Sunday, January 25th, 2015 Service

The Hope Choir sings “Here I am Lord” and Rev. Aida tells us a not-so-fishy tale about Jonah’s call from God.  Along the way we discover that sometimes it’s hard to answer that call and head ourselves in the right direction!


Sunday Service – January 18, 2015 – “Call Waiting”

Annual Spaghetti Dinner and Talent Show

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!
