Giving Hope

Hope is the gift God gives to us, and we to one another, that allows us to imagine a better day and work for a better world. Hope gives us eyes to see not only the many signs of disruption and disorientation, but also those of compassion and courage. In a Covid-19 year, Laurel Heights has been a community of faith in which such signs abound.

During the month of October we will reflect together about financial generosity as an expression of hope.
