Hopeful Story, July 22, 2018

  Last week’s Hopeful Story, as written by Kim, and inspired by Dylan’s message on July 8 is indicative of what happens in the kingdom of God that we participate in. But let’s look a little closer and broader here at Hope Fellowship.
  Most of you know the story of how I came to become the pastor here at Hope. Most of us know the back-story to Brian’s acceptance to become our second pastor.  Some of you know the behind the scenes promptings for Nicole to become our Worship Director. Lots of you know the Lord’s promptings for Dylan not only to become our Connections Director, but more so to pursue Seminary training to become a full fledged pastor. Deanna, our newest staff person as the Children’s Director, compliments well the ministry staff here at Hope.
  And then there is the faithfulness of Chris, Ron & Linda, and the almost twenty years of dedicated service that Evelyn brings to the church.
  Do you see where this is going? Yes, The Lord has his hands in all the lives of his children, and causes them to be and to do exactly what he wants for his glory and honour. It is his plans! It is his good will that all things come together – just like the staff members of Hope Fellowship. Our Lord has caused each and every member of our personnel to be here at Hope for such a time as this. So not only is Kim’s story, prompted by Dylan’s message, indicative of what God is doing in our midst, but more so it is inspirational to know that we are in His hands.
 And that gives us hope – for he knows the plans he has for us, to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future. (Jer.29:11)
