INDIANAPOLIS — Dozens of Indianapolis churches are working together to help spread hope during the COIVD-19 pandemic.

Pastor Steve Poe says people are searching for encouragement right now and the churches hope to help them find it.

"There's power in numbers. We already see physically 3,000 people that come to St. Luke's every Sunday and with this pandemic, we've seen double that amount tuning into online services. On Easter, we had over 10,000 people," Nicole Cladwell-Gross said.

Like Poe, Caldwell-Gross is hoping to the positive messages will lift even more spirits.

The Hope for Indy campaign was created by the Fish Hook, a team committed to being an extension to ministries.

All churches will be able to share messages to help people spiritually.

"This has created more collaborating," Caldwell-Gross said. "Typically we would not hear of 30 churches all doing something together like this and I think this pandemic has taught us denominational lines, other differences, it doesn't matter. What matters is bringing the whole of Jesus Christ to people."
