Students Making Adult Choices oKay!
SMACK is about youth saying “yes!” to bestowing a holy kiss (hence the smacking sound) of love on people in need in our community through service. This is an adult choice not because all adults make it but because it is the mature choice, the choice of a grown-up follower of Christ.
SMACK not only gives the youth an opportunity to serve God by serving others, but each April they ask people to sponsor them for an eight hour work day to raise money for Hope’s annual trip to Mexico to build a house for a family in Tijuana. In this way they make another adult choice: taking responsibility for their goals.
“Then the King will say, "I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it for me.’” Matthew 25:40 (The Message)

Hope is committed to serving others not only in our own community but where ever we can in the world. We sent a group of people to Mexico to build a house for a Claudia and her daughters on June 9, 2012. The legacy of Hope's dedication to this ministry over the years is we have built 13 homes; we have been blessed by our continuing connection to many of these families and we have been blessed by God for allowing us to be part of his plan. This is a holy experience, start talking to God about how you can be part of it.
