Welcome to Hope Talk
I need to apologize to all the mothers at Hope. Last Sunday was Mother’s Day, and I failed to mention it. No excuse. I had it in my notes and was prepared to speak to it with much material but my mind after worship singing (I think it was the Kids song that got me) went straight to the sermon in my head. So I hope that you did have a great Mother’s Day, and I wanted to share some things that should have been said. I come from a wonderful childhood because of a wonderful mother who made the entire home a place of love, warmth, and laughter. She (Martha was her name) loved being a mother. That was her calling and joy in her life. Like all of you, she was willing to give of herself to make her family healthy and happy. Her voice was filled with grace, wisdom, and humor throughout my young years and even till the day she passed into the Lord’s arms. I never knew a day when “No one loves me.” Because there was always Mom. She was truly the heart of the home and constantly caring for all the needs of the family. Yes, she was not perfect in her life with dad (they argued without reconciliation) she did love him all her life. In all of this, she gripped the greatest calling in her life by being a mother and I am the better for it. Moms… there are days when you could just pack up and live another life but just know this from a boy who saw the sacrifice, knew the love, understood the pain, and watch Christ in her – you will never be forgotten by those you have mothered. So keep you eyes on the Lord, enjoy the trials, laugh more than you do, take breaks (lots of them), spend time alone talking to Jesus about your family, and watch God do wonders. Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing. But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. (Pro.31:30) Blessings. Happy Mother's Week.

According to our church documents all Deacons are to be placed before the congregation for 30 days to give an opportunity for the church members to voice a reason to reconsider the nominee. The Elders have put forward the following individuals as Deacons and are asking the members of Hope to prayerfully consider them as such. If for any reason you have questions to their character, life, or reputation according to 1 Timothy 3:8-13, please contact the Elders (Will Lohnes, Greg Page, Ian Pruden, Mark Nestberg).
