Dear Church Family,

Due to the very unexpected passing of Carol Scheer, we will only have one service this weekend. Pastor Dave will preside at 9:30 on Sunday.

There will be no Saturday evening service this weekend. I think it will be nice to have us all together at this time. Hope to see everyone there. - Rosemary

 Mesa Hydration Donation Campaign

Donate bottled water to help the homeless and unsheltered during the summer

June 1 - September 30

You can drop cases off here at church. Cash donations are also accepted.

Beginning in September we will be engaging in a special stewardship program called Sparked By The Spirit which looks at the different ways we can give of ourselves for the ministry of Christ’s church. YOU are the church and each one of us has a special role to carry out in our ministries. This program is a challenge for you to see how you might be able to make even a BIGGER difference for Spirit of Hope.
