This Weekend at Hope:  
HOPE4IA | HOPE for Church Volunteers & Staff | Galatians 6:2-10 
Good Afternoon Hope!
 
Let's worship God this weekend in our new building!
 
I am writing this update from my office in our new building - and it looks and feels great. Through the windows I am seeing and listening to an incredible team of volunteers, staff, and contractors rallying to get everything ready for our first weekend of worship!
 
The Holy Spirit is on the move and so are we - It's time to celebrate...
 
Rally Weekend Worship at Hope
  1. First Worship Service in the new building- 3:00 pm Saturday, Sept. 8
  2. Rally Weekend Tailgate Party - 4:00 pm following worship
  3. Sunday Worship Services - 9:15 am and 11:00 am
Parking entrances are off of Beaverbrooke Blvd. and NE Heritage Drive. Our Parking Team will be ready to guide you into a great parking spot. We will also be offering a shuttle service for overflow parking on NE Heritage Drive and Station Crossing. Keep an eye out for the parking team with the cool colored vests and they will direct you.
 
We also have a circle drive drop-off for those who wish to give front door service to family and friends before parking the car.
 
HopeKids is all set for a great experience of worship, learning, and fun. Check-in for everyone can be found on the lower level as you exit the stairs or elevator.
 
Our Nursery for infants through age 3 is looking great! It is located on the main floor just past the Worship Center. Signs and greeters will guide you on how to check in.
 
We are ready with overflow seating both in the Atrium and outside (with a tent and huge LED screen). It's awesome to be getting ready for people who God continues to call into his great love.
 
Our Production and Worship Teams have a great weekend planned for our community.
 
I just want to say...get ready! It's time to rally around God's great love.
 
And, if you are coming on Saturday, plan on sticking around for the ISU/Iowa watch party (pizza at halftime)!
 
It's time to rally!
