Music is an integral part of life. During some food distributions at Gateway to Hope Ministries, we provide music, which helps connect us with God and each other, breaking cultural and religious barriers. Our moods can be changed, depression can be combated, and joy can be expressed!

The Bible references the importance of songs, worship, and praise in the church. Music fulfills God’s command to use our talents to glorify God. We also learn about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the promises it carries.

Through hymns and songs of praise, people are made to see life and God in a different light. We are able to see the wonders of God’s creation and the universe around them. As Saint Augustine famously said, “He who sings prays twice”.

Here at Gateway to Hope Ministries, we embrace the recycling initiative. Volunteers devote much time and energy to assure that everything that can be recycled, is recycled.

Recycling is an important step in reducing waste and conserving resources. By recycling, we can reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills and help to conserve natural resources such as trees, water, and minerals ♻️
