Dear Point Hope Family,

I am jotting this note from the hospital and I just want to thank you all for all of your prayers for my mom who had hip surgery today. I pray that you will continue to keep everyone in our congregation in your prayers and that you will be intentional about reaching out to people that you know who are struggling and unable to be with us. I hear all of the time how thankful our members are for your kind notes. Some who haven’t been able to join us recently include Miriam Sanders, Peter Steketee and Tony Adams. I know these folks would love to hear from you. If you would like their addresses so that you are able to reach out, please email

I want to thank the Trustees and their spouses, and the Aesthetics Task Force and their spouses for all of the time and energy they have put into all that is happening in our building. WOW. God is blessing us and bringing new people all the time. I am looking forward to joining several new families this weekend!

I want to invite you to hear the sermon EARLY with me at 9:30 a.m. THIS SUNDAY. I will be sharing the sermon in an informal way in the sanctuary so that so many amazing teachers can leave and go be with our kids during our 10:30 a.m. service but still hear a LIVE sermon. We are in the last sermon in our Sermon Series SHAPE and I am excited to talk about how all of our experiences shape us into who God wants us to be. We will be looking at the life of the Apostle Paul to discuss.

I can’t wait to see you Sunday.

Many Blessings, Pastor Elizabeth
