May 2016 newsletter

Family of Hope House Church                                        May 2016

Our Vision Statement (who we are)

 “God calls us to be followers of Jesus Christ, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, to grow as a community of grace, joy and peace, so  that God’s healing and hope may flow though us to the world.”

Proposed Mission Statement (what we are about)

We meet weekly to seek guidance from Scripture and to find encouragement and wisdom from our worship and fellowship together in order to more effectively bring about God’s shalom and healing in our church family and in the communities in which we live and work.”

Our Personal Covenant Statement (what we each commit ourselves to)

I support the goals, vision and faith of Family of Hope, will attend weekly services as regularly as I am able, and will use my gifts and offer my encouragement to this church family to the best of my ability. I invite other members to support me--and to confront me as needed--in being faithful to this commitment.”
