The annual Easter Sacrificial Offering will be received during all services on Easter Sunday (April 8). It has been customary in the church since its earliest years to receive an offering for the less fortunate on the day we celebrate what we have received from Christ. So for the last two decades Hope for New York, Redeemer’s mercy and justice arm, has been the recipient of the Easter Sacrificial Offering. 100% of the gifts received will be given to Hope for New York affiliate organizations that support various New York City populations including inner-city youth, low-income families, immigrants, the homeless, the elderly, and those living with HIV/AIDS.
What kind of impact does a gift to Hope for New York have?
• $100 can provide meals to 60 people living on the street
• $250 can support the mentoring of 8 at-risk high school students
• $500 can provide medical and optometric care to 25 homeless patients
• $1000 can support legal aid volunteers to provide services to nearly 160 clients in need
In addition to the offering collected on Easter Sunday, Hope for New York is accepting online donations at hfny.org/donate/
Checks (payable to “Hope for New York”) can be sent to Hope for New York, 1359 Broadway, Suite 410, New York, NY, 10018.
Please pray that our congregation would be moved to give generously on Easter Sunday, and please also prayerfully consider how you might support Hope for New York’s efforts to serve the poor of our city.
