Hello Hope Des Moines!
Happy New Year! Every year around this time there’s so much
excitement, energy, anticipation about what the new year will bring
. Maybe this is the year I’ll finally_________. Maybe this is the year I’ll finally quit ___________. Or, maybe you simply long to put the past in the past and a new year is a sigh of relief.
Whatever the 2019 means for you,
God makes an incredible promise to us about fresh starts
in Revelation 21:5:
He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”
God is in the business of making fresh starts and new beginnings in our lives!
So, I want to challenge us as a church and you individually —
what new thing is God up to in your life these days? Are you open to it?
What is he calling you to start? Where is he calling you to take a step of faith? How is he calling you to be more like Jesus?
The good news is, we’ve got plenty of ways for you to connect and get off to a fresh start with Jesus in 2019!
This weekend! (Worship Saturday at 5:00 pm or Sunday at 9:15 or 11:00 am).
What would it look like to make weekly worship a priority for you and your family this year? Join us this weekend!
- We’ll kick off our annual theme of “12 Books in 12 Months” as we remind ourselves of the power of God’s word to change our lives this year.
- We start a new sermon series based on the book of Acts!
- We’ll celebrate Holy Communion and experience God’s grace.
- We’ll have a New Member Class right here at Hope Des Moines at 12:30 pm beginning with lunch! Come and learn more about Hope!
Sunday, Jan. 27 - CORE Class kicks off!
(5:00 pm in the Worship Center). This is a great opportunity to grow in your faith, learn more about the Bible, and meet others. Includes a meal, teaching, worship, and small group discussion.
Something new is happening at Hope Des Moines! Come and see! See you this weekend!
P.S. One of the many ways we give back and worship God is through our tithes and offerings. After a powerful, God-filled giving campaign back in November, many of you discovered the freedom that comes with
guilt-free, pressure-free, biblical giving
. Thank you for being an incredibly generous church! This is a friendly reminder to
sign in or create an account on
to set up your reoccurring campaign gifts as well as your regular tithe.
If you have any questions about giving or online payments, don’t hesitate to contact our Finance Coordinator Carol
. Because of you, God is changing lives in Des Moines! Thank you!
