I believe in…. the forgiveness of sins

Do you ever sin?  If you are human, the answer is almost definitely yes!  Luckily, we have a big God who loves us and wants to forgive us!  Join us tomorrow to learn more about  this very human problem:

  1. Who needs forgiveness?  (who doesn’t??)
  2. Will God forgive my sins? (if we sincerely ask him!)
  3. Must I forgive others?  (yup, the tricky part!  🙂 )

So, do you still love your children/spouse/family when they make mistakes?  Of course we do!  And our God is an awesome God, and He will forgive us – – if only we can forgive ourselves!

Join us for worship tomorrow, Sunday, April 2nd at Havelock @ 8:30 or Pocahontas @ 10:00.

Perfection is not required!  Which is a good thing, because it would be a very small crowd!  So, please, invite a friend, a neighbor, a co-worker…. they are all welcome in God’s wonderful family!

Set your clocks AHEAD so you don’t miss the Lenten Series on Sunday, March 12th!

Tonight, Saturday March 11th, remember to SPRING AHEAD for Daylight Savings Hour, and set your clocks UP an hour so you can make it to church on time!!

And remember, the 8:30 worship service is now back at the Havelock Center for the Spring quarter!

And on March 5th, Hope UMC  began a new sermon series  entitled CREED by Adam Hamilton.

We’re all searching. Sometimes the search is easy: simply type a question and the answer pops up. But sometimes our questions are complicated, and the answers are difficult to see and harder to articulate. How do we discover and examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life? Adam Hamilton believes that some powerful answers are contained in the Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs.

In this book for Lent, Easter, and beyond, Hamilton considers important questions of life, reality, and truth. He explores not only what Christians believe, but also why they believe it and why it matters.

Chapters include:

  • God
  • Jesus Christ
  • The Holy Spirit
  • The Church at the Communion of Saints
  • The Forgiveness of Sins
  • The Resurrection of the Body

We hope you will join us for this sermon series.

Tomorrow, January 29th, our After Epiphany:  The Great Invitation series continues with #Blessed.

We’ve seen Jesus in action. Now we settle in for the first of four weeks to hear him teach his first disciples with a large crowd in the background.  He sets us straight about who and what God’s kingdom is blessing in the world.

How are you Blessed? What does it mean to be Blessed?  Come learn what Jesus taught about this in worship tomorrow.

Worship begins at 8:30 a.m. in Plover and at  10 a.m. in Pocahontas at Hope UMC.  We “Hope” to see you there!
