Welcome to Hope Talk
2020 has been a year of change and flexibility. It has taught us that things change. Now we knew this, but we were daily and constantly reminded that life does not stay the same and we must consider different paths and actions to accomplish the same conclusion or destination. Not a bad lesson and one we need to hold on to in walking with Jesus. Sunday will be a very special day and one that you do not want to miss. The Lord has brought many new ministries, people, friends, and opportunities our way and we are following the Lord as best as we can. Following the sermon, we will have a Family time at Hope to learn how God is leading us for the future. We must continually Trust in the Lord… In all your ways acknowledge the Lord and He will direct our paths. (Pr.3:5,6) This will be a meeting of Members of Hope AND those who wanting to know the Way of the Lord for Hope in the near future. After all the information is given out, the Elders will stay around for you to answer questions to clarify and communicate in particular matters of interests. God is good and we want to make sure that we are following our Mission Statement in the best way possible. Hope Chapel exists to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ so how do we make disciples of Jesus Christ? What does that mean? This always requires sacrifice to serve the King. When Jesus was on earth His constant reminder to His disciples and those who would listen that they would need to deny themselves, pick up the cross and follow Him. Paul also stated this truth. Sacrifice to Serve. (Mt.10:38; Mk.8:34, Mk.10:21; Lk.9:23-27, Lk.14:27; Acts 14:22; Col.1:24; 1Th.3:3; 2Ti.3:12; Hb.11:24-26) Read those verses, spend some time thinking through them and ask yourself if you are willing to do that.
