A Brief History of HOPE

A vision to open a new church in Claymont, DE named HOPE Community Church began in February of 2008 when Bishop Peggy Johnson visited Atonement Church. Bishop Johnson recognized the growth, the changes that were occurring within the church, and posed the question, "Have you ever thought about opening another church?" Actually, Pastor John Hornberger (the lead pastor at Atonement UMC), Amy Peters (assistant pastor of Atonement UMC and now campus pastor of HOPE), and Mark Peters (husband of Amy Peters) had thought about that possibility. So Mark responded, "Yes, we have." From that day forward, HOPE Community church grew to become a reality that is now four years old.

 

PAstor Amy L Peters

“Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” 
Hebrews 11:6

JUNE FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITY!

MOVIE NIGHT – FAITH LIKE POTATOES

Worship June 29th @ 4.30pm to 5.30pm; Movie and Pizza!!! Breaking bread was one of the greatest gifts that Christ gave to His disciples. For us to be more like Jesus we must practice all that He did that made Him succeed. So this summer, let’s find a great ways to come together to fellowship with one another in Jesus’s name. This event is another great one for inviting a friend!

P.S. Faith Like Potatoes is a 2006 South African biographical drama film based on the 1998 book written by Angus Buchan, "Faith Like Potatoes." It’s a winner! You’ll love it!

 

 

ARE YOU READY FOR AN OUTDOOR FELLOWSHIP?

The outdoor fellowship is one of my most loved moments about summer and I can’t wait for you to join us this summer at our home, 1601 Brandywine Blvd. Wilmington DE 19809. Please save the date Sunday July 21st at 5pm. More details to come in HOPE’s bulletin. Let’s do s’mores on the fire pit!

 

 

LABOR DAY WEEKEND

Fellowship Sunday, September 1, at 12:30 pm to 2 pm. More details to follow, options are being discussed. Join the discussion. HOPE Community Church has celebrated Labor Day by resting and relaxing as a faith community. Christians labor not only in a career, at homes, etc. but so very often in the Church as well. Our focus this summer has been on fellowship, and the Body of Christ misses those who are absent. Seriously consider praying about our “missing sheep” and inviting them back into our fold. God needs you to be the minister of love that God has created you to be….Selah.

”Let us not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another...” Hebrews 10:25

 
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,  May these days following Pentecost be ones of great spiritual growth for us. God poured out God’s Divine Spirit on that Day of Pentecost in fulfillment of Jesus’ own prophecy, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said,  streams of living water will flow from within him. ” By this, Jesus meant the Holy Spirit.  This same Holy Spirit has been given to all people who believe in Christ Jesus. We receive(d) the Spirit by faith in Christ and we are filled with God’s Spirit as we choose to live life in the Spirit. We have the very same Spirit of God living in us! WE are born-again, empowered, and living for Jesus! Romans 8:5 (NIV), “Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.”  Let us continue to surrender daily to the presence of the Holy Spirit in us. Let us give control of our lives to the Spirit and experience new life, peace, and living-rightly for God, our Savior. So be it.
