Comments from our Pastor
Psalm 32 says, “Blessed is
he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are
covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord does
not count against him and
in whose spirit is no
deceit.” Are you a blessed person
according to this Psalm?
We at Hope Church consider
ourselves to be blessed because of what Christ
has accomplished for us
when He went to the cross. Christ
forgives us of our sin,
gives us the free gift of
eternal life and provides us with His guidance as we
walk with Him and trust
Him day by day.
But we also count
ourselves to be blessed to be part of a great ministry of
outreach, not just to our
community but to others as well. While
traveling, sightseeing and using the summer as down time,
the people of our church
were busy about God’s work.
There are many examples of
the commitment of our congregation. A
number from our church
were involved in the EFCA Camp at Twin Oaks Ranch
in Buda. Through preaching, teaching, counseling, cooking,
drama, craft leaders,
lifeguards at the pool and
creek plus other acts of service, our team showed the
love of God and shared the
life changing message of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
As a result of this
unified effort, twelve youth committed their lives to Jesus Christ.
Most recently, Caleb
Milne, our Youth Leader, led a team of seventeen leaders
and students to work with
BUMP (Bridging Urban Missions Program) of the EFCA
in the inner city of Baltimore,
Maryland. What a great experience as the
of our church got to
observe first-hand real inner city life!
They served the Baltimore Church
by hosting a block party in conjunction with
Vacation Bible School,
cleaning the area around the church, passing out food
in the distressed
neighborhood, and many other acts of kindness and service
to the local community.
Many lives were touched and five children came to
Also, our church hosted a
week-long Vacation Bible School with an average
attendance of around sixty
people. The NASCAR theme called “Drive” was
with the kids as they
learned the importance of running the race of life to win
with Jesus as their
sponsor and the Bible as their guide. Five children made
decisions for Christ there
We express special
“thanks” to all who invested their time, talents and
resources to make this
summer special for many children.
If you are seeking a small
church where you can be part of the family of
God, use your gifts, and
make a difference for Christ, we invite
