Wellsville: Hope Center Lists Initial Hours and New Facebook Page
The Hope Center, a new outreach ministry of Allegany County churches, has established its initial opening hours for December in Wellsville and developed a new Facebook page for updates on its activities.
The facility, located at 4104 Bolivar Road (State Route 417) - Suite 5, across the drive from the McDonald's drive-through, will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m Saturdays, along with other times by appointment. Seminars and workshops will be held at designated times.
The ministry also has created a new Facebook page at www.facebook.com/
HopeCenterAlleganyCounty for updates. Information on the Hope Center previously had been listed under its sponsor, Mission Genesee Valley, Journey to Transformation Facebook page. The change was made due to the significant number of activities to be developed at the Hope Center site in coming weeks and months, organizers report.
During initial startup, the Hope Center will serve as a drop-in center with free coffee and other beverages and refreshments, an information and referral center where individuals can be connected with community services they may not be aware of, a drop-off point for a Christian lending library to be opened as soon as appropriate shelving is donated or purchased, along with a free books giveaway ministry, and an education center for churches and the public with ongoing seminars on significant issues facing individuals, families, and the community and county. The education offerings are expected to start primarily in mid-January.
During startup, the Hope Center will evaluate future opening hours and those for its education events to best serve the public. Hope Center-based assistance services are free.
Church-associated volunteers and children and adults wishing to participate in a new reading tutoring ministry also will be able to find out more about these opportunities during the openings or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or (484) 435-0503. Individual assessments for reading assistance will be by appointment only.
Due to Facebook filtering the information it distributes to subscribers, the Hope Center suggests joining its direct mail list for updates by e-mailing email@example.com with the word "Subscribe" in the subject line and one's name, organization or community of residence, and Transformation Initiative or the Hope Center in the email to receive either or both of the direct mailings.
Mission Genesee Valley is a coalition of churches, other Christian organizations and individuals seeking community transformation and revival in the greater Allegany County area. It hosts several prayer gatherings during the month, along with other activities. Further information is at www.facebook.com/
