HOPE SUMMER NIGHTS

Join us on the second Wednesday of the month for worship and fellowship as a faith community!  We will gather for a meal starting at 6:00pm and worship at 7:00pm, all outside, weather permitting.  Each Hope Summer Night will have a different theme and focus.  This is a perfect opportunity to worship during the week if your summer travels take you out of town on the weekend, and in a more casual atmosphere, with time to enjoy the outdoors and fellowship with one another.  Invite your friends and neighbors to come along too!

  • June 12 - Freedom & Diversity in Christ Worship to celebrate Juneteenth and Pride Month
  • July 10 - “Created to Be” Youth Gathering-Themed Worship and Sendoff

FREEDOM & DIVERSITY IN CHRIST

Wednesday, June 12

6pm Fellowship Meal & Service Project

7pm Worship

(Outdoor - weather permitting)


Join us for our first of three Hope Summer Nights for food, fellowship, service, and worship!  We will gather starting at 6pm for a meal and fellowship, followed by worship at 7pm with a special emphasis on Freedom & Diversity in Christ, honoring both Pride Month and Juneteenth.  All activities, including worship, will be outside at our Portico; we will have chairs available, but all are welcome to bring their own lawn/camping chairs, blankets etc.  We will also have a “Kid-Zone” for our younger members to enjoy and play while they worship.  There is no cost for the meal, but free-will donations may be given to cover the cost of the meal, as well as regular offering in worship.  

 

Lighthouse Service Project

As we uplift freedom and diversity this month, we also take time to recognize and care for all in our community by providing support to Lighthouse, an organization that provides food and housing assistance in Oakland County.  During the mealtime from 6-7pm, we will be assembling Welcome Bags, comprised of various personal and hygiene items, for Lighthouse to share with visitors and residents at their shelter. 

 

Lighthouse Special Offering

In addition to assembling Welcome Bags, we will also collect a special offering for Lighthouse leading up to and at worship that evening, to answer Lighthouse’s “Summer Hunger” appeal for extra funding needed to help stock their food pantries, when children are out of school and families are in greater need of food.  Donations to this special offering can be made through June 12 here.  We will have a special blessing for the Welcome Bags and Special Offering to Lighthouse during worship on June 12.

Invite your friends and neighbors, and please join us for this special evening!  Future Hope Summer Nights will occur on July 10 and Aug 14.  Watch for more information coming soon!
