Which Way to the Promised Land?
"YHWH Calling"

Good morning, Hope!
What does God want to do through you?
That's the question we started to ask during the inspiring services last weekend as we kicked off our new Which Way to the Promised Land? sermon series. It's all based on the action-packed story of Moses in the Book of Exodus.
This weekend, in an effort to help you discover what God wants to do through you for the rest of your earthly life, we'll pick up right where we left off last weekend, with this verse in Exodus 2:25:
" He looked down on the people of Israel and knew it was time to act."
It was time for God to act through Moses. And this is the perfect time for you to discover the actions God wants to take in your life, too ... burning bush optional! Come and see!

PS- If you travel on weekends, or if you have scheduled events that conflict with worship on Saturday nights or Sunday mornings ... Hope has two great "catch-up" options every weekend: Sundays at 5:00 pm (Celebration Service in the Worship Center with HopeKids at the same time) and Tuesdays at 6:30 pm (Page 2 in the Bridge). Both include messages on the same theme as the rest of the weekend, and are a great opportunity to worship the Lord with your sisters and brothers in Christ!
