This Weekend at Hope:
 Countdown to Christmas | Coming Soon! | Isaiah 7:13-14   
Good Morning Hope,
This weekend, we bring out the Advent wreath, and begin preparing our hearts and minds for the King of Kings to enter into our world. To help prepare our hearts and spread this tremendous joy and good news, we have some wonderful services planned for the month of December.
Working backwards:

 More "Holy Day" Festivities at Hope...

This weekend, we gather for our new sermon series " Countdown to Christmas," with communion, and our special invitation to bring your gifts and pledges forward during our offering time. If you are new to Hope Waukee, I updated everyone on our Hope Grows Here Campaign and General Fund a few weeks ago. I asked those new to the campus to pray and consider making a one-time gift or pledge for the coming new year to our capital or general funds. For those who were out of town or misplaced their pledge cards, we'll have those available before services this weekend.
We'll see you this weekend!
