What is hope? Is it a wish that things will get better or could it be something more? I once heard hope described as a lit match in a dark tunnel that gives off just enough light for you to take the next step forward. But what if hope is even more than that...what if hope is embodied in a person? What if hope has a name and his name is Jesus? In this new series we will be exploring what it is to be filled with hope in each moment of our lives. We will explore what kills hope, what grows it, how do we share it and live in the hope that is Jesus Christ.

*Women's Study Group - Wednesday Mornings
James Moore has provided a fresh look at how we can serve God and our neighbor in his book "God Was Here and I Was Out to Lunch." Often, we're too preoccupied to notice the needs of those around us and to sense God's ever present grace. Reverend Moore offers easy steps to improve our ability to change our lives from "Me Centered" to "Other Centered."
Please join us for this six-week study at 9:30 a.m. in the parlor. If you have any questions, please contact Mary Lou Hanna at 627-4360 or Sue VanKampen at 627-2360.
*Time of Prayer
We have been created for intimate conversation with God. Come for a time of quiet reflection and prayer with our heavenly Father.
Time: 1:30 - 2:00 p.m.
Where: Church Chapel
"Be joyful always; pray continually." 1 Thessalonians 16-17
Sing for Joy, Share Your Musical Gifts
The church music team is gearing up for another season of leading worship through music. We need additional members to join us in this pursuit for both the Chancel Choir and Bell Choir.

The Bell Choir Rehearses from 7:30-8:30 p.m.
