“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger an you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” –Matthew 25:35-36
New Hope Baptist Church Missions ministry’s guiding purpose is serving the needs of God’s people in the church and community. Missions’ currently provided opportunities for our members of the congregation to share the hope of Christ through:
SERVING AT DAYBREAK SHELTER IN JOLIET, IL
We prepare and serve food for the homeless every third Sunday of each month.
Our Women’s Agape Inspirational Team (W.A.I.T.) sponsors a Clothing Giveaway in August every other year. This free service will provide families in Bolingbrook and surrounding communities with complete outfits, shoes, coats, and accessories.
FEED OUR STARVING CHILDREN
New Hope participates in this ministry by packing much needed food to be shipped overseas to many impoverished countries around the world. This food will feed many starving children and their families.
THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS BASKETS
Each November and December New Hope distributes food to families in Bolingbrook. Each basket contains ingredients to prepare meals for their family.
ANGEL TREE PROGRAM
In December we spread joy and the love of Christ to the less fortunate during the Christmas season. Clothes and toys are purchased to donate to children in our community as well as Daybreak Shelter.
