Which Way to the Promised Land?
"A Meal to Remember"

Good morning, Hope!
Here's the deal: God wants to have supper with you this weekend at Hope. Will you show up?

"Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see - how good God is.
Blessed are you who run to him."
Psalm 34:8 The Message
PS- I'm preaching on Exodus 12 this  Saturday night (5:00 pm) and Sunday morning (8:00, 8:30, 9:15 & 11:00 am) . Jeremy will do the same  Sunday night (5:00 pm) . Holy Communion will be offered at all services this weekend. As a church, we encourage you to bring your kids (of any age) to worship, instilling in their hearts the good spiritual discipline of intergenerational weekly worship. They'll thank you someday, and potentially forever. In addition, at a second weekly session, we encourage you (as volunteers) and your children (as students) to participate in our extraordinary weekly children's ministry called HopeKids (age 3 - grade 5) on Saturdays at 5:00 pm, Sundays at 9:15, 11:00 am, 5:00 pm, or Wednesdays (grades 1-5) at 6:00 pm. Hope also offer
two outstanding student ministries on Wednesday nights: PowerLife Confirmation  (grades 6-8) and Ignition (grades 9-12). Finally,  quality professional childcare for infants and toddlers (age 3 & under) is available at all of our services each week.
"Point your kids in the right direction - when they're old they won't be lost."
Proverbs 22:6 The Message
