Walk for HOPE
As many of you know, the primary church-wide fundraiser for the poor is the annual Walk for HOPE, coming up May 22. This year’s funds will be distributed to 10 food pantries and a donation for food insecure refugees in Ukraine.
Please pick up your fundraising packets in the lobby and help our neighbors locally and the many hurting people in Ukraine. Thank you!
The weekend of the walk will include many special events. Many dearly loved brothers and sisters from all over the US will be in town for the HOPE worldwide national board meeting: they will share good news and inspire our community outreach.
Pure in Heart Midweeks
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. —Matthew 5:8
Although we have made Jesus Lord, been washed in the blood of the lamb, and desire to be holy, holiness takes focus and effort in our walks with God and fellowship with one another. During pandemic isolation we have all been tested in holiness. Statistics indicate that drug addiction, porn addiction, domestic violence, depression, and many other ailments have plagued our world in increasing measures.
Thanks to the Freedom Ministry and the Eldership, we will devote two midweeks in April to holiness, specifically sexual purity. These midweeks will apply not only struggles with sexual sin but also to all idols and sins in our lives.
April 13: Pre-recorded midweek with brothers and sisters teaching and sharing how they have stayed pure in heart for God through fellowship and walking with Christ. We’ll zoom together as the Northwest and watch together:
