Love God.
Love people.
Make disciples of Christ.
Quick note from Pastor Ben:

Fall is here and with that comes busy schedules for many of us. I don’t know about the rest of you, but for the Sollie household, these days are packed full of school activities, sports, and church programs. It’s a time of year that we all enjoy, yet it can also bring added stress. 

On Sunday we will be looking at a passage of Scripture in which Jesus asks his followers a very intriguing question. I believe he wants to ask us the same question. It’s a question that can breathe hope and encouragement in the middle of all that is going on around us. I pray that as we look at Matthew 20:29-34 we will understand in a new way what happens when we encounter Jesus. 

Be sure to see important information below about upcoming events. Also families please join us this Friday at 7pm for our outdoor movie night! 


See you Sunday!

-Pastor Ben Sollie


Below is information for the coming weekend:

SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICE TIMES
We offer two Sunday Worship services. The times will be as follows:

As a reminder, temporarily bulletins will not be handed out on Sunday mornings. A "mini-bulletin" has been created: See September 13th's Mini-Bulletin.

We ask that everyone who attends our services play their part in practicing safe social distancing. You can find a full list of our safety guidelines here (COVID19 | SAFETY GUIDELINES).
The following may be repetitive, but in case you missed it in previous weeks...

There is a mandatory "wear a mask in public places" policy in effect in Minneapolis (Executive order 20-81). We are highly recommending that, if possible, you would please wear a mask upon entering and exiting the sanctuary. We are also asking that you wear the mask whenever social distancing (6 ft apart) is not possible. We know this might seem inconvenient, but I believe that this is an opportunity to place the needs of others (potentially at risk congregation members) as more important than ourselves (Philippians 2:3-4).

For the health and safety of all who choose to worship at Hope Church, we ask that if you have any COVID-19 symptoms that you stay at home until you are no longer symptomatic. We also ask that if you have been in close proximity to someone who tests positive for COVID-19, that you take the necessary precautions and refrain from participating in Hope Church activities and our Worship services until you are certain you are not at risk of spreading the virus.

We will have masks available for those who do not have them. We are asking that you would honor the CDC's recommendation of social distancing, but also understanding families will sit next to one another. If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call us.
YOUNG ADULTS RETREAT!

Pastor Brian will be teaching at a Young Adults retreat next weekend, September 25-27 at the Association Retreat Center (ARC) in Osceola, WI. The deadline to register is Sunday, September 20th. Don't miss out, Sign up today!
