Many churches have reached out and asked how they can further support us. One way is through Hope Rising’s Church of the Month initiative. In short, we’re looking for 48 supporting churches to pick one of our 4 Centers and a month that they’d like to bless that Center each year. During that designated month, the church can serve that Center in any number of ways.

The following are ideas of how your church can bless a Center. You can do some of these, all of these, or come up with your own ideas.  It’s completely up to how your church feels led.

    • Praying for the Center daily

    • Performing a “Prayer Walk” in that Center once during that month (1 hour before opening, church members show at the Center and pray for the various clients, volunteers, staff, rooms, and ministries. Call a few weeks beforehand to coordinate the early-unlocking for this event.)

    • Providing healthy snacks for the client waiting rooms (bottled water, fruit, granola bars, etc.)

    • Encouraging their congregation to do a volunteer activity that month (landscaping, cleaning facilities, participate in that month’s envelope-stuffing, painting, etc.)

    • Hosting an event (baby bottle boomerang fundraiser, VBS activity, baby shower) to bless our clients

    • Providing a special donation through missions giving or a special love offering

    • Providing snacks for the volunteers and staff (pop for the fridge, various treats for break room)

    • Provide snacks or lunch for the staff during their monthly staff meeting
