Faith Pause: Online Discussion Group
This January we are starting a new online discussion group at Hope. We understand that life can be hectic and busy. That’s why finding time to pause is so important. Each week, a new video will be posted into the Facebook group “Faith Pause at Hope” along with questions for discussion and prayers. It is an opportunity for you to pause as you are able and to participate in discussion and community from wherever you are. Feel free to join the group on Facebook or send your Facebook name to Pastor Kristin and she will add you to the group.
Come & See: New Sermon Series
The Gospel of John begins with: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.”
The following verses and chapters then invite us to see who Jesus is through his actions and early ministry interactions. This January we invite you to Come and See Jesus again and explore how his coming into the world transforms our lives yet today. Like visiting the eye doctor to make sure we see clearly, taking time to explore who John says Jesus is, helps us to follow more closely and see him more clearly.
