We are starting BACK to worship at Hope UMC starting this Sunday, Aug. 9th and we are SO EXCITED to be able to worship together with our church family and friends.
Of course, for everyone’s safety, there are some extra steps that we need to all take.
There are specific entrances to use:
Havelock worship is @ 9:00 a.m. each Sunday. Use only the Rear Kitchen (EAST) entrance
Pocahontas worship is @ 10:30 a.m: Use only theEAST handicapentrance & theNorth Officeentrance
We ask everyone to enter wearing a facemask, with the exception of children not old enough to attend school or those with a medical release.
If you forget a mask, our talented seamstresses have sewn some extras so you can borrow one for worship and return it afterward. (Of course, all borrowed masks will be washed before the next week’s service!)
Use the provided hand sanitizer, both on entering and exiting worship
Buckets will be available for your offering near each sanctuary entrance.
Please be seated in pews with every other row left empty and socially distant by households
After worship, you will be dismissed by ushers to avoid bottlenecks at the exits.
You may gather outside for conversation but please use social distancing and wear your masks
Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we adapt to our current circumstances. We “HOPE” to see you on Sunday in person!
If you were unable to join us for worship today, you can listen to Pastor Kris’s message below.
Also, we will be meeting together OUTSIDE next Sunday, Aug. 2nd, at 10:30 at Meredith Park (aka Plover Pit). You will need to bring your own chair, and we will practice social distancing. Bring along your mask as well. The shelter house is reserved for our worship service. We “HOPE” to see you there!

A simple way to be sure to include God in our day is by using this simple method. Say a short phrase as you breathe in, and complete it as you breathe out. Some examples:
Breathe in (Lord Jesus Christ); Breathe out (have mercy on me).......
Breathe in (The Lord is my shepherd); Breathe out (I shall not want).......
Breathe in (Oh holy spirit); Breathe out (please guide me today).......
It's an easy way to include God in everything that we do!
