HOPE FOR THE BAY

“And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus:’It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35 NLT
GIVE HOPE TO SOMEONE
Who do you know is in need of some hope today? Maybe it’s your neighbor, friend, or family member who may be particularly struggling in this season. What better way to act on the hope you’ve received than by sharing it with others? The Hope Box is a starter care package that you can personalize and give to share hope and encouragement with others!

Pick up your Hope Box on July 20-24 anytime between 11am-1pm, 5-7pm & July 27th 11am – 1 pm, 5-7 pm

SEE FOR YOURSELF

At Echo, we don’t just receive hope and leave it there, but we want to take the hope that God has built into our lives into our communities and across the Bay Area. We’re inviting everyone at Echo to serve not just once, but to experience the joy of consistently investing in uplifting others in your local communities.  Invite a friend, or your small group, to join you!
