Use that time to invite them to also join you for worship the next Sunday! Click the image above to learn more.

The Local Church & God's Global Mission
On Sunday we'll continue our Global Missions mini-series. We're  learning how our church can engage in the global disciple making mission of God.  We've explored God's heart for the nations, how the early church engaged all peoples and how Hope Church should engage the nations. Throughout the series different Hope Church members share there experiences in God's global mission. This Sunday, January 24th we'll conclude our series hearing from IMB Missionaries we sent to West Africa several years ago.  Click the image above if you'd like to listen to this series online!
