Community Service in Indianapolis, Indiana | Week of Hope

Week of Hope is packed with practical acts of love and service. Students build meaningful connections as they serve people through our strong partnerships with local ministries and nonprofit organizations. They’ll learn Christ-like empathy and compassion for others as they meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of disadvantaged children, youth, and adults. As students serve in the name of Jesus, they’ll develop friendships with the people being served, with other teams, with their own youth group, and, most importantly, with Jesus. Denominational differences disappear as like-minded youth work together for a common purpose.

Where

Indianapolis is famous around the world for fast cars and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but the city has a lot more to offer visitors. The state capital of Indiana has won praise for reinventing the bicycle and pedestrian experience in its downtown. The art world paid attention when the Indianapolis Museum of Art unveiled the largest contemporary art park in the country in June 2010. For sports fans, Indianapolis is known for the legendary Hinkle Fieldhouse, site of the 1954 “Milan Miracle” that inspired the basketball film Hoosiers. Indianapolis is a beautiful and growing city with warm summers, colorful falls, and snowy winters. The city is also an increasingly diverse place, with 40,000 foreign-born individuals moving to Indianapolis since 2000—a faster pace than even Chicago. Indy is now home to growing Mexican, Chinese, Sikh, Burmese, and Nigerian communities. Domestic violence has become a major issue in Indy. You can be a blessing to many families by supplying food, providing home repairs, or giving children a safe place to be during the day. As you delight in the sights and activities, you’ll enjoy getting to know the people of this amazing community—and Week of Hope offers you an amazing opportunity to serve those who may have been forgotten or may just need a little hope.
