Offering: Outreach Fund

Message: Walk by Faith
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:
- Herm & Ali
- Joe P
- Joshua & Esther
From CRC (Our Journey 2020) Discipleship: Pray that our congregations will speak mercy and offer hospitality to all, that together we may create a welcoming home where people of all ages, ethnicities, genders, and abilities will learn to love and help each other grow into the likeness of Christ.
From CRC (Disability Concerns) Friendship: Disability Concerns works closely with Friendship Ministries; whose mission is to help people with and without disabilities grow in faith together. Pray for God’s blessing on Friendship groups and all who are using Together Bible studies so that all God’s people can grow in faith together.
Hymn Sing: You are invited to come tonight to the Hymn Sing at 6 p.m. Bring your favorite hymn requests and an appetite for pie, which will be served following!
The Story Cards for Children: Children are invited to take a story card home with them today. The cards correspond to the chapter of The Story that we are covering each week. This Sunday, the card has an illustration of Israelites blowing trumpets on the front, and Hebrews 11:30 on the back. Look for a basket with the cards at the back of the sanctuary every Sunday.
Celebrate With Us: Doug and Po ling (Winnie) would like to invite the church family to a potluck on Sat., Feb. 24, at 5:30 p.m. at Hope ln Christ Church. The occasion is to celebrate Doug’s early retirement from Amtrak. (He also celebrates a special birthday on Feb. 27.) There will be games and songs (relating to the train) to be sung. Families should bring a hot dish and salad. A homemade carrot cake will be provided by Winnie, as well as the beverages (fruit punch, water, coffee, and tea). Tableware will also be provided. Doug and Po ling (Winnie) will also be inviting some of their friends locally, and from Vancouver, B.C.; so be sure to welcome them. No gifts are requested. Come for a fun evening of fellowship and to wish Doug a good retirement from the railroad company, and a happy birthday!
