Love to shop?
Grab a tag!
Each tag represents an item that can be purchased for one of our city partners. Learn more about our partners below, then click on the link in each section to browse their corresponding tags. When you see an item you would like to purchase, “claim” the tag on the form, purchase the item(s), and return the gift to the church by December 4th.
Don’t have time to shop? Let a volunteer do the work for you!
As a church, we have committed to helping our partners during this holiday season. If you’re not sure where to give, let us do the work for you! All money that we raise through the Hope Project will be used to purchase unclaimed tag items and to help our city and global partners directly. You can donate today!

You can drop-off items you purchased at two locations during weekend services: Ghent or Montrose. See details below.
