Celebration of Hope is a time to open our eyes to the movement of God through the local church around the world! From rural Zambia to the urban centers of India (and everywhere in between) God is on the move through local churches thinking creatively about how to fight poverty and injustice so that lives are transformed and Jesus is made known. Communities are providing the next generation with better educational opportunities, people are pooling resources to empower entrepreneurs to start businesses, churches are purchasing land to dig wells so that more people have access to clean water, no matter their background or beliefs, and all this is made possible when followers of Jesus decide to build a better future, together!
During weekend services, we’ll hear stories and teaching from God’s Word about the power of pursuing a life of compassion and justice. To learn more about weekends and find a service near you, click the button below.
About one in ten people around the world suffer from hunger—and that’s not ok. When Nehemiah was faced with injustice, he first fasted and prayed.
This year at Celebration of Hope, we are fasting and praying from April 15–20. You can eat simply or sacrifice something else, all in an effort to grow your heart for the challenges faced by people who are food insecure around the world. Just like Nehemiah, we will fast before taking action, then collectively give an offering to our global partners, ensuring that less people go hungry, every day.
When you give to Celebration of Hope, you directly fuel the impact of our partners in their communities. Every gift—from $1 to $10,000—makes a difference. Our goal is that 100% of our congregation would make a sacrificial gift so that we can hit our goal of raising $1 million for our global partners! Giving opens April 14.
Three ways to give:
