Food Pantry Donations

Community of Hope collects peanut butter each month to be donated to those in need. Living Word Outreach is a food pantry ministry that Hope has been supporting for several years. This month as the end of the school year approaches, we're collecting breakfast cereal in addition to peanut butter. Please place your donations on the shelves in the outer lobby. Thank you in advance for your support of this important ministry!    


Tea with Tiffany

Join the Women of Hope as they host "Tea with Tiffany" on Saturday, June 17 at 3:00pm! Tiffany Kaye Chartier is a Christian author and her two latest novels are: "H.E.R.O. Faith: A discovery of authentic faith for the courageous young lady" and "Bad Disciples: The Pie Night Chronicles". Welcome Tiffany and enjoy some tea as she shares her latest novels for teens and women. Signed books will be on sale for $10 with $3 of the sale being donated to the Women of Hope to support their outreach ministries. 


Bunco Night

Come join in the fun and camaraderie at the Women of Hope Bunco night at 7:00pm on Friday, June 9  at the home of Manjula Phelps (309 Londonderry Lane, Mansfield)! We will engage in an exciting game of Bunco, enjoy light refreshments (bring a snack if you'd like to!), and prizes will be awarded. A $5 participation fee will be collected at the door. This will cover the cost of prizes, and any extra money will help us put on future Women of Hope events.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EXTEND THIS INVITATION TO OTHERS!


Vacation Bible School 2017

Bring your kids on Monday, June 12 through Friday, June 16 from 6:15pm to 8:30pm each evening for an exciting  Rainforest VBS, based on five Parables of Jesus that will change a child's life! SonQuest Rainforest VBS transports young minds into a vivid rainforest environment of jungle sounds, sights and smells, where they'll dig into the Bible and meet Jesus. To register your child you can go HERE or pick up a registration form at the VBS table in the lobby on Sunday. You can also sign-up to volunteer at the VBS table on Sunday. We need help in the following areas:  decorating, preparing food, crafts, games and teaching. Questions or to volunteer, contact Molly Fetty or Carolyn Smitherman.


Noah Study

There is still time to join! The Life of Noah Bible study communicates the well-known children's story of Noah with teaching by Chris Seay. Powerful lessons, dramatic video clips and excellent teaching, uncovers the prominent themes of Noah's challenge to stand up for God in a world full of sin and trust God with the task of building the ark no matter how impossible it seemed. Present-day hurricanes and tsunamis provide a modern-day glimpse into the despair caused by the flood, yet God in His faithfulness rescues us from the storms of life.
 
This study is facilitated by Pastor Jay. This small group will meet from 3:30 to 4:30pm in the Worship Center on the following Sundays: May 21, June 4, & June 25. Please join us for this exciting study!


Service Project

The “Women of Hope” will lead us in our 2nd qtr. service project this Sunday, May 21. By raising funds through the “Bountiful Bazaar”, the Women of Hope were able to purchase Bibles for the Sherwin’s ministry in Cape Town, South Africa. Michael & Allison Sherwin are missionaries working in South Africa to empower the locals who are discovering Jesus, to lead and transform their communities. This Sunday, May 21 between the 9:30am & 11:00am Gatherings, some of us will place gift book plates in the Bibles while other will write notes of encouragement and scripture to be delivered along with the Bibles to South Africa. Please keep the Sherwins in your prayers.

We will be recognizing our Community of Hope's 2017 graduating seniors on Sunday, June 4. If you are a graduating senior from high school or college, please submit (1) photo by this Sunday, May 21 to be shown in the June 4 services. Send a digital photo or we can scan it and return to you. Please also indicate from what high school or college you are graduating. For questions or to email your photos, contact Sean Cawthon
