Hannah's Hope invites churches, Sunday School classes and UMW Circles to join its 'Circle of Hope'


By Rev. Trina Morrison, Executive Director, Hannah's Hope

Hannah’s Hope is an extension ministry of the Memphis Conference of The United Methodist Church, serving new mothers and families seeking adoption.

Scared, expectant mothers come to us when they feel that they have no other place to turn, and we are blessed to be able to welcome them with open arms and support them through counseling, rides to medical appointments, groceries, maternity clothes and other unmet needs. We also prepare a dozen families annually to receive their new child through home studies and family counseling.

We couldn’t do the ministry we do without generous contributions from faith groups throughout the Memphis Conference.

Our adoption fees are on a sliding scale based on a family’s ability to pay.This means that adoption fees and conference support do not fully fund the work of Hannah’s Hope. We need your help, and are asking you join our Circle of Hope program.

The Circle of Hope is a tiered giving society that provides a tangible way to support the mission of Hannah’s Hope. United Methodist Women circles, churches, Sunday School classes and more are invited to participate annually by committing to a Circle of Hope level.

Not only do we need your financial support, but also your prayers.

We have created Hannah’s Hope devotion and prayer cards that are included in the participation packet, and we ask that your group take a moment out of your meeting time for four weeks to gather in prayer for the ministry of Hannah’s Hope.

Now through March 6, we are asking groups to make donations or turn in pledge cards for a commitment this year to help us reach our $7,500 goal.

Groups may participate at the Platinum ($1,000+), Gold ($500), Silver ($250) or Member ($100) levels.

Participants will be recognized through level-specific participation certificates and recognition on the Hannah’s Hope website and Facebook page.
