Growing Hope is a joint venture between Love INC of Boone County and Boone County Farm Bureau Inc.  This whole project, from beginning to end, is a celebration of our community coming together to help one another.

This exciting project, now in its fourth year, will raise funds for the Transformational Ministry Program at Love INC.  Through this program, the Transformational Ministry Coordinator works with neighbors in need to help break the cycle of poverty.  There are currently neighbors in two weekly classes, learning life skills to regain their footing in our community.

The most exciting part of this project will take place in September when we will gather 8-10 combines to bring in the 31-acre harvest as a community.  This will be a day of celebration, community, and achievement–for what God is going to do in the lives of our neighbors!  We hope you can join us for this celebration.

It was a beautiful morning as Pastor Andrew Bowen led those gathered at the Growing Hope field in prayer, using Psalm 67 as a guide.  What a wonderful reminder that all we have, and all we do, should be dedicated to the God who is faithful and who will bless those who seek to honor Him.  “May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you.  Then the land will yield its harvest, and our God, our God will bless us. God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear him.” Psalm 67:5-7NIV

The two middle pictures illustrate that God will use even a simple telephone pole to remind us of His presence and His blessings!
