ANNOUNCEMENTS

Reminder

Please do not have any food or drink other than water in the sanctuary before, during or after the service. Thank you for your cooperation in this.


Hope Prays

A house of prayer is a house that sees their need for prayer and comes alongside each other in prayer. As Elders, it is a privilege and joy for us to pray for you. In lieu of our Connection Cards, please be sure to submit your prayer requests and praise reports via the “Hope Prays” link on our website; which can be found here.


Youth Fall Retreat

This year we will be hosting our very first Hope Youth Fall Retreat. The goal of this retreat is to help our students grow in relationship with the Lord and with one another. We do this by giving our students a set-apart time to fully engage with the Word of God, connect in their small groups and grow together through fellowship. Our hope and prayer is that students will come home…

i) PASSIONATE: In their love for Jesus and their neighbour (Matthew 22:37-29)
ii) PRIORITIZED: In seeking first God’s kingdom through the disciplines of prayer, God’s Word, and a life of worship (Eph. 4:15-16)
iii) PREPARED: To live on mission in making disciples (Matt. 28:18-20)

This event will take place from Friday October 4th to Sunday October 6th. Please register at https://hopeottawa.ca/youth. Registration deadline is September 15, 2024.
