  •      The great news is, by the time you read this, we will have power on the property and at the Office. I am thankful for each of the contractors coming together to make this happen. It was quite the process. They pulled power down the property line, installed the high voltage transformer and wired it up and installed the pole  at the front of the property. Later tonight (9pm Thursday) they will tie in across Sedgwick Rd. I also want to give a shout out to Brad owner of Caseco for helping with a last minute fix for PSE and being available to backfill.
  •       I just heard today that Kitsap County has moved to a level two quarantine. This is encouraging, especially as it relates to Soccer Camp. The desire would be to be a level three by camp week July 20-24. We are planning on having camp if we can! We have put in place several contingencies to address anticipated barriers for this year. We will be promoting the camp digitally this year (there will not be a physical mailer). Registration is currently being delayed.  There may also be group size limitations. We have all the major pieces in place and trust that Washington will hit the opening phasing targets. Thanks for praying.
  •      I have really enjoyed our Wednesday Evening Bible Study 7pm on ZOOM (Zoom Link) I have been very happy with the way that it is going. Yes, it would be better if we met in person, but the video chat format is working very well. If you are interested in digging a little deeper into the Sunday message, I encourage you to join us.
  •      We continue to refine our Sunday Livestream on Facebook Live and Youtube. We will be Streaming again this  Sunday at 10 AM  to both Facebook and YouTube. (Clink Links). We will be continuing to work through our passage in Galatians. I would encourage you to invite others.
  •     Let me remind you to join OnRealm our private online church communication platform. Invitation is by request by sending an email and phone number to or contact Pastor Joe.
  •      I want to thank those that have been supporting the ministry financially. Our general fund has fallen a bit behind. If you are able to help, it would be appreciated. You can send donations via mail, bill pay or Living Hope Online Giving(Clink Link). The church address for mail options is: Living Hope Church, P.O. Box 908, Port Orchard, WA 98366. Please contact Nathan F or Pastor Joe with any questions.
  •      For May our memory verse is from Galatians 6:10. ““So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians 6:10 ESV If you struggle with memorizing or even consistency, let me encourage you to check out the Bible Memory App. (IOS and Android)
  •      This week we will be entering the final section of Galatians.  We will spend several weeks moving through these last verses where Paul shares his heart. We appreciate your prayers for Pastor Berney and myself as we prepare for our time in God’s Word this Sunday. Thanks for Praying.
