Under the Sun:
Lessons from the Life
& Writings of Solomon
Sunday Mornings, 10:00 AM
Solomon -- Arguably the wisest man who has ever lived, and a man literally known as "Peace" and "God's Favored." His life's story, his gathered collection of wisdom in Proverbs, his startling passionate poetry in the Song of Songs, and his reflections on a life well-lived in Ecclesiastes, form the basis of our summer study in the Bible.
Friday, July 31, 5:00 & 8:00 PM

Incorporation Q&A and Vote
Q&A Meeting: Sunday, July 26, 11:45 AM
Q&A Meeting: Monday, August 3, 7:00 PM
Business Meeting: Monday, August 10, 7:00 PM
In anticipation of continued growth and as we consider future facilities for our church, Hope has become an incorporated church according to the provisions of the Commonwealth of Virginia. As part of this process, we have revised our Governing Documents into a new Constitution & Bylaws. These documents are now available for review by contacting the church office.
We will host two "Q&A" meetings to discuss the proposed changes, explain the process further, and answer any questions about the implications of incorporation. These meetings will serve as the formal discussion of our membership prior to voting to approve the new Constitution & Bylaws.
Then, on August 10, our members will vote on the proposed documents. It is very important that all of our members are in attendance; please make this a priority in your schedule. This decision will mark the beginning of a new chapter for Hope as we step forward in faith toward the opportunties God is sharing with us.
Sundays, 6:30 to 8:00 PM
Alpha is an opportunity to discover the foundations of the Christian faith. What do we believe? And why do we believe it? It's a no-pressure, no-expectations environment to explore, ask tough questions, and discover what brings us together at Hope. Space is limited! For more information, contact Frankie Stamps.
