Good Friday and Easter Online
Our Good Friday service will be available at at 7:00 PM Friday. Just as in past years, this will be a solemn time to reflect on the sacrifice Christ made for us. The only difference is, this year it will be online. We will be taking communion as part of the service—click here for details on that. (Please be aware that the Good Friday Service will include a video clip with a realistic depiction of crucifixion which may not be appropriate for young children or sensitive viewers.) Because of the Good Friday service this week, we will not have Hope Midweek Live on Wednesday. It will resume next week.

Celebrate Easter with Hope Church on Sunday, April 12. Instead of our normal, in-person services, we'll be making our Easter Sunday service available online. Find it at beginning at 9:00 AM Sunday.
How Is Hope Helping?
Joshua's Place: Thank you to everyone who took the time to support Joshua's Place last week! Our Restore team purchased $1,000 worth of additional supplies to donate for meal kits. Joshua's Place is serving 1,200 students each week with the student meal kits they're putting together. They've also distributed more than 750, $20 restaurant gift cards to families in need. This is on top of the normal food services they provide.

Hope House Mission: The Restore team has designated $700 for Hope House. With volunteers from our congregation, we were able to serve dinner at HHM's shelters last Wednesday and plan to do so every Wednesday throughout the month.

City Gospel Mission: As we mentioned last week, CGM was searching for a hotel to house some of their more vulnerable drop-in shelter men during the COVID-19 pandemic. On April 1, 37 men were relocated to the Clarion Hotel in Sharonville. Hope has donated books, cards, games, etc., to help keep the men occupied. We are standing by to assist further.
Continue Loving Your Neighbor
When neighbors ask you how you’re handling these uncertain times, take a risk and share a challenge or two that you or your loved ones are facing. This helps build trust and paves the way for you to ask about their struggles and challenges in an organic way.
Journey: Following Jesus to the Cross
Journey is an interactive experience that allows one to reflect and focus their heart and mind on the death and resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Journey starts at creation and continues through Jesus’ final week. There is a complementary adaptation for young children to help them experience Journey. Since Journey is taking place in your home, everyone can engage at their own time and pace through Holy Week.
How Are Others Dealing With This Situation?
Each week we're sharing a video message from a Hope Church leader about how they are handling the coronavirus situation. This week—a message from Bill Craig.
Zoom Security
You may have heard in the news that some people are questioning the security of Zoom video conferencing. We are aware of this and are addressing ways in which we might be vulnerable. We still recommend Zoom as a video conferencing tool.
If you're feeling isolated and want to be more connected, give us a call at 513.459.0800. Stay safe out there, Hope Church. Your Hope Church leadership is praying for you daily.
