What's new at Hope.

  1. What is Christian Marriage?

    What is Christian Marriage?

    Paul interjected a Christ filled view into the world.Ephesians.5:21-24

    Submission is very specific here.

    There are 9 verses for the husband,3 verses for the wives.

    Ephesians 5:22-27

    Husbands give up your life.

    Wives should submit freely on their own.  Wives should choose to submit.  Husbands can not demand it.Husbands make it hard for wives to submit.Submissions is a gift.Submission can not be earned.Only Christ can demand submission.It is always a gift to each other.  Submission is not deserved.

    This all is a great and joyful teaching.  It is precious.

    How did Christ love the church.  He gave his life.  Husbands should do the same.

  2. What About The Tithe?

    Giving or Tithing

    There is a great deal of confusion around this subject.

    Matthew 23:23-24

    23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness. These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others. 24 You blind guides, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel!

    It’s not about tithing.  We are not under the law.  It’s about the relationship.  Giving is just a part of the relationship.

    He loved you before you turned and said “yes”

  3. HopeKids Classes at 10am Service– What to Expect

    Dear Parents,

    We are happy to be able to provide in-person classes for kids of all ages on Sunday mornings! Here’s what to expect the you come this week.

    Please note: Children are not required to wear masks while at Hope Chapel.

    You can check your kids in when you first arrive by going to the Coffee Shop and using the check-in kiosk there. Classes for Babies, Toddlers and Twos begin just before 10am, so once your little ones are checked in, just walk them down the hallway to their classrooms. Older kids will be released to their classes after worship; just listen for the special song.

    What COVID precautions are we taking? Our large classrooms are clean and sanitized. Hand sanitizer is available in abundance, and teachers are wearing face coverings while in class.

    Remember: if anyone in your home has been sick, your whole family should stay home this week.

    Contact Hala if you have further questions!

  4. Earn All You Can. Save All You Can. Give All You Can.

    Earn all you can. Save all you can. Give all you can.  Charles Wesley.

    Set up a budget and live by it.

    Simplicity: develops the spiritual discipline of simplicity.

    Lust of things is deadly to the spirit of God

    Mat. 6:31:33

    31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

    Reject anything that is producing an addiction in you

    Give stuff away.

    Learn to enjoy things without owning them.

    Getting rid of everything that doesn’t matter allows you to remember who you are

    Earn all you can. Save all you can. Give all you can.

    Giving is a joy.  We will be blessed and be able to bless others.

    By giving stuff away I can learn to trust God, who is the most generous.

    Applied atheism is working 7 days a week.  God is my resource.  Take a sabbath.

    Ask God what do give your money to.  He will help you.

    I want to bless my kids and grandkids.

    I want to be able to help my friends.

    I want to be able to help the poor.

    I want to be able to help Hope Chapel and Hope Missionaries.

    Without a vision people parish.  A vision for our funds. Give all you can.  Write a budget and stick by it.

    Randy Alcorn.   Cheerful giver.

    Are you a chicken or a pig giver.  Pig is fully committed chicken is not.

  5. Work: A Biblical Perspective

    There are twice as many disengaged workers as there are engaged workers.
    God Himself is a Worker.
    God calls us to co-labor with Him.
    We honor God with our work.

  6. Renewal is at the Core of Christian Faith

    Renewal is at the core of Christian Faith

    Embrace Great Hope.

    Ephesians 5:11-14

    11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. 13 But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, 14 for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says,

    “Awake, O sleeper,
        and arise from the dead,
    and Christ will shine on you.”
