The Northern Virginia Church of Christ partners with the Northern Virginia Chapter of HOPE worldwide to bring hope to meet the needs of children and families in our neighborhoods. Volunteers from the Northern Virginia Chapter have been serving the community for more than 20 years through days of service, partnering with local service organizations, the Faith’s Reach Saturday Academy mentoring program, and our annual Season of Service.
“He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.” Proverbs 14:31
