Mission and ministry opportunities are happening right now even if we are not meeting in our building. Here’s how we can still be proactive in making a difference in our community:

  • While at the store, remember to pick up a few items for the Linn Community Food Bank. You can drop them off here at the church or take them directly to: First Presbyterian Church. 310 5th St. SE. Cedar Rapids.
  • Write a note to someone (teacher, friend, neighbor, family member), even better do it in your own handwriting and send it in the mail. If you would like to send a note or card to one of our members or friends of Hope UCC, contact Pastor Mary Beth, mbhartenstein@gmail.com or 393-2400, for a name and contact information.
  • Find five things in your closet and donate them to a local organization, such as Olivet Mission, who helps those in our community with such needs.
  • Check-in on a neighbor or friend.
  • Have some books you would like to donate? Place them in our Little Lending Library, located on 9th Avenue by the stop sign.

We are the church, gathered and scattered. Make a difference in someone’s life and in this community today!
