5th Sunday Collections

In months with 5th Sundays, we take special collections in support of selected social justice organixations.

  • Hope on a Mission

    In June of 2024, our 5th Sunday Collection benefitted Hope on a Mission.  Founder CaraMia  spoke to the Fellowship briefly at the Sunday morning service on June 16, providing a heart felt explanation of her mission of hope.  

    From the website: Hope On A Mission (HOAM) is a street outreach ministry seeking to restore dignity, with love & grace, to homeless, addicted women (and men) in the streets of Poughkeepsie, NY, and beyond. We do this through acts of compassion at our Pop-up Provisions events throughout the city, four times a week, every week, all year long. People surviving homelessness, and/or addiction can get a hot meal, bottled water & snacks to-go; clean, dry, seasonally appropriate clothing and footwear, & personal hygiene items, through RELATIONSHIP, COMMUNITY, and ACCEPTANCE , no matter what.
