Hope's Welcoming Statement

Hope strives to be a safe haven for God's unconditional love.  Every person is invited and encouraged to participate in all Hope activities and roles, including membership and leadership.  In this world most human conflict and separation are caused by differences, like ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, economic status, political positions and more. Hope embraces diversity and welcomes all who come through our doors, without exception.

Welcoming Hope

A welcoming message from Pastor Jay

To Those Who Grow in Hope,

We are finishing off the sacred year with a few stories from the Gospel

of Luke. I love the Gospel of Luke for many reasons, but one of the

reasons I love the most are his unique stories. Luke tells some stories

that are found nowhere else in the Bible. The Good Samaritan, the

Prodigal Son and Gabriel’s visit to Mary with her subsequent response

(the Magnificat) are all only in Luke.  But this story I remember learning

from a very VERY early age. It’s about a tree climber, and all good (and

bad) children love to climb trees. This guy wanted to see Jesus so much,

he had to have the “bird side view”, and it worked….only perhaps it worked

too well; Jesus saw him so clearly he made him into a Bible story!

This Sunday is Stewardship Sunday, and among many things in the service

that will greet you, I will seek to talk about the Gospel’s idea of steady,

healthy growth towards God. To help me with the message, I will have to

talk about the trees and those who seek to climb them to “grow” in height,

but there is also God’s desire for us to grow in depth; I’ll see you Sunday!


Pastor Jay
