We will touch base on issues regarding schedule/priority, work/money, relationships with others, and lastly surrendering to God.
- Lobby Area – Min. Greg Woo – Reflection Group
We, at Hope, are excited to start a new weekly Sunday post-service gathering. This “Reflection Group” is designed to invite new comers, seekers, current members, and old friends to gather and share life. We can talk about the sermon you just heard, events that are happening around the world that challenges your understanding, or
simply circumstances you are going through that you need someone to talk to. (Hebrews 10:24-25) And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
