Pastor Mike’s Weekly E-News

Dear Hope Family!

BIG things are happening at HOPE this summer, and I want to make sure you – my faithful weekly email readers – are in the know …

New Summer Sermon Series: “Just What We Need”
July 4 – Sept.13

Our action-packed tour through the Gospel of Mark (“The Jesus Revolution”) concludes this weekend. I’m preaching at our Saturday night and Sunday morning services on “The Intersection of Church & State” (Mark 12:13-17), and Jeremy will do the same on Sunday night. The following weekend (July 4 & 5), we’ll turn the page and open a new sermon series on the Gospel of Lukeas we continue our year-long journey through the Gospels, learning how to apply the extremely practical and relevant teaching of Jesus into our daily lives.

Vacation Bible School: “Gettin’ Reel with Jesus!”
July 13-17 & 20-24

In just a few weeks, it will be time to pull back the curtain on Vacation Bible School at Lutheran Church of Hope! VBS is for kids age 3 – grade 6, and it’s the biggest Jesus party of the summer in Iowa! Register your kids online today, or sign-up to volunteer at one of our three sessions.

Taste of Hope
Saturday, July 25 (golf outing July 24)

Our mid-summer open house celebration caps off two weeks of VBS with free food, inflatable games for kids, make-and-take art, a talent show, black-light dodgeball, a 5k fun run, a BBQ cook-off, a 4-person golf scramble, and our Saturday come-as-you-are 5:00 pm service - there’s something for everyone! Invite your friends to come and get a taste of Hope!

Back to School Bash: All-Church Outdoor Worship & Picnic
Sunday, Aug. 23

It’s official! Mark your calendars! We’re having an all-church Back to School Bash on Sunday, Aug. 23. All five of our campuses will worship together in one place (for the first time in eight years) - a 10:00 am Outdoor Service at Waukee Stadium, followed by an all-church picnic at Centennial Park. More details to come, but want to let you know all about it now so you can save the date!

See you this weekend!

Peace,
Mike Housholder
