/// We Gather Together
We respond to God’s grace in worship by offering our whole lives back to Him (Romans 12.1-2)- this includes our finances. We encourage all who consider DH their church home to practice first fruits giving (give first and live on the rest). You can place a check “Downtown Hope” or cash in our offering box today or give online at www.downtownhope.org/give. Your generosity goes to extending God’s grace to our city through the people and work of Downtown Hope. You can find our financial updates on our giving page.
What if I have never given before? A simple way to begin is by committing a small percentage and increasing each year. The 10% pattern of offering in the Old Testament is a helpful mark to grow towards.
Do you enjoy coffee? Do you have the gift of hospitality? Are you just look for a low risk way of getting involved on a Sunday Morning. We are looking for people to get involved helping set up coffee and tea on Sunday mornings. Please reach out to Jen Healy (email@example.com).
Join us each Sunday at Downtown Hope for one of our Gatherings- 8:30am, 10:00am or 11:30am.
/// we live in community
MOPS meets from 9:30am-11:00am on the first and third Friday of each month at Downtown Hope. If you are interested in joining, please register using our group's unique code (WQ4Y) at mops.org/join. For more information contact Erin Godwin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We would love for you to get connect in one of our communities that meets throughout the week. Communities are the primary place we are encouraged to grow in our journey with Jesus through the spiritual disciplines as means of grace. We believe every follower of Jesus is called to walk with others to discover or grow in Jesus. Contact Steve Kuzner (email@example.com) if you are interested in connecting in a Community or banding with a few friends to begin one yourself.
The first simple step to consider being known in our church is to attend one of our Discover Downtown Hope orientation lunches on the first Sunday of every month. Here you will have a chance to hear our vision, ask questions and get to know some of our leaders. You can RSVP online or contact David Bempong (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Child dedication is a way, before the Lord and the church family, to dedicate our children to the Lord and commit to raising them in the way of Jesus, that one day they too might profess faith in Him. At Downtown Hope, we support this idea and provide opportunities twice a year for child dedications.

/// We Love Annapolis
One of the ways we live in the reconciliation we have received in Christ is to walk in friendship with our neighbors living in the grips of poverty, addiction or ailment. There are four elementary school boys in need of some face time with caring adults/families. Would you consider taking 45 min. of your week for a trip to McDonalds with one of these boys? Please reach out to Janice Keating (firstname.lastname@example.org).
At our Gatherings we have shared an immediate need to replenish the food pantry for our friends in the Newtowne Twenty and Woodside Gardens Neighborhoods. Please bring all goods to Downtown Hope during any of next Sunday’s Gatherings and place them on the table by our front doors. Reach out if you have any questions: email@example.com
