Day Of Caring

New Hope Presbyterian Church's 9th annual Day of Caring will be held on Sunday, September 20, 2020.

New Hope's Day of Caring will be a bit different this year.  We will have 3 options.  1) Select one of twenty traditional projects, 2) Select one of fourteen suggested random acts of kindness, or 3) Select your own random act of kindness (and tell us what you picked).  Volunteer sign-ups will be online only - PLEASE REGISTER USING THE FORM AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS WEBPAGE.

The Day of Caring is a special day of ministry, where every member of New Hope (along with guests) will have the opportunity to practice Arms of Love, which is one of New Hope's Six Marks of a Disciple.  We will not have church service on that Sunday, rather we will send hundreds of volunteers from our congregation to serve the community.  There will be a volunteer opportunity for every person, regardless of age or ability!  For more information contact Mark Thacker at 727-8611 or .
