Our teachers are excited to begin a new year of Sunday School with a brand new curriculum. Classes for children (age 3 through high school) and adults will start on September 13, 2015 at 9 AM. Parents must register each child every year. Registration forms will be available in fellowship hall beginning on Sunday, September 6. We hope you’ll join us!
Adult Class– Our adult class also meets at 9 AM on Sunday morning. You can find us in the Collis Room (just past the pastor’s office). We will be studying Jesus’ “wisdom parables” in the Gospels. Although this is a continuation of last year’s study of the wisdom literature of the Old Testament, Jesus brings a new perspective to the wisdom of life–both in his day and all succeeding days, including ours. The format is listening to an expert in DVD format followed by discussion. Come and learn and discuss the relevance of Jesus’ teachings for today!
WE STILL HAVE SOME SPACES AVAILABLE!! PASS THE WORD AND REGISTER WITHOUT DELAY!!

Thank you to everyone who took a tag from the Giving and Mitten tree! We did great! 28 out of 30 tags have gone home with someone. Two boys are left if you would like to participate. Mittens, gloves, hats and scarves can be brought in anytime through the end of the month. Place them on the tree or in the basket underneath. Gifts are due on December 14th (unwrapped please).
This week’s service included a wonderful message on Gratitude, the choir sang “Sing a New Song” and there was a baptism! A busy Sunday at Hope!
We have felt so blessed recently to hear our new Children’s Choir at two of our services. The girls have been working hard to learn their songs under the direction of Mary Ellen Bracey and did an awesome job both weeks. Their first appearance, when they sang A Lenten Love Song, featured Natalie Martinez singing a solo verse in Spanish. Their Easter selection included solo verses from Paige Nally and Tabitha Genholt, two very talented young ladies. We are so looking forward to hearing what beautiful music they have in store for us on the week of our Sunday School Celebration!
Saturday, January 11, 2014 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
(Lunch will be provided.)
Let us initiate the New Year with excitement and great expectations. Mark your calendar to participate in a community gathering where we will be honoring the past, celebrating the present, and claiming a vibrant future. Everyone is needed to share, love and plan for the spiritual and numeric growth of Hope. Come; let us collaborate with the Holy Spirit and each other in the creation of our future!
Grace and Peace,
Leadership Team & Pastor Aida
