Sending out people to serve the community

in Christ’s name…

Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you!

As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” ~ John 20:21

At Hope Ridge United Methodist Church we invite people to serve in the name of Christ whose mission on earth was to share good news by feeding, healing, and eating with people who were on the margins of their society. Jesus made himself available to people and loved them regardless of their issues, backgrounds, culture, or history. You are invited to serve in this mission work to the community in Christ’s name through Hope Ridge United Methodist Church if you are a first-time guest, regular visitor, or committed member. Below you will find the various opportunities to be sent out in mission through Hope Ridge United Methodist Church You can get connected with these mission opportunities by contacting the church office.
