Heart 2 Hand Ministry

Holdfast, HOPE is coming!   Because of the love God has placed in our hearts we reach out with our hands to touch the lives of those in need.  Our community and world outreach ministry is designed to demonstrate the love of God  by meeting congregational needs and providing outreach ministries to our community and the world.  We achieve this goal by offering a number of practical services to those in our church and community and by an intentional effort to touch the world through our missions giving.  As there are five fingers attached to our hand, we have five branches of ministry that Heart 2 Hand Ministries provides.

Loving One Another
We want to love one another by serving and meeting people’s practical life needs.  We connect those with a need to those who desire to give.  Our Housing Team is responsible for helping those in need of minor household repairs.  In addition, they help get donated items from “point A to point B.”  We also assist refugees attending our church with their assimilation into the American culture. Van transportation is provided for those needing a ride to church on Sunday morning and Wednesday night. The greatest way we love one another is through our prayer ministry.  Several groups meet at various times for corporate prayer, and we also operate an email and telephone prayer chain.

Outreach Ministry
We believe that we can change the world through our missions giving.  We designate the third Sunday of each month for a world missions  project, and an  offering is received and given for that project.  We also share the gospel of Christ with our community through special church events, worship services, and community activities.  We “go out” in to our community through our nursing home visitation, and home visits to the sick and shut-ins.  Our ministerial team contacts and visits those who are incarcerated.

Food Panty
Our church purchases food from the Blue Ridge Food Bank which enables us to provide a box of food monthly for 70 – 100 families.   Food is distributed on the third Saturday of the month.   We provide food to the needy who attend our church as well as those in our community. 

Teaching One Another
We assist the non-English speaking community by providing English as a Second Language (ESL) classes two nights a week.  One-on-one financial counseling is also available for those struggling to make ends meet.  Other practical life issues are addressed through our numerous Bible classes held on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights.

Research/Referrals/Resources
Our church strives to connect those in need with local agencies, others means of funding/financial support, and additional referrals that will help meet their needs.  We also make referrals to those in need of services that are not or cannot be provided by our church.  Additionally, resources such as pamphlets or other suggested reading material is provided. 

If you have questions about or would like to participate in our Heart 2 Hand Ministry, contact the church office.
