Missions

Get in the Game

CommPres has many different ways you can get involved in Missions and serve the church and community.

Hope Partnership

In 2011, Community Presbyterian Church in Celebration recognized a growing number of families and children experiencing poverty and living in hotels and motels along Highway 192. They knew the faith community had a role to play, and the idea of Community Hope Center was born. ‍ In 2013, Community Hope Center’s vision came full circle, with our service center’s grand opening to provide holistic care to all those in need in our community. A building that was once an IHOP and then a Mexican restaurant became the new home of hope in our community.

Over the next 10 years, what started as a two-person, mostly volunteer operation providing case management, clothing, and food has grown into a staff of over 20 providing services from emergency relief to homeless outreach, employment assistance, identification services, family advocacy, and a plan for a housing community. We were providing an entire continuum of services and wanted a name that reflected this. Enter Hope Partnership.

Hope Partnership encapsulates the work that Hope Center had been doing all along by highlighting the other services and programs many may not have been aware were provided in our community. Hope Center still exists to serve families experiencing homelessness and poverty in hotels and motels along highway 192, and we are also introducing new entities. Hope Cares will provide emergency relief, homeless outreach, and navigation services, and Hope Works will provide a pathway to employment, healthcare, and housing through day labor and vocational training.

Hope Partnership is growing in exciting ways as we realize our full potential as an agent for poverty alleviation in this community.

Kenya

Utange Orphans

Founded by Paul and Debbie Scott-Robinson, this amazing ministry not only provides food, shelter and education, but also offers a loving, caring, nurturing environment for children in need. The Kenya mission’s greatest need is for 45 more sponsors for the 2021 school intake. The second highest need is for funds to finish the Celebration High School building.

 

$50 could feed 5 children on the feeding program
for one month 
$100 would pay for 10 students to receive a raincoat
$1000 could sponsor 2 students for a year or 1 student for 2 years at Celebration High School (CHS)
$1200 will buy 30 desks and chairs for the new intake (the furnishings are locally made)"
$3000 will equip the computer room at CHS with 20 computers
$5000 would build half of the new worship center planned for the 3rd floor of CHS.
Releiving poverty by feeding and educating orphans and disadvantaged children in Kenya is a wonderful mission opportunity to help spread God's word and give a hand up to those in need. There are many ways you can get involved. For volunteer opportunities contact info@utangeorphans.org
