  2. Children’s Baptism Classes on August 7 & 14

    One of the spiritual milestones for kids at Hope Chapel is a public confession of their faith and a baptism ceremony. As preparation, Pastor Matthew Ryniker teaches a foundational class on the meaning and significance of baptism.

    Designed for children aged eight and older, Matt’s class is designed to help parents and kids determine together if this is the right year for baptism. Because of the importance of this decision, parents are asked to attend class with their children each week and childcare for younger siblings will be provided upon request.

    Classes will meet on August 7 in the Family Room. We’ll start at 9:30 and be done no later than 11am.

    Contact Hala if you have more questions or would like to sign up for the class.

    Bring a friend and come and worship outdoors on the Hope Chapel front lawn at 9:00 a.m. Sunday, June 20th!

    Prayer, praise, fellowship and teaching – all in less than one hour. If you would like to sit, please bring your own lawn chair or blanket. We ask folks to maintain physical distancing and practice good hand hygiene. Mask-wearing is not required outdoors.

    My hope is built on nothing less
    Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
    I dare not trust the sweetest frame
    But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name

    Chorus:Christ alone, Cornerstone
    Weak made strong in the Savior’s love
    Through the storm He is Lord, Lord of all

    When darkness seems to hide His face
    I rest on His unchanging grace
    In every high and stormy gale
    My anchor holds within the veil

    Interlude: He is Lord Lord of all

    When He shall come with trumpet sound
    Oh, may I then in Him be found
    Dressed in His righteousness alone
    Faultless stand before the throne


    Build My Life

    Worthy of ev’ry song we could ever sing
    Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
    Worthy of ev’ry breath we could ever breathe, We live for You

    Jesus the name above ev’ry other name
    Jesus the only one who could ever save
    Worthy of ev’ry breath we could ever breathe
    We live for You, We live for You

    Chorus: Holy, there is no one like You
    There is none beside You
    Open up my eyes in wonder, and show me who You are
    And fill me with Your heart
    And lead me in Your love to those around me

    Bridge: I will build my life upon Your love
    It is a firm foundation
    I will put my trust in You alone
    And I will not be shaken


    Goodness of God

    I love You Lord, Oh, Your mercy never fails me
    All my days I’ve been held in Your hands
    From the moment that I wake up until I lay my head I will sing of the goodness of God

    Chorus: All my life You have been faithful
    All my life You have been so, so good
    With every breath that I am able
    I will sing of the goodness of God

    I love Your voice, You have led me through the fire
    In darkest night You are close like no other
    I’ve known You as a father, I’ve known You as a friend, I have lived in the goodness of God

    Bridge: Your goodness is running after, It’s running after me
    Your goodness is running after, It’s running after me
    With my life laid down, I’m surrendered now
    I give You everything
    Your goodness is running after, It’s running after me


    You Are My All in All

    You are my strength when I am weak; You are the treasure that I seek
    You are my all in all
    Seeking You as a precious jewel
    Lord, to give up I’d be a fool
    You are my all in all

    Chorus: Jesus, Lamb of God, Worthy is Your name (2X)

    Taking my sin, my cross, my shame; Rising again I praise Your name
    You are my all in all
    When I fall down You pick me up
    When I am dry You fill my cup
    You are my all in all


    All Glory

    Holy holy You are God Almighty
    And You reign victorious over all the earth
    Holy holy You are God Almighty
    Yes You reign victorious over all the earth

    Chorus: Let Your Kingdom come, let Your will be done
    Here on Earth as it is in Heaven
    And to Your renown hear our hearts cry out
    Singing, “Holy is the Lord!”

    God of glory, see Your victory story
    In the lives of those who gather at the cross
    Rock of ages, be adorned with praises
    As Your people raise their voice in thanks and love

    Bridge: All glory, all honor, all wisdom, strength, and power
    All glory, all honor are Yours alone, forever
