As we say goodbye to 2012, we look back at all the wonderful blessings that God has provided us.
We are so thankful for all of our supporters who have been so faithful this past year. From those who have financially supported us to those who have donated countless items for our Thrift Stores and food bank programs, we couldn’t reach our city without you! God has given us great friends and we are so happy to fight hopelessness in Hagerstown with you!
We want to thank all of our volunteers for helping to make this a banner year at The Hope Center! We’ve had so many individuals, churches, Scouts & other groups helping out all over The Hope Center. From painting, to cleaning, to cooking, to serving food, to packing food boxes, to preaching & teaching, to singing, to hosting Christmas parties & fundraisers, to helping at Camp Wild, our volunteers really help to make a difference in the lives of others! We appreciate all the time that each of you has invested this year at The Hope Center! And we hope to see you again in 2013!!
We especially want to say a big thank you to all of our staff! These devoted people sacrifice a lot to help keep the message of hope alive at The Hope Center. Our staff are hard-working, faithful people who understand the importance of this ministry to the lives of all of our guests. Each day is made possible because God supplied us with the best people to reach Hagerstown! We are so thankful for each person who is a part of our staff!
As we countdown to 2013 in just a few hours, please remember to keep The Hope Center in your prayers for the new year. Combating hopelessness is not the easiest task in a world like ours. Please pray that God continues to bless our ministry with faithful supporters, volunteers & staff.
And please remember to keep each precious guest of The Hope Center in your prayers. These people are the reason that we are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We work tirelessly not just to give them something to eat or a place to sleep but to provide them with the answers and provide them with the hope of Christ.
If 2012 wasn’t spectacular for you, just remember that with each new day, and new year, God’s mercies are fresh and new. He’s able to do all things and with each rising sun there is a promise of something better.
It’s time to say goodbye to 2012 and welcome 2013! May God continue to bless & protect you and your loved ones in this new year! Thanks again for being our friends and helping to change lives!
Happy New Year!
