Scriptures: Exodus 3:1-5 & Matthew 16:21-28
Then Jesus made it clear to his disciples that it was now necessary for him to go to Jerusalem, submit to an ordeal of suffering at the hands of the religious leaders, be killed, and then on the third day be raised up alive. Peter took him in hand, protesting, “Impossible, Master! That can never be!”
24 August 2014 - 42nd Anniversary Celebration Sunday
Spirit of Hope MCC celebrates its 42 years of ministry in worship through readings, music, testimony, and communion. We offer all glory and praise to God our Creator, Christ our Redeemer, and the Holy Spirit our Sustainer! Reginald Greene, one of our charter members, shares his testimony with us during this special worship service. Join us to celebrate!
The Board of Directors has re-launched the Spirit of Hope Illuminations fundraiser beginning Sunday, August 17.
Commitments gifts are available between $250 - $2500 and may be made monthly, annually, or in a "one time" gift. All gifts benefit the General Fund of Spirit of Hope.

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.")
