Sunday Worship Service

Troy will share a VBS kick-off message entitled

“Built for a Purpose- To look like Christ”.

Join us at 9:30 for cafe and Sunday School. The worship service begins at 10:30.

From Pastor Troy

Dear Church Family,

It is with great prayer that I hope you will bring your kids to VBS this week - maybe even reach out to see if their friends or neighborhood kids can come. You never know that through your initiative, you can truly change a kids life forever. This Sunday I will be preaching about what our VBS is all about…

“Being Built for a Purpose”

When I think about that purpose, I automatically think about being built to look more like Jesus. What a great image that is! So, join me in praying for this week, that lives will change not just for your kids, but for you as well. Thanks for making a difference and thanks for serving at Living Hope!


VBS Hospitality

*Please contact Shelly, Kami, or Troy ASAP to help out!*

It's VBS time and we need to make sure we take care of all our hard VBS workers with snacks for them. If you could please help Shelly Draper and Kami Allen, we would greatly appreciate that! There will be a sign up sheet available to sign Sunday morning, but you can also e-mail, Facebook message or text Shelly or Kami choosing which day or days you want to bring your food. We will need snacks Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday night. Wednesday will be family night so no food will be needed as the church provides that night.

Thank you in advance for your help!!!

Shelly Draper & Kami Allen
