Local church offerings support New Hope’s many ministries—children, youth, young adults, families, community outreach, resources for all of them —the church’s administrative staff; literally everything that happens or is produced by New Hope (outside of our pastor’s salaries). Funds that are marked tithe go directly toward supporting the worldwide Seventh-day Adventist Church, funding pastors (including our own), missionaries and administrators around the world.

If you have any questions, please send us an email or call 301-854-1866.


Giving of your time and means is a faith statement of thanks to God and a way to support your local church.

There are a lot of things that happen when you give to New Hope. We not only take care of our own, but we are able to use the resources entrusted to us to bring Jesus to our city and around the world.


The members at New Hope have formed a partnership with Grassroots, an emergency, transitional and walk-in crisis shelter in Howard County, Maryland. Grassroots is a 24-hour resource to individuals and families in need in Howard and nearby Counties in Maryland.

New Hope Grassroots Ministry (NHGM) assists in meal preparation and service once a month. On the third Saturday of each month, we prepare and serve dinner to the homeless men, women and children that reside in the facility.

The NHGM is working towards increasing this to two Saturday dinners and is always looking for new volunteers who are willing to serve or cook for these events.

The families are always happy to see us and the contributions by New Hope members have been helpful and also appreciated as donations have been reduced as a result of the state of the economy.

Sarah’s House is a supportive housing program offering emergency shelter and project-based supportive housing with an array of other services for families experiencing homelessness in Anne Arundel County.

Safe shelter, daily meals and casework support are provided to the homeless families that reside at Sarah’s House, with the goal being to effect positive change and independence in the lives of the families served.

New Hope Sarah’s House Ministry provides dinner for the 25 to 50 residents at the facility on the first Saturday of each month. We are always looking for new volunteers with a passion for feeding the homeless. We believe our ministry is commissioned by Matthew 25:35 “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”

Join us! We would love for you to be a part of our vital ministry! Covid-19 has curtailed our direct interactions with Sarah’s House residents, but we look forward to the time when we can return to serving our meal to the families.

In the summer of 2008 members of the New Hope S.O.S. Missions team fell in love with the people of Mozambique as they helped build a school, operated medical clinics, drilled water wells and conducted a Vacation Bible School.

The school that New Hope’s team helped build opened in February of 2009. We were excited about that! However, many of the children in the surrounding neighborhoods could not afford the tuition to attend the school. New Hope also opened a way for them to attend by creating a student scholarship program that enabled us to sponsor students to attend the school.

In over 10 years the school increased the enrollment considerably and so did their needs. Your donations will assist with the following:

  • Open a secondary school
  • Help build a gymnasium
  • Help build a library
  • Build a drain water system around the perimeter of school building
  • Increase the number of well-equipped classrooms and office
  • Acquire more desks for the classrooms

By donating you will receive a blessing for helping children that otherwise might not receive a proper education. Just imagine how education can change a child’s future!

New Hope’s Garden of Hope is the brainchild of member Lindsey Taylor, who thought of the garden as a way to provide fresh vegetables for our local ministry efforts.

The garden is a 40’ x 50’ plot of land behind the trailer on church grounds. Crops grown include cherry and Roma tomatoes, green beans, cucumbers and various peppers, in addition to basil, parsley and dill.

Garden-grown fare regularly makes it into the meals we prepare and serve monthly for individuals at Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center, a walk-in crisis shelter in Columbia, Md.

Among this year’s harvest: tomatoes, onions, green beans, squash, cucumbers, peppers, cabbage, broccoli and flowers. In addition to these crops, some new ones entered the mix, including blueberries, cherry tomatoes, watermelon, cantaloupe and pumpkins.

There are always opportunities to pitch in in the form of an upcoming cleanup and rebuild, which will involve building more garden beds, putting down weed-block material, remulching and more.

Do you enjoy getting your hands dirty and seeing things grow and bloom? To learn more about New Hope’s garden and how you can get involved, email us.

Food for seniors is a community service project that delivers groceries free of charge to economically challenged seniors in Howard County.

The program has been ongoing jointly, during the school year, between Pointers Run Elementary and Clarksville Middle School since September 2006.

Around the 15th of each month 6th grade students, faculty and staff at CMS bring in healthy, nutritious, non-perishable diabetic foods for seniors. Students sort and bag groceries once a month during their science classes.

Students and their parents deliver the bags of groceries directly to the seniors’ doors later that day around the third week, or the 15th, of each month. The senior residential building, about 15 minutes away was chosen because everyone in this building lives on less than $29,100 per year, or as little as $9,000 per year. The transportation and physical limitations of seniors make it difficult for them to get to area food banks.

In just four years, over 4000 bags of groceries and toiletries have been delivered. New Hope’s Sharing Our Pantry ministry keeps the program going through the summers when school is not in session.

New Hope’s Sharing Our Pantry ministry has delivered almost 1400 bags of groceries to seniors during the months of June, July and August over the past 7 years.
