What is Hope For All?

At Soul City church, we are committed to being a House of Hope. As we close out this year, we want to continue walking alongside individuals and families in our community by being a visible movement of hope and love in our city. 

Soul City Church wants to invite you to bring Hope For All, a unique year-end campaign where you can receive and give hope.

Hope for All FAQ

The goal for the Hope For All giving campaign is $300,000.  It will be  allocated in the following ways:

  • $30,000 (10%) to the Gratitude Weekend Thanksgiving Baskets
  • $30,000 (10%) will be disbursed for Christmas Store purchases of toys, coats and other items for families. 
  • $240,000 will be allocated to the construction costs for the House of Hope renovations.

Each Thanksgiving basket costs $50 and feeds one family. The baskets include a turkey and all the sides needed to make a warm, filling, holiday meal.

The construction costs are estimated at $850,000 for completion of Phase 1 for the House of the Hope Lobby & Support Space. In addition to allocated funds from this giving campaign, we plan to use funds already donated to the Ready for More campaign to finance this Phase 1 construction project.

The space will include a new separate entrance off of Racine, a warm and welcoming lobby space, two new classrooms, a de-escalation room, and an office space in the northwest corner of our building.

We’re planning for House of Hope to open in Spring of 2021.

The House of Hope is for anyone walking through suffering. This includes folks who need support for ongoing challenges, as well as those who are walking through an unexpected crisis. House of Hope will provide care and space for healing, no matter the magnitude of one’s suffering. Whether you need support & community, resources, or someone to walk alongside you, House of Hope offers help that leads to tangible and spiritual healing for people who attend Soul City Church as well as people in our community.

Hey Soul City!

A quick message for those joining us in person this weekend:

Recently, the CDC shared new guidelines for wearing face masks in public and in indoor settings to promote safety in areas with substantial risks of transmission. Therefore, we are requiring that masks are worn while in the building on Sundays.

We are continuously reviewing the CDC guidelines and what our next steps will be – as your safety remains our priority.

Don't Miss Anything.
