  • We experienced another reminder of God’s blessing. Some of you know that we have been working on adding a “man door” to the Ministry Center storage unit to make it more accessible. We were having a difficult time sourcing the security door and frame needed. It just so happens that the Lord provided the exact door and frame we needed (normally $1000) for not cost! (We actually were given several doors that will allow us to secure and update the remaining storage boxes!)
  • We had a great group for the 101 Discovering Church Membership Class this past Saturday. Let me encourage you to expand your people contacts this Sunday to get to know some of those that are joining us each week.
  • AWANA 5:30pm- 7:30pm for students in the K – 6th Grades. Someone recently mentioned to me how our new facility has enabled our program to go to the next level! This is great way to introduce new families to Living Hope. Contact Pastor Berney for specifics.
  • Adult Bible Study is meeting on Tuesday evenings at 7pm at the Admin Building.  The study is a sermon based discussion lead by Thom B.. If you are interested in going deeper in the Word, why not check it out?:.
  • Prayer Meeting is Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm in the Admin Building. We are seeing prayer make a difference as we  are committed to marching forward on our knees!
  • Men’s Bible Studies, both AM and PM meet on Thursday at 10am and 7pm respectively. Pastor Joe’s 10am group is a sermon based study and Pastor Berney’s 7pm group is studying Ephesians. It is exciting to see our men growing in their relationship with the Lord!
  • Six-8 I want to thank everyone for their interest and participation in the parent meeting this past week. Things are being worked through as we work to confirm a starting date, meeting date and time. Please contact Pastor Berney with any questions and for more information.
  • Thanksgiving –Soup, Bread and Pie Potluck Sunday November 21st following 2nd AM Service. It is a great time to fellowship, connect and celebrate the Lord’s blessing upon us this past year. We are asking each family to bring soup, bread and a pie to be shared for the event.
  • Congregational Business Meeting, Sunday November 21 following the church potluck. The business meeting will be a quick update on the ministry and church finances. We will also be voting on a retro-active church budget for the 2021-2022 ministry year.
  • Our Monthly Memory Verse(s) for October are a reminder to “Look to the Lord” (our new sermon series.) “I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1–2 ESV  I strongly encourage you to develop a system for memorizing Scripture. It could be using 3×5 cards or even an app. Let me encourage you to check out the Bible Memory App. (IOS and Android)
  • It has been great to have Pastors Barry and Berney take portions of our “Looking to God!” sermon series. This week I will be bringing the last installment as we focus on the third emphasis on God’s character, Love! I am excited about digging deeper into our understanding of our Lord and his commitment to each of us. I do appreciate your prayers as we continue to press forward for the Lord! Thank You.
