MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR’S WIFE

 

Ladies of Hopewell,

Spring has sprung and as you already know, Easter, or Resurrection Sunday is celebrated during nature’s season of spring and just like the season of spring, it is about new life. In 2 Corinthians 5:17 it says, Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Our new life, our new creation, springs from Jesus Christ. Just as plant life re-emerges from the earth during spring and can’t be held back, the earth could not hold Jesus, He emerged and because Christ came up from the ground, our new life comes from knowing Him, belonging to Him, not nature or nature’s things. So, let’s celebrate His resurrection, as well as our new life in Him.

On Saturday, April 21st at 10am we will kick-off our new Heart to Heart mentoring ministry. If you have signed up as a mentee or to serve as a mentor, please be present as we launch this much needed event over brunch.

It’s that time again to grab your rod, reels, fishing pole, tackle box and head for the lake. That’s right; the 9th Annual Ladies at the Lake will take place on Saturday, May 5th at Markham Park in Sunrise. The cost is only $20.00 per person. A hearty lunch will be served. Prizes will be awarded for the first fish, the largest fish and the most fish caught. Table games and other activities will be available for anyone who doesn’t enjoy fishing. So, get the word out and you are encouraged to invite a close friend. This year you will need to present your meal ticket when lunch is served. So, purchase your ticket in advance and please keep it in your wallet, car or wherever it will be accessible to you on the day of the event.

Mission Hope project is an ongoing outreach effort to help those who are less fortunate. The lists of items that are needed to fill the tote bags are available in the foyer along with the “purple” storage bin. All filled bags will be taken to the local homeless shelter. Filling the little bags can make a big difference in a homeless person’s life. We appreciate your continued support.

 

HIS love and Mine,
