  • 2019 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

    Every December since 1888, the Lottle Moon Christmas Offering has empowered Southern Baptist's international missions work. Generous giving to the 2019 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering makes a difference among the multitudes. Men, women, children, and entire communities are transformed as a result of this offering. Your gifts enable thousands of missionaries to live among, serve, and share the gospel with people who have never heard it until now.

    In Lottie's own words she says, "Is not the festive seaon when families and friends exchange gifts in memory of The Gift laid on the alter of the world for the redemption of the human race, the most appropriate time to consecrate a portion from abounding riches and scant poverty to send forth the good tidings of great joy into all the earth?" Please consider donating this season to keep our missionaries in the field. Make checks payable to Hope Baptist Church with the designation "Lottie Moon."

  • LEAP OF FAITH Dance Ministry - Children's Ballet (Nov 6 - Dec 11)

    Sage Huber, assisted by Olivia Frankin, will resume the Leap of Faith dance ministry beginning November 6 through December 11. The session will run for six weekes, on Wednesdays, 6:00-6:45pm in the Fellowship Fall. There will be a small performance at the end of class on December 11 and during Worship on December 15. Sage will be teaching ballet, and lessons will be geared for kindergarten and first grade students, but slightly younger or older girls are certainly welcome. Students should wear traditional bellet leotards and ballet shoes. We have had families donate some leotards for this ministry. As Sage and Olivia invest in these young people as a ministry, there is no set cost. Families are asked to donate what they can to Hope's Youth Group, where 100% of doantions will be toward helping our students attend the ReBoot winter retreat in January. To sign up or check on leotard avaailability, please see Meagan Rucker, who has graciously agreed to manage the dance roster and leotard distribution.

  • 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!!

  • FREE Leaf Raking Service

    It is fall and Cub Scout Pack 62 is looking to do some leaf raking! If you would be interested in this free service, please fee free to contact their pack leaders Jimmy and Jen.

  • Young at Heart

    Mark your calendars for future activities: a November 20th Thanksgiving meal, a December 18th Christmas celebration, and a January 15th group birthday party. Other suggestions are welcomed for all gatherings. Contact Viola for more information.
