Bible Collection

We are collecting Bibles for a group called Bible Runners which collects used Bibles and makes them available to people who do not have a copy of the Scripture.  Bibles are given to people here at home and around the world.  There is a box in the entryway for placing your donations. Thank you for your support of this special project!

Spring Cleaning/Rummage Sale

If you are doing some spring cleaning and have items you would like to donate, please keep Hope’s rummage sale in mind.  Hope will be participating in the Land O’Lakes city-wide rummage sale on Saturday August 5th. Household items, seasonal decorations, tools, toys, games, outdoor activities, craft items, office supplies and many other items are appreciated (but no electronics, furniture or clothing).  A date for drop off of your items will be published as the event gets closer.  Please do not bring things to church yet. If you have any questions, please contact Jim or Vicky Holbrook at (906)544-2099.  Thank you and happy cleaning!

Weather Cancellations

Hope uses a robocall service to call members in the event of a cancellation due to bad weather or other issues. If you use a cell phone or have a blocking feature on your landline phone, please add the following number into your phone contacts so that the call doesn’t get treated as SPAM or a blocked number: 888-996-3623. Please note we are not able to include visitors in these calls. Cancellations are also posted on the home page of our website, on Channel 9 (WAOW)’s website, and on Hope’s Facebook page. Thank you!
Food for the flock

Food for the Flock - Volunteers Needed

A small gesture of Christian love can go a long way in telling a person or family that God loves and cares for them. It can also open doors for those who do not know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. To that end, Hope’s Outreach committee has started the new Food for the Flock ministry to provide a meal to a member of Hope or the community during a difficult time. The Outreach Committee is looking for volunteers who are willing to cook and deliver a meal on a rotational basis. There is a sign-up list on the bulletin board in the Narthex, or you may contact Melody Krugler at (832)731-3964 or via email at

Greeter Ministry Volunteers

We are looking for individuals/couples/ families who would willing to welcome worshipers as they enter our church building, answer any questions and make them feel welcome.  We ask that you be at your post by 9:05 AM.  We will provide some helps for you.  You will be scheduled at your convenience.  If interested, please talk with Melody Krugler or Pastor.  Thank you!

DVD Lending Library

Over the past several years, the congregation has purchased or received as gifts a variety of excellent Christian movies for children and adults.  We are making these DVD's available for our members to check out and use at home.  In an effort to keep track of these dvds/videos, we ask that when you select an item to borrow, you please fill out the card attached to it and place the card in the designated box on the library shelf.  We encourage you to keep them for only one week and then return them to the  Library “Return Basket.”  This system will hopefully help us to be good stewards in using these resources and being accountable for their whereabouts.  ENJOY!
