Hope UMC Worship 9-25-2022

If you were unable to join us for worship yesterday, either in person or online, you can watch the service below. Three key words: Repent, Surrender, Follow! What a powerful message!

Please attend Important Informational Church Meetings

Hope UMC Leadership Team voted and approved the hosting of three informational meetings for our congregation at their Sept. 21st meeting.  The purpose of these meetings is to inform our church family about the impending division of the United Methodist Church, and options that Hope UMC has in that process.

The meetings are the opportunity to inform and to hear everyone’s thoughts and concerns.  After the third meeting, the Leadership Team would need to approve a congregational vote by professing members of Hope UMC.  Attending these meetings will be extremely important for our entire church family.

The meetings are scheduled for:

  • Monday, Sept. 26th @ 6:30 – 8:30 pm
  • Sunday, Oct. 9th @ 2:00 – 4:00 pm
  • Tuesday, Oct. 18th @ 6:30 – 8:30 pm

We feel we cannot make an informed decision about the future of Hope without these meetings. Please plan to attend as many of them as possible while you keep our church lifted in prayer during this time.

King’s Kids needs YOU!

If you have already replied to a previous email, THANK YOU!  If you have not, please prayerfully consider volunteering by completing the attached form in the message below.  The reality is we cannot do this program without some dedicated helpers for our SMALL GROUPS each time we meet. Please reply as soon as possible so we can determine if we have enough manpower to move forward with this programming for the youth in our county.  Have a blessed day!

Dear Church Family and Community Friends,

        Now that school is back in session, it is time to start planning for another year of King’s Kids.  The Hope UMC Education Team strives to provide the best faith-based educational opportunities for our congregation.  We are all very aware of how wild and crazy the world we live in has become.  With this in mind, we feel compelled to focus our efforts on helping not only the children in our church family, but all the children of Pocahontas County.  All children need to be better equipped to deal with the difficult issues they face on a daily basis.  Through the King’s Kids Program, we feel we can continue to provide opportunities for youth to learn about the love of Jesus and develop a relationship with Him.  As adults, we rely on our faith in God daily, and all children need to know they can do the same!

      We would like to thank you and applaud the efforts of all the volunteers who have helped with King’s Kids since its revival in 2019.  It is our hope that by securing another team of amazing volunteers, we will be able to move forward with King’s Kids for the 2022-2023 school year.

Here are a few details about the proposed 2022-2023 King’s Kids Program:

  •  Wednesdays, 3:20 – 5:15 p.m.   (2-3 sessions per month)
  • 12 sessions

                  November 16, 30        December 14    January 4, 18

                  February 1, 15            March 1, 15, 29           April 12, 19

  • Areas where help is needed:

            Prayer Warriors – pray for the King’s Kids & volunteers    

            Set up – Tuesday and/or Wednesday afternoons

            Snacks – providing, setting up, serving

            Small group assistants – help supervise kids during snack, WOW Time (all kids gather in the sanctuary by grade level for intro. to the lesson, music, object lesson, Bible videos, etc.), craft time, game time, etc. (directions provided)

Audio/visual people – run the equipment/soundboard during WOW (WOW = Worship on Wednesday)Time

      Last year we had over 70 kids sign up to be a part of the King’s Kids Program.  With that many energetic elementary kids, it took a lot of dedicated volunteers to make the program a success.  God is definitely at work at Hope UMC.  I can’t wait to see what He has in store for us this year!  Please prayerfully consider how you can be a part of the team.  Please let us know how you are willing to help by clicking on this link:  King’s Kids Volunteer form  and completing it by September 16th.  If you have any questions, please call me at 712-358-0556.  We are so excited to start building our team for the 2022-2023 King’s Kids Program!  We can’t do it without you!

God Bless!

Baptisms at Hope UMC last Sunday (9-18-2022)

On Sunday, Sept. 19th, we were blessed to have three children of God baptized at the Poky Center. Those being baptized were:

  • Monica Sweeney
  • Zion David-Keith Sweeney
  • Xavier James Pearcy

It says in Matthew 28:19-20, “19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

We are so happy we could share in this special day with each of you. We will continue to lift you in prayer as your faith journey grows!

Homecoming & 5th Quarter fun!

Thanks to everyone who helped support PAC students and Homecoming last night. Although the game didn’t end as we hoped it would, we are still proud of our students!

We had fun representing Hope during the parade. Thanks to everyone who was able to ride and help throw out goodies to the crowd! A special thanks to Steve, Bruce and Brad for your help in making this possible!

Then, following the game, Hope hosted the 5th Quarter fun event. There was approximately 60 students who came and grabbed a bite to eat, shared a moment with others, and then headed to the Homecoming game. What a great group of youth our community is blessed with!

Enjoy pics from both our parade entry and 5th Quarter! And thanks to all our church family for your support to make these events happen!
