Community Meals: an opportunity to serve

Second Thursdays, monthly | 4 pm | 185 High Street

The second Thursday of each month is HopeGateWay’s turn to provide the full team for the free community dinner. Help with set-up at 4:00, serve dinner at 5:30, and stay to help with clean-up if you can. Please sign up on the clipboard.

GPS: Grow through Prayer & Scripture

How about starting the new year with a new spiritual practice? We send out a daily email with a prayer, reflection, or Scripture reading – an excellent resource for your daily quiet time. If you don’t already receive it, subscribe now at www.hopegateway.com or through our Facebook page.
