“In the midst of our diversity, Spirit of Hope MCC celebrates God’s love and acceptance as we share God’s word with each other, the community, and the world!"
Mission Statement - Spirit of Hope MCC
17 August 2014 - "The River of God"
Scriptures: Joshua 1:1-9 & Ezekiel 47:1-12
God used the life and leadership of Moses from birth as a slave to leading the Hebrew people to the boundary of the Promised Land and yet it was Joshua, Moses' assistant who led them across the river and into the land of promise. From Vic & Carrie Adams through Revs. John Barbone & Kurt Krieger, many Pastors led us this far. Yet, our story is not over with the changing of pastoral leaders. We are called to step into the river once again and know that God is our true source, our constant provider, and the One who ultimately guides our faith journey forward.
10 August 2014 - "Wade In The Water"
Scriptures: Exodus 13:17-22; 14:21-22 & Matthew 14:22-33
When we follow and obey the call of God, God will supply what is needed even if that seems beyond our human ability or comprehension. As the lyrics of the song say, "God will make a way when there seems to be no way." Let us stand on the foundation of all that God has supplied in the past to believe that same God will make a way for us today.
MCC Mega Summit - 30 October - 1 November 2014
Spirit of Hope MCC is honored to be the host for this year's MCC Mega Summit.
The workshops being offered are valuable in strengthening our local churches. You have the opportunity to bring back practical tools and resources that will help move your church forward. If you keep doing things the same way, you are bound to get the same results.
There will be multiple learning opportunities in one location for a very reasonable cost presented by four excellent facilitators: Rev. Elder Dr. Mona West, Rev. Elder Ken Martin, Rev. Elder Arlene Ackerman, and Rev. Tony Freeman.
Stewardship Summit: Learn how to help your congregation grow spiritually and increase your capacity to support the ministries of your church. Our local church ministries are too important to go underfunded. An investment in stewardship is an investment in people and your mission that will bring rewards for years to come.
Programming Summit: How are you helping your congregation to grow spiritually beyond worship? What opportunities do you have for spiritually diverse people to grow and connect with one another? Providing these types of opportunities in your church is essential to sustaining growth and stopping the "revolving door." (Programming will be offered for all churches, not just "program-size.")
