Hope 1312

Hope1312 is a local ministry that was launched in 2014 by a small group of community members, social workers, foster parents, youth pastors and business executives, who were tired of seeing kids linger in the foster care system and kids from hard places continue to struggle to find hope.  The ministry desires local churches to join the ministry team by offering their prayer support or any other type of support. For more information please go to www.hope1312co.org .

 This month they will have their Royal Family Kids Camp. It will be different this year like so many other summer camps due to COVID-19. Thirty-five kids from foster care and hard to reach places will receive a "Camp in a box". Will you join us in prayer each day as these kids experience summer camp?
