HOPE WEEK is an experience you won’t want to miss! From growing in your faith, to building new friendships and deepening old ones, you’ll be challenged in exciting ways. Being a part of Hope Week means compelling compassion, building character, serving selflessly, and faithfully following… all driven by the Word of God. All throughout Metro Detroit, you’ll be part of incredible opportunities like sharing the gospel with people, working on various work projects to beautify the community, running kid’s camps, and more!
Over the course of 6 days, you will have the time of your life while serving with the Pontiac Campus and The Dream Center (current 6th and 7th graders) and in the communities of Detroit, Dearborn, Southfield, Pontiac & Warren (current 8th-11th graders). Everyone will be staying at Rochester College for the week as we launch each day to serve!
When a student arrives on Saturday at Rochester, they will be assigned to a team (family) of students and leaders. The families (teams of Woodside students and leaders) will be broken up by Oasis and Wake and be given a site/organization they will serve for the week. On Saturday and Sunday, the families begin to spend time together, plan for the week and will participate in training with all of the Hope Week Families. Their day consists of being present at their site Monday-Thursday from about 9AM-3PM, after morning devotions and prayer. After each day at their site, we will have different activities and sessions for everyone to be a part of!
When a student registers for Hope Week, they are committing themselves to being present the entire week of service. This is from Saturday afternoon at 4:00pm through Thursday night back at the Troy campus for the Hope Week Celebration at 7:00pm.
