NEW SERMON SERIES
This Sunday we’ll begin a new series entitled, “Summer Break.” This four-week series looks at some misunderstandings of theology and challenges us to break the bad thinking before it breaks us. We will discuss commonly used phrases or assumptions that are not only unbiblical but turn people away from a welcoming relationship with Christ. Make plans to join us each Sunday in this series either in-person or online.
We are combining our efforts with CAYA, to provide 500 lunches a day during the summer to children in Paulding County who are in need. There are several ways you can help.
We will be collecting food for the program. This summer we are collecting individually packaged Sweet Snacks, Salty Snacks, Fruit Cups and Juice Pouches. Pick some up on your weekly grocery trip and bring it to the Hope Or you can make a monetary donation and we can do the shopping for you.
You can also sign up to pack and/or drive the lunches. If you want to help, please contact Caya to let them know when you would like to help (770-445-9303 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Look at your calendars and make plans to help SummerLunch a few days during the summer.
This is a great opportunity to share the love of Jesus throughout Paulding County. You can go to cayaministries.com for more information.
We've got all kinds of things planned for this summer at HSM.
- A weekly Bible & Brunch every Wednesday, beginning May 31 (except July 5). 10:15-11:30 AM at the Hiram Chick Fil-A. It's at just the right time to sleep in and still get breakfast or wait just a few minutes to grab lunch... or both! Bring your Bible/App. No signup required, just come and brunch with us!

CHURCH INFORMATION SESSION AND CONFERENCE
On Sunday, June 11 there will be a shortened service followed by a Q&A information session regarding the church conference (scheduled for 1pm on June 25). The session will provide information to help you discern whether Hope should remain with the United Methodist Church or disaffiliate.
On Sunday, June 25 at 1:00pm all full members of Hope Church are invited to attend and encouraged to participate in the Church Conference. This conference was called by, and will be presided over, by our District Superintendent, the Rev. Dr. Jessica Terrell. You must be present to make your vote count as there will be no proxy or absentee voting. The voting members must decide by a 2/3 supermajority to enter into a disaffiliation contract with the NGUMC. The District Superintendent will diligently check to make sure only full members are voting. The OneBoard Leadership Team is providing lunch so members who plan to attend the Church Conference will not need to leave and return.
If you have any questions, contact Pastor Mark (email@example.com)
