From Pastor Ben:
Hi Hope Family,
I hope you are taking some time to enjoy the exceptional weather we've been having these past couple of days. It’s weather like we’re having this week that makes living in Minnesota worth it. : )
During the message last Sunday, I challenged us to find one way to grow deeper in our relationship with Jesus. We looked at how our goal should not be to chase contentment, but rather to pursue Christ. Philippians 3:10 says, "I want to know Christ--yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death." My prayer for us this week has been that we would be intentional at setting aside some time to grow in our relationship with Jesus, to know Him more. Remember He is our source of salvation, joy, strength and contentment.
This week is Confirmation Sunday. We hope you join us, in-person or online, as we hear from our confirmands and take time to pray for and celebrate all God is doing in their lives. Please keep our confirmands, Max Winberg and Judah Kozicky, in prayer. Our sermon text will be 1 Timothy 4:7-12.
Have a great rest of your week!
