Bridge of Hope encourages its members to be involved in our community, keeping our eyes open to serving others right where God has placed us--our neighborhoods, work place, and where we do daily life.
Various ways we do this as a body is with ministries such as "His Hands, His Feet Sunday Service," the "Winter Gear Drive", "Hallelujah Party," Celebrate Recovery and more...
HIS FEET SUNDAY
Each year, on the first Sunday in May, our service consists of going into our community and serving in various ways. This includes helping clean up local parks, painting, yardwork, and doing work at a women's crisis center thrift store.
WINTER GEAR DRIVE
In the past few years, Bridge of Hope's Outreach Team has organized and implemented Winter Gear Drives. The churches in town are invited to participate by collecting winter coats, snow pants, boots, mittens, cloves, hats, blankets, etc. These items are then picked up, washed, mended, sorted and displayed at the Ministry Center, or elsewhere, and are available for anyone in our community who is in need of such items. It's a blessing to be able to serve our community in this way and to know people are being helped. The Outreach Team is thankful for all who have contributed with donations! Left over items are passed on to the Hope Food Pantry who continues to distribute these and other needed items.
The Hallelujah Party is an event that Bridge hosts every year on October 31. We invite the community to this free event where they can enjoy hot dogs and chips, games for the kiddos and prizes! Would you like to be involved or volunteer to help? Contact the church office for more information.
Due to Covid-19, the Hallelujah Party was not offered this year. Instead, an alternative way of celebrating was created -- the Hallelu Drive Thru! The Hallelu Drive-Thru costumed crew handed out bags of treats to kids as they drove through with their families. To spread some cheer and fun for our community, costumes and decorated vehicles were welcome! The event took place in the Sioux Center Middle School parking lot from 4-6pm on Saturday, October 31. This event was organized by Bridge of Hope with the support of many generous Sioux Center businesses.
Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps people overcome hurts, hang-ups, and habits. CR shows people the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process using 12 steps and eight principles. The Sioux Center Celebrate Recovery Chapter meets at 7pm each Monday night at the Bridge of Hope Ministry Center located at 43 2nd St. SE. Our meetings consist of praise and worship, fellowship and small group meetings. The last Monday of each month we have a potluck meal that begins at 6:30 with the normal meeting to follow.
