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. Super Saturdays are held most second Saturdays of the month where we meet needs of people in our surrounding communities and through nonprofit organizations.


Opportunities to serve through Love Works are highlighted below. To get involved, contact Love Works here.
