What is Your Bag of Hope Story?

We want to hear your Bag of Hope Story

Back in October 2015 we handed out over 200 Union Gospel Mission Bags of Hope. The bags contained a Bible, water bottle, toiletries, cold weather gear and information on UGM services for the homeless. We distributed these bags to our congregation at no charge and simply asked for three things:

  • That you would keep the bag in your car and give it to a homeless person when you felt led.
  • That you would explain to them that you are commanded by Christ to care for your neighbors.
  • And to ask, "How can I pray for you?"  

Have you had the opportunity to give your Bag of Hope away? What happened when you did? Email Jerry Meras, jmeras@fiveoakschurch.org,  with your story.
