The congregation of Hope in Christ Church has made the Spirit-filled decision to move forward and become a healthy missional church. This week’s Missional Marker is: Global Perspective and Engagement (Acts 1:8).
- We raise the sights of our members beyond our congregation and community by developing a Biblical worldview and often pray for and reference global matters.
- We have identifiable pathways to support the cause of Christ globally.
- Our people are equipped and growing in their ability to participate in the global dimensions of our ministry.
Each week we pray for members of our church family. Suggested prayers are for their spiritual growth, opportunities to see Christ in their everyday lives, and anything else that God puts on your mind for them. This week please pray for:
-Jerry & Faye H, Mark I, Junior J, Victor J, Jay & Avis K, Marilyn K
Wonder Class: Luke 2:8-12
Marvel Class: Psalm 23:1-5b
Dive Class: Isaiah 53:2b-6a
Tass Saada, a former assassin for Yassir Afafat and persecutor of Jews and Christians will be our guest speaker next Sunday, October 15th. He will speak during the 9:30 worship service, and during the 11:00 Sunday school hour. Many are expected to attend, so we are asking our church family to bring 3 dozen cookies for us to offer to our visitors. Thank you in advance for your help!
From Matt Smith at P92: A special guest will be visiting on Sunday, October 22nd to share during the morning service, and then in a more in-depth manner during the adult Sunday school hour. He is the leader of a ministry in India of which about 200 workers (some supported by Hope in Christ Church) are a part.
Congregational Meetings: Mark your calendars for two upcoming meetings. There will be a congregational pre-budget meeting on October 18 at 7:00 pm in the worship center foyer. Please come to hear about the budget and offer feedback. There will also be a congregational meeting on November 19th after the worship service.
