Hope Lutheran Church is involved in a wide variety of activities as we express our thankfulness to God by offering ourselves in service to others.
Amish Mission "Food Pack-Out"
On the second Saturday of each month we gather at the church from 4:30-5:30 p.m. to assemble boxes of food for the homeless and needy population in Lower Bucks County. Volunteers are always welcome. Most of this food comes from the local Amish Market, but we do welcome donations of canned goods (only cans, please) which can be dropped off at Hope on Sundays or during normal business hours. For more information you may call the office at 215-946-3467 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes
Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse which distributes shoebox-sized Christmas gift packages to underprivileged children worldwide. Every October Hope Lutheran Church and School collects boxes filled with gifts (wrapped and labeled). Hope Lutheran Church and School is a "Drop Off" collection site for other individuals and organizations.
Our congregation is a support congregation for Family Promise of Lower Bucks (FPLB). This program is a 24/7 free program that includes shelter, meals and comprehensive services for families trying to get back on their feet. FPLB plans to reopen in the Spring of 2018. Hope Lutheran's role will be to assist a host congregation (who will be housing these families) by providing meals and volunteers.
Blessed Margaret of Castello Home for Crisis Pregnancies
The Blessed Margaret of Castello Home for Crisis Pregnancies is the longest continually active crisis pregnancy home in the Delaware Valley. It is a residential home for pregnant women (age 18 and above) offering support, guidance, and physical security in a loving atmosphere throughout a woman's pregnancy. The Home offers love and support in a stable environment. Free of charge, residents receive everything needed to deliver the baby and to begin a new, independent life with the baby. Hope Lutheran collects items to be donated in recognition of Sanctity of Life Sunday.
