The church-wide program kicks off Sunday, September 19!

1 Peter 1:3 reminds us, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” In and through Jesus Christ we are given a living hope for this life and the next. We can be assured that the Lord, in His goodness, wants the absolute best for us. We, as a church family, want that living hope for each person.


On Sunday, September 19, we will kick off a church-wide program call “Hope is Here!” For a month we will focus together on the hope that has been given to us in Jesus Christ. Sermons, adult and small group studies, and Sunday School will all focus on this hope. On September 19 we are planning a powerful worship service, a meal together, and family games. You will want to get this on your calendar now and start praying about who you will invite. Of course, pulling this off will require a concentrated effort by all of us. There will opportunities to volunteer, but the first thing I want to call us to is prayer. Let us know if you are willing to be part of the prayer team for this event. It is simply a commitment to pray daily for the Spirit of God’s work in and through this event. 
Opportunities to be a part of a team; keep in mind this is a short-term commitment.  If you’d like more information or would like to be a team member, please call the office.
