Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.

Matthew 25:40

Hope Week is a one week charity campaign we do every year as a church. We believe that through serving with different charities, we could be blessings to those around us: and by responding to the needs of our cities, we could bring the light of hope into our cities.

Partnering Organizations

Are you ready for Hope Week? This time, we will be coordinating with 9 charities across the cities of Taipei, Taichung, and Kaohsiung, to bring forth hope and blessings.

In the week of 10/14 - 10/19, by serving, we believe that you will find yourself having real connections with the people, and even make a direct impact to their lives! Let us look forward to put into action, to share our love and warmth!

We invite you to join the volunteers of Hope Week; Friends and families are welcome as well! Let us take a meaningful step together, to transform our cities with hope!
