Making disciples through knowing Christ, growing in relationships, and sharing the Gospel.

HOPE TO HOME
Hope to Home shares the love of Christ through helping people in crisis. This is accomplished by providing basic furniture and household items to people that find themselves in crisis situations. Donations are made by members of our church & community. We use these donations to assist those in need in the Charleston area. Volunteers are needed for a variety of roles from delivering furniture to spending quality time in conversation and prayer with the families we’re serving. You will be working outside and moving furniture during your service opportunity. Please ensure that you are comfortably dressed, and bring a water bottle!

The Good News Bible Club is an after school, once a week club that is led in a few of the elementary schools in the area. The purpose of the Good News Club is to share God’s love with boys and girls and establish them in the local church. It is a fun and exciting time that gives a clear presentation of the gospel to kids. This is a great opportunity to jump in and help as many hands are needed from coordinating snacks to being a disciple leader. There is a place for those who want to volunteer (volunteers serve on Wednesdays after school from 2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. No preparation is required, just come as you are and love on the kids each week).

EAST COOPER MEALS ON WHEELS
East Cooper Meals on Wheels delivers daily nutrition to residents within our service area who are homebound or unable to provide their own meals.

East Cooper Meals on Wheels is responsible for communicating background check and volunteer status to you.
FEED THE HUNGRY
Did you know … Hundreds of homeless (or marginally homeless people) will go without a hot meal today. As Christians, Jesus has called us to help the “least of these.” (Matthew 25:40). The Church at Lifepark has partnered with several churches around the Charleston Area to help meet the hunger needs of our local homeless population by providing free meals, a bible study, and an opportunity to form a relationship.
