OTHER MISSION PROJECTS
MENTORING AT SPOTSWOOD ELEMENTARY – Do you have any spare time between 4-6 pm on a week day? Would you like to make a difference in the life of a child? We can reach out into our community by building relationships and sharing the love of Christ with children at Spotswood beginning in January with our new mentoring program. No experience is necessary … just a willingness to play board games, read books, help with homework, share some smiles, and make some lasting memories.
MISSION TRIP – Each summer we have a group of volunteers go on a mission trip. This year our group went to Camp Hope Tree in Blue Ridge, VA. Camp Hope Tree is a ministry of Hope Tree Family Services. Founded in 1890, Hope Tree is committed to serving at-risk youth, as well as people with intellectual disabilities. Both construction and non-construction jobs were completed.
DRESS A GIRL AROUND THE WORLD – Dress a Girl Around the World is an organization that clothes children in various parts of the world with at least one high quality dress. These dresses are hand delivered with smiles, prayers and often a Bible or a cloth doll that matches the dress. Sadly, for most of these precious girls, the handmade dress they are given will be the only dress they ever own. Each year we hold Sewing Circles as we come together and sew these dresses. We also have individuals, groups and other churches who sew and donate dresses. In 2015, we had over 190 dresses made!! If you, your group or church would like to get involved, please contact the church at 540.433.2456.
SATURDAY COMMUNITY BAG LUNCH – HBC has served our neighbors lunch each Saturday morning for over 20 years. We have 10 teams who rotate on a weekly basis. Each Saturday morning between 11 am and 12 noon, they prepare a hot lunch for those in need within our community and also send a bag lunch home with each person. If you or your group would like to volunteer one Saturday, please contact us to find out how to get involved.
