What's new at Hope.

  1. “Holy Week” Arts Update 04/15

    Hey Art Cats, this week of Holy Week we are NOT meeting on Wednesday Night. There is however a Good Friday service at Hope at 7PM.

    Regular Wednesday Night meetings will resume on the 24th.

  2. Arts Update 04-10-2019

     

     

    We are having Family Night Studio Group, dinner at 5:30-5:16 P.M. in the Family Room at Hope Chapel, and then on to the studio space for our open creation / group time. Bring some liturgy and a  piece of art (yours or a classic master’s) to share with the group, and be ready to pray (for revival in our city) before we begin our discussion / creation time.

     

     

    There are no HopeArts Events planned until June, though the Hope Chapel Family is having its May Gifts Night, and I strongly strongly strongly urge all performance-based artists (eg slam poets, musicians, thespians, dancers) to sign-up for a slot — it blesses in significant ways to be a part of this event.

    Likewise, April 19th is Good Friday, and personally speaking, the Good Friday service is an incredible intersection of the existential and artistic within the life of faith, the narratives of which stir in me worship. I encourage us to attend, but sign up for childcare through the Children’s Ministry page soon.

  3. Children’s Baptism Classes in May

    Hello Parents of Hope!

    Our annual baptism Sunday is scheduled for June 2, 2019. If your child has been asking about being baptized this year, please plan on attending two classes with Matt Ryniker and Hala Tompkins on May 22 and 29. We’ll begin at 6:30 in the second grade classroom and be done by 8.

    Designed for children aged eight and older, these two classes are designed to help parents and kids determine together if this is the right year for baptism. Because of this, parents are asked to attend class with their children each week.

    Contact Hala if you have more questions or would like to sign up for the class. Childcare will be provided upon request.
