Up-Rooted Mission Project
Sunday, September 10 Hope UMC begins a 4-week sermon series focusing on the ways in which we are “Rooted” in Christ. Reflecting on our own “rootedness” we are reminded that so many of our brothers and sisters have been Up-Rooted by natural disasters such as Hurricane Harvey and the fires in Montana.
From September 10 to October 1 the Ministry Design Team is inviting friends of Hope UMC to sign up online at the link below to bring items for UMCOR Cleaning Kits. All donated items can be dropped off on or before 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, October 1 to the labeled bins located along the back wall of Hope’s Fellowship Hall.
On Sunday, October 1 from 9:40 to 11:40 a.m. adults, youth, and children are invited to gather together to help assemble the kits in Fellowship Hall. For questions regarding the Up-Rooted Mission Project, please contact Stacey Hilzer at [email protected] or Kate Stapleton at [email protected].

Sign-Up to Help Feed the Homeless with Us
Hope UMC is in their second year of partnering with After Hours to make and serve peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to our friends without homes in Civic Center Park. We meet Friday mornings at 10:00 a.m. in the kitchen at Hope Church, this is a great time for fellowship and sandwich making. After finishing making and bagging up lunches we head downtown at 11:00 a.m. to hand them out, usually returning to the church by 1:00 p.m. This is a great opportunity to see your preparation of these lunches make a difference to those who are hungry and thirsty.
If you are unable to joins us, donations of the following items are much appreciated: peanut butter, jelly, brown bags, sandwich bags, napkins, chewy granola bars and chips.

Meals on Wheels
“Providing food, friends and fellowship to neighbors.” Meals on Wheels is a not-for-profit organization providing hot meals to the home bound, frail, elderly and disabled five days a week. Without the delivery of nutritious food, many persons would be unable to continue living in their own homes.
Hope members volunteer to deliver meals every Wednesday from the Littleton Meals on Wheels site and every Monday from the Aurora Meals on Wheels site near Heather Gardens. Hope also provides financial support to the organization. Volunteers are scheduled on a monthly basis, or as a substitute driver. If you are interested in helping with this easy and rewarding mission, contact Donna Ralston at [email protected]
