An answer to prayer
Over the past two years, we have been fervently praying that the Lord would give us a church: a way to connect weekly with the families we serve at Hope for Kids, to pour the truth of God's Word into their lives and consistently be present in the community of Springfield. In 2017, God answered our prayers!
We have been given the usage of a local YMCA Outreach Center on Dwight Street. Each Sunday afternoon, Hope for Kids children and their parents join us in this space for a hot meal, worship time, a sermon for the adults and a fun and meaningful class time for the kids.
We are already seeing God beginning to work through this church service! Relationships we had already built with these children are being strengthened. Parents have a safe place to hear the Gospel, grow in their faith, and receive counsel. We have already seen one father's salvation come about as God has worked through the Hope for Kids Family Church!
Hope for Kids parents:
Please join us at Hope for Kids Family Church on Sundays at 1pm at 1772 Dwight Street [the YMCA North End Outreach Center]. We would love to see you there! Transportation may be available if needed: please call or text (413) 566-6291 for more information!
VOlunteers: you can get involved!
Here are a few ways your family can get involved with Hope for Kids Family Church!
1) Come see HFK in action any Sunday after you attend your own church! We would love to have you. Join us on Sundays at 1pm at 1772 Dwight Street [the YMCA North End Outreach Center].
2) We are currently in need of supplies to run this church service more smoothly and efficiently. We are looking for two mic stands, a Keurig, a portable speaker, and small tabletop toys and activities like matchbox cars or coloring books. Please let us know if you or your church would like to meet any of these needs!
3) We are always in need of drivers to transport families to church! If you would like to join our church transportation team, please contact us today at (413) 566-6291!
4) Please pray for this new ministry of Hope for Kids. Pray for the blessing of the building authorities, for more families to join us at church and be reached with the Gospel, and strength and encouragement for our team.
We can't do this without you! Thank you for your support and prayers.
