  • Preparing Our Hearts for Easter

    Just as the Advent season prepares us for Christmas, the Lenten season can do the same for Easter. Please join us in a church-wide time of fasting, praying, reflection, repentance, and forgiveness. This time of Lent is meant for us to reflect deeply upon our own sinfulness, while at the same time contemplating the extraordinary sacrifice Jesus Christ made on our behalf. The ultimate purpose of Lent is to point us to the Hope of Christ’s Resurrection and the Day He will bring His Bride home! EVERYONE can participate in meaningful ways throughout the Lenten season. May we all look forward to experiencing God’s transforming grace! Participation packets are available in the foyer. 

    ”’Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.’ Return to the Lord your God, for He is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love...” Joel 2:12-13

  • Harvest Project

    The most important issue we should be talking about is the Gospel! Thousands of people all around us do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ, and as Christians, this should burden us to the core. "Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority as apostles to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so they will believe and obey Him, bringing glory to His name." (Romans 1:5 NLT) So we want to obey God and get out into our community with His Gospel message.  In small teams, we are going door to door to invite people into a spiritual discussion. The area surrounding Hope is God's field, and we are His harvesters. Come be a part of this awesome privilege to see what God is growing! Talk to Pastor Kevin for more details.  

  • Pray 4 Every Home

    There are so many people in our community that have no one praying for them! Let's make a difference in this area and commit to praying for our neighbors by name on a regular basis, even if you don't know them personally. An online site, Pray4EveryHome.com, will send to your email a list of names and addresses to pray for each week.  Let's saturate our communities with prayer!  2 Chronicles 7:14, "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
