Dear Hope Family,
This Sunday at Hope marks a great day of celebration and gratefulness for God’s provision in our congregation as we proceed with the official installation of Blair Whitworth to the office of Ruling Elder and Ethan Smith to the office of Associate Pastor. While both of these men were approved by our congregational vote back in January, during the worship service on Sunday morning, they will take vows to serve as shepherds in our midst, and we, the congregation, will also take vows both to receive their shepherding and to nurture them as elders at Hope. Please pray for Ethan and Blair and their families, for the joy and solemnity of their vows, and for our church to grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ under their shepherding.
Grace and peace,
