  • Wow! what a great response to our Work Day this past Saturday. It was wonderful that we were able to get the East Property line landscaping, weed barrier and rocks done. I want to thank everyone that helped to make this happen. The great news is that this week we were able to finish the last five sections of the fence and landscaping. We are now ready to get this maintenance bond cleared once the county buys off. Thank you so much for making a huge difference.
  • Looking ahead, be sure to put September 12 on your calendar. We will be celebrating 20 years of the Lord’s faithfulness to our church. We are busy working through plans for this special day. Be sure to put it on your calendar as we launch the 2021-2022 year of ministry as well!
  • I am excited to have Pastor Mark Suko, Pastor Emeritus, Discovery Baptist Church, Gig Harbor with us this weekend. Pastor Mark has been a blessing and influence in my life and ministry. He and his church have also been instrumental in Living Hope as well. It is good to have him with us Sunday August 8 for both AM services.
  • We are looking for an individual to update our “Prayer List” spreadsheet that we distribute each week. We are in need of someone to verify and update our government officials on the list. If you could help us with this please reach out to Nina or Pastor Joe.   
  • Several people have expressed interest in a Couples Bible Study. The plan is to start in late September. Please let Pastor Joe know if you are interested.
  • We have two Men’s groups that are meeting. Pastor Berney leads a Thursday Evening group 7:00 pm at the church studying the Minor Prophets. Pastor Joe’s Thursday Men’s Group meets at 10AM Thursday mornings in the Admin Building.
  • Pastor Zac has some great Six8 Youth Ministry events happening this summer. The Jr & Sr Groups are meeting together for weekly Saturday events. Please check the bulletin for the summer schedule or contact Pastor Zac.
  • Our August Monthly Memory Verse will be 2 Corinthians 9:6. Paul reminds us that our investment for Jesus will produce a harvest. “The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” 2 Corinthians 9:6 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)
  • This week Pastor Berney will be bring a challenge from the next section in 2 Corinthians. The challenge is, as Paul puts it, to put our faith into action, “Working together with him, then, we appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain.” (2 Corinthians 6:1) It is exciting to see the Lord’s working in our congregation. I do appreciate your prayers each week for our time in the Word. Thank you for Praying.
