Living Hope, Normandy Park
Living Hope Church of the Nazarene, located in Normandy Park, Washington, has been involved in compassionate ministries for several years through many different projects such as Caring Hands. Every Monday morning, Caring Hands group (our angels, as we like to call them) gathers together to make quilted blankets for the Seattle Union Gospel Mission or the Tacoma Rescue Mission, who then distributes them to homeless people who won't come to the shelter, and are sleeping in parks, under bridges, etc. Caring Hands has been making these bed rolls for over 10 years. The blankets are colorful and bright to cheer and thick and warm to ward off the cold NW weather. Our Caring Hands ladies also pray over every blanket and the potential recipient- trusting in the Lord's compassion for those with great need. These women match up gifts/talents and creativity with loving care and compassion in order to express God's mercy and grace for the poor. Living Hope is also part of Transform Burien, a local organization made up of different congregations from different Christian denominations in order to serve the community by providing food, clothes, and most importantly prayer. Along with the formerly mentioned organization Living Hope is connected to Praisealujah, Audio Books, and American Preparedness all in hope of showing compassion.
