Compassion Outreach Ministry
HopePointe partners with different compassion ministries in our area. Read on below to learn about ministries we're currently collaborating with and how you can become involved.
Love Fosters hope
LFH is an incredible ministry supporting and encouraging foster children in the Montgomery County region. God’s heart is broken for the orphaned. Many children and teens in foster care have been abused, abandoned, and neglected. God calls His Church to care for these children. You may not feel called to foster or adopt, but there are many other ways to get involved: mentoring, assisting teens who have recently aged out of the foster system, helping with fund-raising, and many other opportunities. Check out the website for more information, www.lovefostershope.org.
Another way to become involved is through one of the LFH summer camps. If you'd like information on the 2016 dates, areas of service, or application process, please download this LFH Camp Information document and volunteer camp application.
Centro Santa Cruz
Clothing and Household Item Collection for Panes Y Peces (Loves and Fishes), Saturday, March 19th.
Bring your gently used items to HopePointe, 8 am-noon. We will be collecting items in the Worship Center Atrium. These items will be used by Centro Santa Cruz in establishing a secondhand shop, serving the needy of the Greenspoint area.
Centro Santa Cruz is a ministry of Misión Santa Cruz, a sister ACNA church, who has been ministering in the Greenspoint area of North Houston since 2009. With a population of 48,000, Greenspoint has 30,000 Latino residents, the majority of whom are undocumented Central Americans.
Centro Santa Cruz is seeking to lease space in the midst of nine vast apartment complexes in order to establish an ESL Program in partnership with Harris County Community College, a Workforce Connection for day labor, janitorial, and domestic work, a Computer Literacy Clinic in partnership with the Mexican American Institute of Greater Houston, to train people in basic marketable computer skills, an Immigration Legal Aid Clinic in partnership with the ACNA Anglican immigrant Taskforce, and a “Panes y Peces” Thrift Shop.
Misión Santa Cruz will host a Wednesday evening service dedicated to sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and equipping people for the building of God’s kingdom on earth. Misión Santa Cruz has celebrated the Eucharist in the area each Sunday since Advent I, 2008, and currently rents the chapel of an area funeral home.
