Well… here’s the RAGBRAI update: the noodles are cooked, the hamburger browned, the sauce is made, cookies and bars are being delivered, and Fellowship Hall is set up! Whew!

THANKS to everyone who has pitched in with this HUGE project so far…. this will be such a great outreach to our RAGBRAI friends!’

Keep the prayers coming for Monday!!

Enjoy a few pics from the process!

Getting ready to welcome our RAGBRAI Guests!

RAGBRAI riders – – when you get to Pocahontas, check out all the options you have at Hope UMC: Watermelon and water starting at 11:00 am; Spaghetti Supper starting at 3:30 pm; and Chris Cakes pancakes on your route (about 12 miles out of town) starting by 6:00 am on Tuesday morning! We “HOPE” to see you soon and we are praying for your safe ride!

New sign at Pocahontas Center

Whoo Hoo! Our new sign is finally here and looks beautiful! A special thanks to the Lubinus family and to everyone else who helped make this project a reality! Drive by and see how awesome it looks! (know that it looks MUCH better in person than it does in the pictures!)

PS: Hmmmmm….Do you think we will see a dad joke every now and then?? 😉

Heritage Days Worship Service

We had a wonderful outdoor worship service this morning at Heritage Park. Thank you to everyone who joined us, and a special thanks to God for providing the beautifully warm and sunny day! It was a good reminder to focus on our heritage – – going all the way back to our Heavenly Father. He is always there…. patiently waiting for each one of us to come to Him!

Heritage Days fun & Outdoor Worship tomorrow!

We had lots of fun at the Heritage Days Parade! (Remember that our church service is OUTSIDE in the morning at Heritage Park – – under the tent – – at 10:00 a.m.) There will not be worship at either the Havelock or Poky Centers. As a bonus, there will be breakfast burritos available to snack on for a free will offering! Enjoy the pics from the parade!

PS: Since Hope’s worship service tomorrow is outside, it will NOT be live-streamed!

Happy Anniversary, Pastor K!

We had a fun day celebrating the one year anniversary of Pastor K being our Pastor at Hope UMC today. What a blessing it has been! Thanks, Hopkins, for ordering the special cookies for the occasion. They were absolutely perfect!! And thanks, Pastor K, for all that you do for our church and community!

Hope UMC Worship 7-10-2022

If you were unable to join us for worship today, you can watch the service below. It was a good reminder of what being a neighbor really means! “Won’t you please? Won’t you please? Please won’t you be my neighbor!!”

Back to School Supplies for UDMO

The mission team wants you to know about another local project that you can help with. UDMO is colleting specific school supplies to distribute to families in our community. These items may be dropped off at church and put in the grocery carts. All items need to be to the church by July 31st. Thanks for your help!

More VBS Day Camp fun!

Just a few more pics that capture the fun we had at VBS Day Camp last week! Thanks to everyone for helping make it such a great time learning about Jesus and how our “HOPE” is anchored in Him!!
