Local church gives $25,000 donation to House of Hope

Ada —

Grace Christian Fellowship recently donated a check to the Ada House of Hope for the sum of $25,000.

For the 20 years that the House of Hope has been in existence, the church has been supporting the vision behind House of Hope.

“Our church is proud to be a part of the vision and ministry provided by the House of Hope," said Spencer Cody, media minister at Grace. "When our church learned of the need, the Grace leadership went to work immediately to ensure that we keep the House of Hope going strong in our community.

"I learned that the House of Hope reaches out and effectively promotes the awesome value of a baby’s life, ministers to hurt and broken families, and builds people up in Christ while never charging a penny to those they help.

"In my opinion, I am sure that the churches, organizations, and businesses in our local community will also help the House of Hope reach their financial goal because they are such a blessing to us.”

House of Hope can be found on Facebook as Ada House of Hope. Information on meeting times at Grace can be found on its website at
