Reflections from Pastor Beth:
I want to thank everyone who was able to attend one of the Opening New Opportunities Home Gatherings! They were a wonderful time of sharing about the many ways in which Hope Ridge’s ministry is impacting lives, and how important it is that we continue to financially support the ministries here.
If you missed out, don’t worry- you can pick up a packet on Sunday morning with information…and as always- feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
Speaking of ministry…. did anyone else notice that Trunk or Treat was cold? But oh, was it WARM with over 240 kids welcomed, tons of toothbrushes and toothpaste collected for Hope Chest, pumpkins colored, and lots of Halloween ornaments decorated by fingerprint spiders.
Thank you to everyone who participated and who helped make Trunk or Treat a warm, welcoming place to invite others to be a part of the Hope Ridge Community!
I look forward to seeing you Sunday!
Blessings and peace,
