In an effort to better meet the needs of guests, Center of Hope is experimenting with new hours this fall and winter. Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 4, our downtown ministry will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursdays. Our goal in this change is to be available early enough for those who might start work late morning, but open late enough to meet the needs of those who get off work mid- to late afternoon. By being more available, we anticipate meeting more needs for those we serve.

However, to accommodate these hours, we will need more volunteers. If you have been feeling the Spirit nudge you, please consider this opportunity to serve our Lord and make a difference in people’s lives. We are looking for four to eight new volunteers who have a desire to put their faith in action. For more information, call 334-9789 or email Randi at
