Elim Church

Hope Avenue


We share the love of Jesus with people experiencing homelessness by offering breakfast, lunch and a listening ear on Sunday mornings.

What I’m interested in seeing you do is: sharing your food with the hungry, inviting the homeless poor into your homes, putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad. – Isaiah 58:7

  • Breakfast – Breakfast is prepared and served by volunteers.
  • Shower and Laundry – Showers are available at Elim and volunteers provide clean clothes and laundry services.
  • Bible Study – Bible study and discipleship groups teach about God’s love for all people.
  • Worship – All who attend Hope Avenue are encouraged to join the congregation in worship.
  • Food Distribution – Groceries are available to anyone in need of food assistance.
  • Clothing Closet – Clothes are available to anyone in need.

During extreme cold temperatures, we also open up the building as an emergency overnight shelter.  Recently, KARE11 did a segment about the shelter.  You can view it by clicking here.

Thank you to Ben Smith who put together the following video as a high school project.  The video shows what Hope Avenue means to a few of the many families and individuals who come to Elim on any given Sunday morning.
