MISSIONS SPOTLIGHT

NEW HOPE COMMUNITY CHURCH
New Hope is our sister church that serves the South Sacramento community. Here are some recent highlights of some things God is accomplishing through our partnership:

Pre-4th of July Picnic
On June 30th, New Hope hosted their annual community event at Freeport Park. Almost 100 volunteers from LifePointe helped staff this outreach event – thank you to those who served! As a result, 27 people from the community made decisions to follow Christ!

The Gift of Groceries (TGOG)
With the help of 170 volunteer hours/week, TGOG feeds about 300 families every Thursday at New Hope Community Church in South Sacramento. Volunteers from LifePointe pick up food donations from Raley’s every week to meet these needs. So far TGOG has given away over 24 tons of food to families in need!
