One of the most inspiring qualities of Jesus was his compassion. Matthew 14:14 says, “And when Jesus went out he saw a great crowd and he was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.” Jesus noticed the needs of the people; he not only felt compassion for them but he was moved with compassion. His awareness of the situation and his emotions motivated him to act and initiate change. Compassion is not merely a feeling of sympathy or pity. It requires action. We at Grace New Hope are moved with compassion for our local and global community. It is our objective to “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone” (Mark 16:15). Partner with us as we fulfill the great commission.
True compassion moves us to do something.
We are huge advocates of fostering children. In order to make the process easier, our church provides care for families fostering children. Each family is surrounded by a support group that makes meals periodically, offers childcare and provides encouragement.

If you are interested in fostering or joining a support team contact Claire Tidwell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
