Weekly Bulletin
 Welcome . . . to all those who come to morning worship. May you sense God’s presence in a powerful way during your worship time here. Hope Church is a multi-generational family of believers that regularly gathers under the banner Christ’s grace. As such, we gladly invite each person, young and old, to participate as they are able in worship with the Family of Families during the morning’s service.
