  • The Feast of Tabernacles

    From October 13th through October 20th, we will be celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles (see Leviticus 23:33-44 & Zechariah 14:16-19). This is a joyous celebration during which we praise God for always providing us with the things we need. We especially praise Him that He provided a way for us to have eternal life in Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. Each day of this celebration, Pastor Kevin will be sending out Scripture readings, prayers, and opportunities for each of us to praise God and reflect on His goodness. As a way to model God's generosity, we will also be collecting canned food items in the foyer. Make sure you are on Hope's Facebook page and Hope's google group emails to celebrate this wonderful feast together.

  • The Truth Project Study this Fall

    Recent research has revealed only 9 percent of professing Christians have a biblical worldview. Unfortunately, today's believers live very similarly to non-believers. A sense of significance is rarely experienced by most Christians and many wonder what life's ultimate purpose really is. To counter this sentiment within the body of Christ, Focus on the Family launched The Truth Project. The study is comprised of 13 one-hour lessons taught by Dr. Del Tackett and discusses the importance of living out a Christian worldview in our dialy life. God continues to call ordinary people to make an eternal difference in the world. We invite you to be a part of this cultural change by participating in The Truth Project!

    The Henderson's have graciously offered to host the study at their home on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Fridays for the months of Septermber - December at 7:00pm. The study kicked off on Friday, September 6, but it is not too late to join.  See Kathy Henderson with questions or to sign up for the study.

  • Commanders Needed for Our Sprouting Soldiers

    We need workers for Sunday mornings during whorship for our little Sprouting Soldiers for Christ (ages 4 years - 2nd grade). During this time, our soldiers typically enjoy a Bible story, craft, and snack. We have the following dates available: Sep 22 & Sep 29. If you are interested in helping or would like more information, please see Roxanne Barron.

  • ReBOOT (Jan 10-12, 2020)

    YOUTH & PARENTS: We will be heading to Skycroft for this weekend winter retreat designed as a shortened version of the summer camp. It is especially good for first-time campers to try it out. Everyone attending will be blessed and challenged through Bible studies, worship, recreation, fellowship, and small group studies. The cost is just $95 per person, including lodging and meals. Space is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

    CONGREGATION: We welcome your participation in ReBOOT as well. First, we thank you for your prayers and support. Second, because payment for camp can sometimes be a challenge for families (especially around this time of year), we invite you to sponsor a youth to attend. A donation of any amount will help! We want every youth who desires to go and grow their faith to have the opportunity to do so! For more information, see Pastor Tim or Diana Franklin.

  • New Study this Fall!

    Beginning Wednesday, September 18th, we will be offering a wonderful study of God's attributes that belong to Him alone. We all have a tendency to ask others, and even ourselves, to be who only God can be. Therefore, we're going to "ponder and meditate on His perfections so that they become to us the most rational and realistic object of our reverence and awe" (Wilkin). The study is based on a book called None Like Him by Jen Wilkin. While the book is geared toward women readers, both men and women will gain the proper perspective of who God is through this study. All are welcome to join us on Wednesdays at 7:00pm in the large classroom. If you would like a copy of the book, it can be purchased through Amazon, CBD, and Kindle. If you need help purchasing a book or have any questions about the class, please see Ingrid Huber. Child care is available during the class time. Let's fix our eyes on Him together!!

  • Young at Heart
