28 Dec This week at Hope 12/28/2020
Yesterday in worship we wrestled with the question “Do you see what I see?” John, who along with the other disciples got to see Jesus glory firsthand. A front row seat to the best teachings and miracles ever heard and seen. It is easy to believe things you can see, but it becomes more difficult to believe things you can’t see. Can we see amazing works of God today? What occupies us and assures us, along with John in his time, to keep faithful and looking for and receiving Gods blessings. Do we still believe and wait for God through what He is still doing in our lives and world today?
The week of New Years has descended upon us. Here is the worship schedule at Hope:

Now is a good time to be generous with year-end offerings. The church needs your contributions in order to fulfill budget obligations and to continue in the Lord’s work.
