Happy Thanksgiving

Let the whole earth shout triumphantly to the Lord! Serve the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Acknowledge that the Lord is God. He made us, and we are his— his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and bless his name. For the Lord is good, and his faithful love endures forever; his faithfulness, through all generations.” Psalm 100

Today, we thank God for YOU – for your life, your talents, and the joy you bring to Hope Church. We also want to say, ‘Thank You’ TO you! Thank you for giving your time and talents to serve our community of hope!

A Little More Hope…

This past Sunday, we concluded a powerful journey through the New Testament book of Ephesians. In it, we discovered God’s loyal love for us, our authority and position with Christ, the power to resist sub-abundant living, and the call to live differently from the world. If you missed any of this life-changing series, be sure to catch up on our YouTube channel under the Ephesians playlist.
