  • Need Help or Want To Help

    As we break from meeting in large groups, several opportunities have emerged to help our communities.

    We offered support to Mobile and Baldwin Schools in their effort to feed at-risk kids while they are out of school. They are only able to do so much, then many will be hungry without help. Healthcare workers will face workloads that they have never seen before and we want to safely encourage them, and the list is growing.

    We are building a list of people who are able and ready to serve others. To sign up as a ready volunteer, go here cityhope.cc/help. Know that all requests for help that come in will be considered carefully and efforts will be made to mitigate risk to you and others.

Three Ways to Respond

God’s people respond well by praying first, filling our hearts with God’s word, and increasing our generosity.

Praying First

Go to God as your first priority, not your last resort. We believe God is working supernaturally while we are working naturally.

PRAYER TO PRAY
Most Gracious Father,
We place our confidence and hope in You.
We ask You for protection, healing, and provision.
We ask You for wisdom to know how we ought to conduct ourselves as the body of Christ before a watching world.
We ask that You would open our eyes to see ways to love our neighbor as ourselves.
We ask You to use these uncertain and difficult times to bring renewal to our homes and communities. We ask that, by the power of Your Spirit, You would draw people far from You to place their trust in Jesus.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.

Join us for Night of Prayer on Wednesdays at 6:30p cityhope.cc/live

Filling Our Hearts with God’s Word

The unshakable foundation for our lives is God’s Word. It is our source of wisdom, comfort, and faith. It helps defines our current reality and illuminate our path forward.

SCRIPTURES TO MEDITATE ON
“When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down,
your sleep will be sweet.
Have no fear of sudden disaster
or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
for the Lord will be at your side
and will keep your foot from being snared.”
— Proverbs 3:24-26 NIV

  • Joshua 1:9 NIV
  • John 16:33 NIV
  • John 14:27 NIV
  • John 3:16-18 NIV
  • Philippians 4:4-7 ESV

Increasing Generosity

God’s people don’t shrink from difficult times, instead, we react in faith believing that God uses our increased generosity to meet needs and shine a light of hope into the darkness people around us are experiencing.

One of the biggest ways you can help is to automate your giving. Set up recurring giving so that no matter how often we are able to gather, God’s work can continue

WAYS TO GIVE

  • Click Here to Give Online
  • Text From your mobile phone, simply text the amount you’d like to give and  “cityhope” (ex. $50 cityhope) to 45777
 

Look for ways to step out and bless the people around you:

  • Who is anxious?
  • Who is directly affected by these events?
  • Is there anyone in your world who can’t travel home?
  • Lost their regular work?

ACCORDING TO THE CDC, HERE ARE SOME STEPS WE CAN ALL TAKE:

  1. If you are high risk, such as older adults and those with underlying chronic medical conditions, avoid crowds as much as possible.
  2. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  4. Stay home when you are sick.
  5. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  7. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

 

 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
– Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)

 

We are trusting God, praying for those who are sick and scared, and working to prevent the spread of this disease. As Christians, we believe prayer has power, so we seek help from the Lord.
