Attention all who like to sing! Please join us and sing with a one-time all church choir at our “from Offerings to Ministry Celebration Service.” The service is on Sunday, November 20 at 9:30. All ages welcome!
Here are the details: Singers will meet in the Assembly room at 8:45 am on 11/20 to go over the anthem and communion anthem. See Bonnie Jean before or after any service between now and then if you want copies of the music in advance. If one wishes to get familiar with the songs, here are the YouTube links to both songs:
Romans 12: 6-8
We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us: prophecy, in proportion to faith; ministry in ministering; the teacher in teaching; the exhorter in exhortation; the giver in generosity; the leader in diligence; the compassionate in cheerfulness.
The act of giving an offering of money at church represents an acknowledgement of God’s blessings in our lives, and a commitment to the ministry of the congregation as part of our worship. Kind of like thinking about the song, “The Hokey Pokey.” The lyrics of the song tell us to put our right leg or left arm in a circle, shake it, then “turn yourself about.” While the song is a silly one, the last command is asking you to “Put your whole self in…” If we think of Christ’s worship, He asks that we offer our whole person to God. While all of us need some help with the thought and idea of offering ourselves, our time and talents to God, and how we can each play a part in God’s worship, there are many examples of this at Mount Hope.

The Hope Closet has helped dozens of children already this fall! Our inventory is constantly changing as we distribute new clothing to children in transition. Currently, we are especially in need of tennis shoes, winter coats, and hoodies. There is a bin in the Fireside Room for donations and your donations may be dropped off at any time during the week or on Sundays. THANK YOU to all who have helped to get this ministry off the ground! We are blessed to be a blessing!
