The Women of Hope had the opportunity to fellowship with Compassionate Hands. What is Compassionate Hands? They are a network of Wilson County churches and individuals showing the love of Jesus and caring for neighbors in need. The goal is to end homelessness in Wilson County.
Some of the programs they offer are:
-Hosting shelters every night through the winter months. Keeping the homeless safe, warm, and fed.
-Community meals on Tuesday and Thursday’s from 12-2- food, showers, laundry, clothing, bikes, tents, basic medical care, and prayer. With classes and consultations with resource providers before and after the meal.
-Care services-assistance with applications and ID’s, mail service, online access, professional caregivers
For more information on how to help or volunteer at Compassionate Hands, please see Jan Cahill or one of the Women of Hope.
The Women of Hope had a fantastic March meeting! Our guest speaker was Lisa Cathcart with the Pregnancy Care Center. The Pregnancy Care Center empowers individuals to make life-affirming decisions through education, counseling, and compassionate care based on the ministry of Jesus Christ.
-The PCC has been serving this community since 2009
-The Center offers alternatives to abortion and unplanned pregnancies in a way that is neither political nor social, but spiritual.
Some services they provide are:
-Pregnancy tests and ultrasounds
-Educating on other options
-Ongoing care through pregnancy and for two years after birth.
-Free Biblical counseling for individuals who have abortions previously
-High School educational programs through school partnerships.
**Throughout the upcoming weeks, we will share more information on the Pregnancy Care Center and how we, as a church family, can support this amazing ministry.**
WOW!!! Just look at all the snacks in the back of Cindy’s car. Thank you to everyone who donated snacks for the BCM program at Cumberland University. The BCM makes snack bags for their athletes as they travel to away games. When the snacks were delivered to the BCM, they were so appreciative of what Hope Baptist had collected!! 😊 This is a wonderful opportunity for them to share the love of Christ to a very diverse population of young people! We are still collecting if you’d still like to donate! Just see Cindy Gibbs, Ginger Ash, Debbie Foote, or Rebecca Case for more information! #womenofhopelebanon
Recently, Hope Ladies partnered with Foster 180 and adopted a 15 year old girl who is in Foster care in Wilson County. The ladies collected money and went shopping for her.  We are so grateful to be able to bless this young girl and we pray that her Christmas is blessed!
On Thursday, December 9, Hope Ladies met to assemble gift bags for our members who are unable to come to church. We are blessed by church family of love on one another in tangible ways!
