This Week at Mount Hope // February 10-16, 2020



Welcome to this week's edition of the LOOP. In this email, you will find everything that's happening over the next few weeks within our Mount Hope Community.
BREAKING THE CYCLE // THE BOOK OF JUDGES

Have you ever experienced being a rut? You feel like you're doing the same thing everyday, and no matter how much you try, you're just not able to break out of it. Sometimes in life we get into a cycle of wrong decisions and wrong outcomes, leading us down a dangerous downward spiral. How is it that we find ourselves in such a predicament? And once we're in, is there a way out?  Upon entering the Promised Land, the people of Israel found themselves in such a cycle. In our last sermon, we explored their story to see how we may learn from their experience. 

Join us for our sermon series "Breaking the Cycle," where we explore God's Word in the book of Judges .  If you missed Sunday's sermon, you may  listen here .

AVAILABLE RESOURCES
Our children are a gift from the Lord! As parents, we often need help along the way to raise children who glorify God and positively impact the world around them. As we come across resources and tools that we find helpful regarding parenting and/or family related topics, we like to share them with the parents in our community. 
MARRIAGE
When we get married, we all hope to have a marriage that thrives and is full of joy. But as we experience life, we realize that this takes hard work and we often help from those who've "been there." Whether you're just starting out, have been married for a while and need some encouragement, or doing well in your marriage, this ministry is for you!
