The Missions Team thanks everyone who came out on a snowy Valentine’s evening for an evening of delicious spaghetti and exciting talent.  Here are a few pictures from the event:

 

Our 13th annual Spaghetti Dinner and Talent Show is quickly approaching!  It will be held on Saturday, February 14th at 5:00 PM.  This event is a time to support our wonderful sister church relationship with Alpha y Omega in Tipitapa, Nicaragua.  Invite your sweetheart or gather a group of friends and come out for a delicious meal and some great entertainment!  We promise that there will be some great music, funny stories and who knows what else to keep you smiling!
For anyone who would like to offer an act for the talent show or make a dinner reservation, you can see Marci Eggen at church beginning January 19th or call the church office for information about how to reach her (323-7584).  Tickets for the dinner are $7 each and $4 for children 12 and under.  If you are interested in lending a hand with meal preparation, serving or clean up, please see Lucy Klein.

We are so blessed to have this sister church connection between Hope UMC and Alpha y Omega and they are so appreciative of our annual aid.  So, let’s make this a fun time together and another successful event!

Sunday Service – February 8, Rev. Jack Moss

Today’s service was about Mark 9:2 – 13, known as the Transfiguration liturgy.

 After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus.

Alice Collins gives the children a little lesson on it with her “WOW” card and Rev. Moss talks to us about this mystical passage and its meanings in today’s world.
