          7 Of the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from the [latter] time forth, even forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Children's Christmas Lists Posted on Donormite.com
Psalm 127:3-5 says, "Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them."
We have asked the men at New Hope Center to give us their "wish list" for children or grandchildren they have under the age of 12.  When purchased, the gifts postedHERE will be sent directly to MetroHope so our residents have a special gift to give their children or grandchildren for Christmas.
Last year all the gifts were purchased within two weeks!  Let's beat that record and get them all purchased by Sunday, December 14th!
Amazon Smile
Another innovative way to help your favorite charity is to shop for your own gifts on Amazon using Amazon Smile.  Simply type smile.amazon.com into your browser or on your mobile devise and do your regular shopping.  
On your first visit, you'll have to click Choose Charity and search "Metro Hope Ministries" and there we are! Once selected, the AmazonSmile Foundation will send .5% of the purchase price from your eligible purchases to MetroHope.
It's that easy!
Traditional Giving
If you just like old fashioned giving methods, we welcome any cash or check donations that are mailed to: MetroHope Attn: Kelly Larson, 2739 Cedar Avenue S, Minneapolis, MN 55407.
You can also go to www.metrohope.org and click GIVE to support our families using your credit card.
Can You Keep Up?
If you'd like to keep up with what's going on at New Hope Center (for men) and Healing House (for women and children), be sure to LIKE ourFacebook page or follow us on Twitter!

MetroHope also sends out a Quarterly Newsletter through the mail.  If you would like to be added to that mailing list, respond to this email or call Kelly at 612) 843-5646

Finally, a great way to keep up with all the action around here is to attend our monthly Pancake Breakfast! These take place the first Saturday of each month from 8:15 to 9:30am at 2739 Cedar Avenue S, Minneapolis, MN 55407. They consist of free pancakes and bacon, worship, and testimonies from the residents graduating our programs that month!  Don't miss it.
