Salvation Army Bell Ringers Needed

In this year of uncertainty, The Salvation Army has seen a vast increase in need for assistance during the pandemic. We are confident that God will help others, but we are hopeful that part of His plan is to send an army to ring bells this Christmas season. We have seen more families apply for our Pathway of Hope program, and more individuals and families come for meals every day. We can’t support these individuals without your help. We are so thankful for all that Hope Lutheran has done in the way of partnering with The Salvation Army.

Bell ringing begins November 13 and concludes December 24. To bell ring, you can sign up at RegisterToRing.com or call Cheryl at The Salvation Army, 701.356.2691. To make an online donation, please visit FargoSA.org.

Down Home

Looking for a new way to help those marginalized in our community! We’ve got just the thing for you!

What?  Down Home is looking to grow a prayer team that would intercede on behalf of the needs of Down Home and the community.  We realize this team may start out small and grow over time. Down Home is a non-profit that decorates and fully furnishes the homes of families who are transitioning from homelessness to permanent housing. We stay in contact with them for at least their first year to help with the transition in any way we can.

Why?    God has called us to this mission of helping families who are transitioning from homelessness to permanent housing and we realize this is a big calling.  We are seeking God’s vision for Down Home and desire to be in His will.  We are requesting God to multiply the little that we bring Him (time, treasure, talent) to accomplish big things in the lives of His children in need (Luke 9:16).

Who?    Prayer Warriors. Anyone who is willing to commit to weekly prayer for Down Home and the community needs.  People whose schedule allow them to meet at Down Home Wednesday mornings.

Questions? Call Kirstin at 701.212.7576
