Through a variety of efforts, the Hopewell Congregation supports the ministry of Forsyth Jail and Prison Ministry. Through the Jared’s Hope mission group within our congregation, we are collecting toiletry items, greeting cards, and postage stamps (so that imprisoned persons can send mail to their loved ones). During the month of July, we are collecting shampoo in full-size bottles. If you would like to join us in this outreach, bring your donation by the church, or forward it through one of our members. We’re not always in the office, so you might check in with us before you drop by.
