HOPE HAPPENINGS...          

Hope en Fuego! ~ July 21

Join us as Hope goes to see the Chicago Fire play Toronto FC on Saturday, July 21 at 6:00 p.m. Join us for international professional soccer. There is not a bad seat at Toyota Park, tickets will be something like $22, and we’ll buy a block so that we’re mostly sitting together. There could be some pre-game tailgating going on…. Please sign up at the Kiosk in Fellowship Hall by the end of May. This is open to all ages and families are encouraged to join us. It’s en fuego! Questions? Talk to Jason van den Brink or Adam Zylstra.

Sunday Night Book Club ~ August 5

Small Great Things is a gripping novel written by Jodi Picoult and is the selection for the next book club meeting on July 8 at 6 p.m. Ruth, a Black nurse, is forbidden from treating the baby of white supremacists. When the baby goes into cardiac arrest, Ruth hesitates before giving the baby CPR, leading to a devastating outcome, and a legal battle against the baby’s parents. The novel explores not only overt racism, but the more subtle ways prejudice shapes relationships and worldview.

Trades Fair ~ August 12

Fair Trade coffee, tea, chocolate and more will be available after worship on Sunday, August 12.


The women of Hope are invited to join some of the women from Hope’s Mom’s group for Zumba. We meet a variety of different times: usually Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings in the Activity Room. The cost is minimal. Contact Becky Carlson for more details and the current schedule.

Jump Up and Shout it! ~ CD Available

“Jump Up and Shout it! Marjie Coleman and the Children of Hope Church.” All of the songs are originals by Marjie. Side A is delightful VBS songs sung by VBS kids. Side B is beautiful solos by Marjie. Pick up a copy today!
