Welcome to Good Hope!


Can you feel the excitement in the air?  Do you have that feeling that something BIG is about to happen?  Well, I can tell you that I have that feeling … in a big way!


First, our 2019-20 Sunday school and adult education program year is about to begin (yea!!)  On Sunday September 8th we’ll have our annual rally day … a time to enjoy ice cream at the make-your-own-sundae bar.  And then on Sunday September 15th
classes begin. 


Secondly, Monday night adult bible study continues (it begins at 7:00 pm in the Confirmation classroom [that’s room #7]).  The group has been meeting during the summer months, but now’s a great time for you to jump into the book of Romans.  

   

Thirdly (if that’s actually a word), later this month, I’ll begin offering a bible study on various topics in the bible (we’ll discuss things like, what does the bible say about anger, love, grace and forgiveness, worry, life struggles, and doubt to name just a few expected topics.)  Stay tuned for more information.


Finally, I am thrilled with the mission opportunity called ‘Village Spirit’ … our partnership with Christus Victor Lutheran Church, and the It Takes A Village Academy (located right next door to us) to minister to families of the Academy, and to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.  


I invite you to join us on Sunday morning (10:30 am for traditional Lutheran worship ) or on Sunday evening (6:00 pm for 30 minutes of readings, prayer, and communion) to rest and relax in the palm of God's hands.


God bless you, and see you on Sunday!
