Celebration of Hope: Two Weeks Away
On March 30/31, Celebration of Hopekicks off with an opportunity for us to extend our gaze outward, to look beyond our own horizons and give our attention to the grand work God is doing to bring hope and restoration to the underprivileged and impoverished around the world.
"We all have the tendency to become caught up in the immediate concerns of our everyday lives," says Steve Gillen. "It's easy to focus on the work we have to do, the friends to see, and schedules to keep—but God invites us into something much bigger."
During Celebration of Hope 2019, our church will be encouraged to Go, Grow, and Give. You can GO and serve by packing seeds, joining a clean-up crew at a local school, or serving at an inner-city outreach event in partnership with Grace and Peace Church. You can GROW by exploring the Main Lobby to learn about the work of our global partners and by using the Celebration of Hope curriculum in your small group. And you can GIVE to support our global partners as they bring clean water, sanitation, food security, education, and leadership development to their communities.
Each weekend will feature teaching and stories centered on God's heart for bringing hope and restoration to poverty and injustice across the world. Mark your calendars and commit to going, growing, and giving during this Celebration on Hope!
