Mission Of HopeLoving God . . . Loving People . . . Changing Our World
So that alleviating poverty in our community can become reality.
Mission of Hope
Have you ever stopped to think about how many people are in need in our community? Mission of Hope is a ministry of Silver Creek Fellowship that started as an outreach to the homeless by serving meals under the Center Street Bridge and has now become a mobile food bank and food pantry serving Silverton and Southeast Salem. Through our partnership with Marion Polk Food Share, we have distributed thousands of pounds of food to those in need.
Mission of Hope is the highlight of my week. God is with us each week as we feed, care, and pray for the people in our community.
How Can I Get Involved?
Mobile Food Bank
Most food banks operate during normal business hours making it difficult for those who may need food support access these services. MOH distributes on Saturdays or other times that would make the resource more accessible. On distribution day a team of 10 to 15 volunteers transports food to Houck Middle School and sets up tables and displays the food that is available and check people in. Food is made available on the basis of income and family size and no one is turned away. After distribution remaining food is packed up and returned to the MOH warehouse. We also serve once a month from our Silverton Campus. Contact Steve Tipton if you would like to serve!
Feeding the Homeless – Under the Bridge
On the first Saturday of each month a team goes and serves those who are homeless under the Center St bridge. Volunteers set up tables and chairs and serve folks “restaurant style” Help is always welcome as we serve these folks seeking to preserve their dignity. Food prep, transportation, coat drives and serving are just some of the ways you can be involved. Contact Rob Ambrose if you would like to serve!
