Casa de Esperanza (House of Hope) is an outreach ministry of the First United Methodist Church of Tuckerton for the Hispanic community of Tuckerton and its surrounding areas. Our ministry is comprised of a group of disciples committed to provide resources to the community so that people can find and experience the redeeming love of Christ and grow in knowledge, commitment and service to others.
Casa de Esperanza is a ministry focused in loving God and our neighbors. Jesus said: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself”. This commandment drives the life of our ministry. We love God in two ways: when we worship Him, and by obeying Him. (We love God…and we love our neighbor). We love our neighbors by focusing on their needs rather than the needs of the ministry.
Casa de Esperanza is a ministry committed to the growth of each of its participants. We believe that people deserve personal attention to help them reach God’s potential for their lives. We are committed to providing an atmosphere that promotes spiritual growth, the ability to be in ministry and serve in the place God has called participants to collaborate for the expansion of His Kingdom.
Casa de Esperanza Church School and Services are held at the Church each Sunday at 12:00PM.
The vision of House of Hope is to make the Hispanic people of our community feel at home and to provide a safe space in which they can have an encounter with God. We believe that the Hispanic community in Tuckerton can be refreshed and satisfied. For ten years, House of Hope has aimed to reflect God’s love and to share God’s message with all people. There is still much to be done but I certainly appreciate the collaboration of other members of our church and other congregations. Through the next years we will continue working for more achievements and more milestones. We will continue to work to make House of Hope a home for those who need it, and a prophetic voice in the Tuckerton area. With your help and God’s blessing, we will do it.
