Community Athletic Association caasports.org

In 2005, Community Hope secured a license from Amtrak to develop an 8-acre parcel of land for athletic fields adjacent to the building at 750 Otts Chapel Road. Over the next two years, a partnership was developed between Community Hope and Community Athletic Association to develop fields for CAA soccer and baseball league practice and play.

Soccer fields were completed in the fall of 2007, and the baseball field was completed in the fall of 2008 with the help of a grant from Dow Electronic Materials.

A compacted stone 6/10th mile walking trail has also been completed around the perimeter of the athletic fields, and a new playground has been erected serving the needs of both Community Hope and Community Athletic Association.

Stephen Ministries

The Stephen Series is a complete system for training and organizing lay people to provide one-to-one care to hurting people in and around church congregations. It provides a congregation with the structure, training and resources to set up and administer a complete system for a lay caring ministry (called a Stephen Ministry) in the congregation. In a congregation, trained Stephen Ministers in a congregation provide one-to-one Christian care to the bereaved, hospitalized, terminally ill, separated, divorced, unemployed, relocated and others facing a crisis or life challenge.

Community Hope has funded the training of seven Stephen Leaders and more than 50 Stephen Ministers in the Newark area since the spring of 2008.
