The Bash

Mission Outreach, the Bash and You

We are all aware of the great needs in the community around us. Needs for food security, stable housing, employment training and mental/emotional/spiritual shelter during difficult times.  We recognize that no one person can supply these needs on his or her own.  This is where House of Hope’s Mission Outreach efforts play a key role.

Our church is more than a beautiful building on Summit Avenue. At the core of this church is a deeply embedded sense of mission and commitment to the greater community.  We actively support organizations and individual outreach programs that align with our values of social justice, human rights, theological education and artistic expression.  

Each year Mission Outreach receives funding requests from individuals and organizations and each year the church receives far more requests than it can fund.

Harvest of Hope Bash: A Benefit for House of Hope’s Mission Outreach 
Friday, November 3, 5:30 p.m. in the Kirk Parlour and Great Hall

Mark your calendar for the Harvesting Hope Bash 2017, a delicious harvest dinner courtesy of The Winzer Stube German Restaurant in Hudson, WI. There will be games, music, live and silent auctions all in the name of raising funds for Mission Outreach. Your support translates directly to feeding the hungry, providing housing, and helping people in need learn work and life skills in our community. Volunteers are always welcome.

Consider donating a live or silent auction item. Items could include a stay at a lakeside cabin, box seats at sporting events, music or theatre events, hosting a gathering in your home, instruction in something you’re good at (knitting, pie-making, etc.)—you get the idea. Contact Linda Lane at or Annie Yetter at if you have a donation or would like additional information. We look forward to your company at the Harvesting Hope Bash 2017.
