Genesis: A Binge-Worthy Bible Series
"Mad Men"
Good morning, Hope!
Record amounts of food poured into our church building last weekend for the Souper Bowl Food Drive! Thanks for your generosity, and thanks to the large, hard-working and joy-filled crew of church volunteers who sorted and delivered it to 93 food pantries in central Iowa this past week. WOW!
Speaking of WOW, worship this weekend is the can't-miss season finale for our Binge-Worthy Bible Series! We - Jeremy, Richard & myself - will preach on Genesis 37:3-11, a classic and colorful story of Mad Men, gifts, dreams, pride and envy ... yep, serious connections to modern life! I'm excited about the Word God has given us to share! Make time for worship! It's good for you and we're better when you're here!
Finally, a tip of the hat and three cheers for our parking lot & snow-plow teams - my heroes! When winter weather hits, our church lot gets cleared immediately. And at our biggest services, our volunteer parking team and Hope-mobile drivers are there - every weekend - to serve you, making it safe and easy for you to get in and out of worship regardless of the weather.
