SMALL GROUPS

Small Groups are a vital part of getting connected with others and forming deeper relationships than a quick ‘hello’ on Sunday mornings. The first study sheets will be out on September 21st.  You can contact Damon Briggs at damon.briggs@mitchellandness.com with any questions.

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY NEWS

 

READY? SET… GO!

HopeKids! has launched the Go Zone as the new name for our kids Sunday morning service! We are GOing for GOD, GOing for GROWTH, and GOing FOREVER! The Go Zone is a service entirely focused around the kids, in which we connect by playing games, worshipping with one another, and hearing a message from God’s Word in fun, creative ways before heading off to Sunday school for the rest of the service.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

 

OPPORTUNITES TO SERVE

 

NURSERY

We have a need for at least three more people to help in our Nursery.  God has blessed us with so many babies – we just don’t have enough hands to give your little ones the attention they deserve.  If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer, please contact Alicia or Don Heverly at lilfeet21@hotmail.com.

 

MEALS MINISTRY

Here at Hope we like to take care of our people!  When we know someone who recently had a baby, has an illness in the family, or any other occasion where having the burden of preparing a family dinner removed would be a big help – we like to take care of that for them!  If you would be interested in occasionally making or delivering a meal, contact Pat Nolan at pationolan@comcast.net.

 

FOOD PANTRY

We’ve been giving out LOTS of food – what a blessing it is to be able to help ease the burden for so many families!  But that means we are in need of a major restocking for our pantry! Any donations would be greatly appreciated!

Please check the expiration dates of any donations and place in the basket located outside the kitchen door. Contact Karen Blythe with any questions or if you are interested in helping with our pantry. Thank you!
