How to Support the Mission of Hope Grimes
At Hope Grimes there is never any pressure to give. We believe that God calls us to give as we are able. And we know God loves a cheerful giver. What you choose to give is always between you and God. In fact, our pastors and ministry leaders have absolutely no idea how much you give or whether you give. Some people wonder how that approach can work. Yet, we have always made our budget at Hope. So, we will continue to leave that matter to each individual and God.
“You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” 2 Corinthians 9:7
Ways to Give
1. Give Online
An easy way to give to the mission of Hope Grimes is online. You can give as a guest, or you can login to your Hope account. Select Grimes as your campus and give to the general budget, building fund or any special mission projects going on at the time by selecting the appropriate fund. You can even set up recurring giving to make it easy.
If you would like to give via text, text “Give $” to 515-291-9093 (ex: Give 10 = $10). The first time you do this it will take you to the website to select the Grimes Campus and the appropriate fund. It will save that selection for future giving so that you can simply text your gift any time you choose. It’s that easy.
3. Tried and True Method
For those that prefer to give with cash or check, we also have a black offering box in our atrium just outside our Worship Center. This secure box is another safe way to support the mission of Hope Grimes.
Paying off the Building
We have two building campaigns that we ran in previous years: “Building Hope” and “Hope Ahead.” Although those campaigns have officially ended, any money that is given to those funds going forward goes 100% toward paying off the mortgage on our building. Selecting those funds when you give online or putting the names of those funds in the memo line of a check will ensure that those gifts go directly to debt payoff.
