Love God.
Love people.
Make disciples of Christ.
Dear Congregation,
I pray that that all of you are well and blessed by the Lord! It was so great to see many of you this past Sunday! I am truly grateful for the Lord’s provision and being able to worship in person again! I do know that many of you are still choosing to practice social distancing, and we support you and are praying for you!

Worship Services and Memorial Service this Sunday, June 21
This weekend we begin to wrap up our series on the book of Hebrews. We will be looking at Hebrews 12:18-29 and how Christ’s eternal kingdom cannot be shaken. The scripture readings are, Jeremiah 31:31-34 and Matthew 16:13-18.

REMINDER that we will only have an 8am Traditional Worship Service and 10:30am Contemporary Worship Service. 
At 9:15 am there will be a memorial service for Bob Barthel, who passed away in April. 
We will also continue our online worship services indefinitely for those who prefer to worship from Home. 

Temporarily, bulletins will not be handed out on Sunday mornings. A "mini-bulletin" has been created: SEE MINI BULLETIN You can also access this bulletin on our website, see link below.

Table Talk is taking a break
For the summer we will be taking a break from Table Talk, our Wednesday evening devotional which is posted on our YouTube channel. We will be revisiting the possibility of continuing this in September. 
Worship Service Safety Guidelines
As a reminder, on June 14th, we resumed our worship services. We are limiting the attendance for each service to 50% capacity, (capacity is 350), roughly 175 people per service. We have developed a cleaning strategy which will stay in place. We have the proper signage needed as well as making sure we have the recommended number of hand sanitizer strategically placed throughout the building. We ask that everyone who attends play their part in practicing safe social distancing. 

For a full list of our safety guidelines go here: SAFETY GUIDELINES
We look forward to all that God has in store for us this weekend at Hope! 
Blessings in Christ | Pastor Brian Ricke

We would love for you all to join us for a four week Bible Study for any families with kids and youth!
We will begin our study on July 8th and continue Wednesday evenings in July from 6:30-8:00pm. We believe this will be a great time to reconnect with each other, while we spend time digging deeper in our faith.

***Please keep in mind that parents and guardians with children under the age of 12 are required to stay throughout the evening, you will also be responsible for helping lead your family in the Bible study, and participating in the fun activities we have planned for those Wednesday nights.***

Lastly, please use the survey monkey below to let us know whether or not your family will be attending/ are interested in our Bible Study this summer:
