An E-News Message From Pastor John

Hey everybody!

This weekend is Part 7 of "Anchor"! I'm not sure about you guys, but I have really enjoyed this series! I hope you're thinking a little differently about your relationship with the Holy Spirit. Let him guide your life - it will produce much better fruit than with you leading it... :-)

Yesterday I was in a meeting with quite a few of our staff members getting ready for a new series starting in two weeks called "Campus Life". The more I think and pray about this series, the more excited I get! I love thinking about, praying for and teaching about our church. Occasionally, I reflect on all that God has done in the last 14 and a half years of Hope's existence. It's so humbling to be a part of such a great community of believers. We all come from different walks of life; different denominations, cultures and even religions. Somehow, we've been able to walk in such love and unity all these years. I believe we've tried hard to answer the prayer of Jesus that we would all be one (even though we're three churches...)! :-) I love you all so much. Thanks for being so easy to pastor!

Here are some things to remember:

New to Hope (August 2 & 3) - If you are New to Hope, be sure to attend the next New to Hope meal on your campus. We want to get to know you, and also help you get to know us a little better. Childcare is provided. You can CLICK HERE to sign up for your campus.

Day of Prayer (August 18) - Join us as we pray for our community: our schools, neighbors, family and our personal relationship with Christ. You'll be guided, challenged and encouraged as you walk through interactive prayer stations. The doors will be open from 6:00 AM - 9:00 PM. Come for a few moments or stay as long as you like!

I love you all!
