  1. Outreach Book Is Here!

    Hope Chapel,

    Our outreach book Reset is finally here. Thank you to everyone who participated in giving testimonies and to those who have prayed for this project. We have two more phases to go!

    1. I want you to take a copy home and read it. Then please ask God who would be a good person to share the book with. Don’t be afraid to give up your copy. I can always order another box of 50 if you want to reread it. Remember, this is a tool to help people far from God come close by coming to know Him. We need to ask Him for fruitfulness, wisdom and grace throughout this whole endeavor.
    2. The last phase is where we have the opportunity to sponsor books being sent directly to homes in the Hope Chapel neighborhood. It’s going to come across as “hey, we published this book and we’re proud of how it turned out. Since you’re a neighbor, we wanted you to have a free publisher’s copy.” It’s not weird at all and has -traditionally- had a high readership rate. The goal is to reach the unreached in our midst. If you want to fill out a sponsorship card to help me with this part, let me know. Or, if you just want to help by donating a small amount to the Outreach Book account to help cover the costs from publishing the book, you can do that as well.

    Thanks! And please keep praying for God’s grace to draw people to Him.

    Matt

  2. AtHome Weekly available online for parents

    Dear Parents,

    As a way to partner with you as you disciple your children, we are happy to provide you with a PDF of the HomeFront Weekly handout.

    HomeFront Weeklies are far more than a “Take-Home” page: they allow you to pre-teach the Bible lesson that will be taught next Sunday morning in our kids’ classes at Hope Chapel.  They are a valuable tool which can equip you to be the primary nurturers of your children’s faith in your home during the week.

    Take some time this week to read through the scripture passages and do a couple of the activities with your children. You’ll be glad you did!

    Kindergarten AtHome Weekly for December 9

    Elementary AtHome Weekly for December 9

     

  3. Christmas Eve Service at 5PM

    Come as you are: dressed for photos in front of the tree or with the kids in pajamas. Begin a tradition with us Christmas Eve at 5:00 PM.  Bring your family and friends to sing the carols and hear the story once again of when Hope came as a human and lived among us. Then stand in the darkness as the first candle is lit and see it slowly spread across the room, candle to candle. Until at last, enveloped in the glow, we remember when The Light came into the world and pierced the darkness.

  4. International Reception- Dec 9

    We are thrilled to have three of our visiting overseas workers with us on Sunday, December 9, at Hope Chapel. We will host a luncheon after service, inside the sanctuary, to hear briefly from them and have an open time of questions and answers. Please join us for lunch, and to bless our friends with prayer! RSVP on Realm by Dec 6, or email Ceci@theproegers.com

  5. Our dear brother, John Bibee, is with the Lord. Memorial Service in 2019

    From his daughter, Maria:

    Our hearts are broken and yet we have hope that we will meet again and that today he is dancing on streets of gold.

    Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.” John 11:25-26

    I would like to thank all of those friends and family who have been with us during this battle over the past year and a half – praying, cooking meals, sitting with Dad during chemo appointments (the list goes on) – and also those who came to see him this past week to sing to him, tell him how much he meant to you, share memories… Our family is so very grateful for your support and care, and seeing the outpouring of love towards him has brought great comfort to us all.

    Our family plans to have a memorial service at a later date, perhaps in the new year and we would love to have you there to reflect on and celebrate his life. I will share details about this service when the time comes. Finally, his wishes were to be cremated and buried in a family plot in Missouri, which will also take place at a later date.

    With all our love, we miss you, Dad.

    Hope Chapel will post information here at hope.org and on our Facebook page when the memorial service is scheduled.
