  1. Christmas Program Dress Rehearsal– This Saturday

    Dear Parents of Hope,

    For those of you who have children aged three and up, there is a great likelihood that they will need to be at the dress rehearsal for our Christmas program this Saturday, December 5.

    According to the schedule, elementary kids will sing their first song at 9:45 and preschoolers (3’s, 4’s, 5’s, and kinders) will be singing about an hour later than that. If you have children playing on the worship team, they need to be at Hope by 8:30. Junior High kids who are readers also need to be at Hope by 8:30.

    If you have both elementary and preschool children, you can bring your older kids and leave them in the care of Anne Tibbetts and then come back for the preschool rehearsal section. Also, you may want to have your child bring a book to read or a pad to draw on while they wait for their turn to rehearse.

    The program is on Sunday at 6pm. Please plan on arriving at Hope no later than 5:30. Preschoolers can be brought to the sanctuary and elementary kids can go up to the den to warm up their voices with Anne Tibbetts.

    What to wear: Long pants or skirts, dark colors or Christmas colors or just a nice outfit. Whatever you already own is great!

    You can ask Nance more questions on Saturday at the rehearsal. Thank you so much for working with us to make great memories!

  4. Sunday Baptism Helps

    We will be baptizing about a dozen people in a large trough on the front lawn of Hope Chapel.

    It will be hot and sunny. So I strongly recommend that you bring a hat to wear and maybe some sunscreen.

    Also, It would be GREAT if most of us could bring a folding lawn chair to allow folks to sit during the event, particularly our seasoned saints.

  5. Baptism class Saturday morning

    Just one final reminder that tomorrow morning, Saturday, May 17th, I will be conducting a 90-minute class on baptism. We will be looking at the relevant passages of scripture and I will be answering any questions which you may have.

    We will begin at 10:00 AM in the Lighthouse and conclude on or before 11:30 AM You are not obligated in any way to be baptized as a result of taking the class.
