What's new at Hope.

  1. Redeemed Ministry Coaster Party

    Ladies, come join us in supporting Redeemed Ministries in freeing Austin women from the slavery of human trafficking. We’ll  hear from Calli at Redeemer Ministries about their mission and see how we can join in their walk to offer light to those in darkness.  We’ll also help support a woman making the transition to a new life out of slavery.

    We’ll have refreshments and the chance to ask questions and meet a woman making her way out of human trafficking bondage.

    Please RSVP HERE

  2. New Women’s Wednesday Night Bible Study

    Undaunted: Daring to Do What God Calls You to Do with Christine Caine
    Christine Caine offers life-transforming insights about how not only to overcome the challenges, wrong turns, and often painful circumstances we all experience, but also to actually grow from those experiences and be equipped and empowered to help others. Using her own dramatic life story, Caine shows how God rescued her from a life where she was unnamed, unwanted, and unqualified. She tells how she overcame abuse, abandonment, fears, and other challenges to go on a mission of adventure, fueled by faith and filled with love and courage. Her personal stories inspire readers to hear their name called, just as Christine heard her own—“You are beloved. You are the hope. You are chosen”—to go into a dark and troubled world, knowing each of us possess all it takes to bring hope, create change, and live completely for Christ. Part inspirational tale, part manifesto to stir readers to lives of adventure, Undaunted shows the way with spiritual wisdom and insight. SIGN UP HERE

  4. Moms’ Book Club

    Cherri and Hala are pleased to invite you to join us for a discussion of the book Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe by Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson. The weekly conversation will be led by Cherri. We will discuss two chapters each week, paying special attention to applying the ideas and challenges addressed in the book. Please contact Cherri (Cherri @ mcilheran.com) to let her know you are coming! Bring a friend.
    What: We will discuss the book: Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe by Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson. Participants should order a copy of the book and read the first two chapters prior to our first meeting on January 19.
    When and Where: Monday evenings from 7-8:30 PM at Panera Bread on Capital of Texas Hwy near REI and Whole Foods. We will meet on seven Mondays, ending on March 2.
    Who: Desperate is for those who love their children to the depths of their souls but who have also curled up under their covers, fighting back tears, and begging God for help. It’s for those who have ever wondered what happened to all their ideals for what having children would be like. For those who have ever felt like all the “experts” have clearly never had a child like theirs. For those who have prayed for a mentor. For those who ever felt lost and alone in motherhood.
    Questions? Contact Cherri (cherri @ mcilheran.com or
    We hope to see you there!
