A Letter to Hope: Kick-Off

What a great weekend of ministry and worship! It was awesome to see a very full room on Sunday morning- and even more awesome to consider the time and energy that went into an amazing kick-off Sunday!

-Not sure how many individuals, but we hand-addressed 5,000 letters
-Over 30 people of Hope labeled, stuffed, and stamped the 5,000 letters
-Prayer accompanied those letters.
-Sunday- over a dozen people came an hour and a half (or more) to Hope to set up and prepare for our Kick-Off.
-We had 134 in worship and over 150 people who stayed outside for the kick-off celebration.
-Seeds were planted as the Gospel was shared and the challenge to surrender our lives to Jesus and live out passionate worship on a daily basis.

As I went around and spoke with our guest and our regulars- there was a buzz and an excitement in the air and in the conversations about what God is doing at Hope Church. In sports, the word momentum is used a lot. And a the momentum in a game can change on a single play.

Hope- we were presented with our game changing play. The Kick-Off was an opportunity for us to celebrate, to invite, to worship God, and to connect with our neighbors. We need to keep the momentum going. Who are you praying for this week that God can use you to impact? Who can you invite to church that may be looking for a church- or just looking for God? How is God going to use you in a powerful way? How are you living out passionate worship in your daily life?

It’s Monday (as I write) and I cannot wait for Sunday! I’m excited for what God is going to do in my life and in yours! I’m praying for you- and for Hope, that we might encounter God in powerful ways!
