home



A great ministry for the whole family as we travel to Norristown to play Bingo with the residents at this facility. 


Orphans & Widows Ministry


Collecting Hope Packs to bring hope to foster children in transition. We also assist widows who need maintenance done around their home, yard work, errands, and companionship. 


Maggie’s Ministry


A ministry created to support children and families with long-term illnesses or long-term hospital stays. We make gift baskets that include toys, hygiene products, magazines/books, gift cards, gas cards, socks, pillows, etc. and deliver them to CHOP. The team that has been approved to actually go to the hospital is limited, so mainly our needs are donations and volunteers to help put baskets together. 


American Red Cross


Blood drives are held 3 times a year at our Main Campus  Volunteers serve with set up, tear down and giving direction at the blood drive. 


Forteniter’s Dinners


We host a quarterly meal for a group of 50+ people that live in the Norristown Community with intellectual disabilities. Main dish, salad and dressings, drinks, desserts and paper products are needed for the event, as well as people to mingle and to serve the meal.
