Communities of Hope,

She said "There was a time in my life when I would go to church every week because there were faces there that I needed to see just to get through the next seven days."

These were the overhead words of a woman describing how the Lord used His gathered people as a means of grace in her life.  It is easy to minimize the importance of gathering together as a collective church. This Sunday we will conclude Renew 2015 by discovering why we Gather on Sunday mornings and how it relates to our vision as a church?

Don't forget to fill out and bring your commitment cards this Sunday to share the ways you intend to offer your time and resources back to the Lord in worship through Downtown Hope in 2015. And don't forget to bring a dish to share as we will end Renew 2015 with a church wide potluck.  Come prepared to hear and share stories of how the Lord furthered His vision through the people of Downtown Hope in 2014!

grace to you + peace,

Joey
