Blessing Bags

Blessing Bags provide some basic necessities to those in need, whether they’re homeless or for any reason. More than providing necessities, the bags “bless” their recipients with dignity offered to them by loving hearts and without judgment.

“Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” -Matthew 25:40


The Need

Persons and families may need basic necessities, because they’re homeless or for other reasons. Basic necessities include such items as food and drink, toiletries, socks, paper and pen, even first-aid items. The current issue of “Christ in Our Home” is always included as a gift from Hope. Volunteers are needed to donate items and/or fill gallon-sized plastic bags with donated
“blessings,” and to personally “bless” the needy with a Blessing Bag. Bags are also available at Hope for pick-up by those in need. Monetary gifts are always welcome and will be used to purchase items to support this ministry.

Who can join the Blessing Bags Ministry?

Anyone can join this ministry. A loving and giving heart, a non-judgmental spirit, and willing hands can join. No previous experience is
required. A checklist of desired items can be found in the main hallway at Hope, above one of the donations bins.

What’s the time commitment?

Members of this ministry are asked to dedicate two hours per month to support the ministry.
