Bradley's House of Hope Child Sponsorships

By sponsoring a child, your gift enables the ministry of Bradley’s House of Hope / Tesoros de Dios (God’s Treasures) to continue to provide services for a child in the areas of: Physical Therapy, Hippo Therapy, Special Education and Transportation. It costs approximately $90 monthly to provide therapy and services for each child. You may choose to sponsor a child from one of 3 options:

$30 monthly ($360 yearly)

$45 monthly ($540 yearly)

$90 monthly ($1080 yearly)

A table is set up in the Gathering Room with profiles of the children, Child Sponsorship packets and Sponsorship Application Forms. You may choose a child or you may be matched with a child. If you choose a child, you may take their profile page. If you choose to be matched with a child, their Profile will be sent to you. You will receive two updates throughout the year. The Child Sponsorship Packet has all the information you will need such as; where to pay, how to pay and where to get more information.


"Take Them a Meal"

Did you know our Nurture Committee coordinates meals for those who could use a helping hand during an illness or difficult time? If you would like to provide meals please contact Cynde Sroufe at 524-9300 or email: Once you are signed up, you will be notified by email when meals are needed.

Online Giving

Always available

During the summer due to vacations & activities and in the winter, due to inclement weather, church attendance goes down. As a result, church giving goes down as well. One way to help us smooth out the peaks and valleys of operating income is to sign up for automatic recurring giving online. It's fast, easy and secure. Just go to our website,, and click on Giving. You can set up automatic weekly or monthly giving from your checking account or from a credit card, or just make a one-time online gift. If you don't have internet access, contact the office for a paper sign-up form.
