Jesus Has Left the Building...

And we're following him!      

Sunday, May 31

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic our Jesus Has Left the Building and We're Following Him event will not be our typical physical project together, but will be an individual project we can complete on our own. 

For our second Jesus Has Left the Building and We're Following Him of 2020 on May 31, we will be serving Mutual Ground in Aurora! HOPE enjoys a strong relationship of service with Mutual Ground, an organization that provides education, awareness, and life-changing services to empower individuals, families, and communities to end the cycle of domestic and sexual violence. 

We have three options to serve Mutual Ground: two monetary and one active:

The monetary options will include collecting donations to purchase supplies on Mutual Ground's wish list as well as collecting money to purchase a restaurant-delivered meal for 9 adults and 6 children on Sunday, May 31st.  

To donate via bank transfer visit: and click on MAKE A DONATION

To donate via credit/debit card visit:

For our active option, because we had originally planned to do outdoor chores beautifying Mutual Grounds' campus, we want HOPErs to get out and beautify their neighborhoods! We encourage individuals and families to find a location near home and pick up trash in the area. 

Community Gathering on May 31st

We will host an afternoon ZOOM session at 3pm to reflect on our service and talk about ways we can continue to serve in these unique times.  Click here to join the Zoom gathering. If you need the password please contact Pastor Lucas.

The JHLTB team will continue to provide information about how to serve this month: please keep watching your email and the HOPE UCC Facebook group for more details!
