Dear Hope Ridge Church Family,
This Sunday, we launch our “Bring It!” Series. We could not be more excited about what God wants to do in us over the next few weeks. The series was born out a real sense that now, more than ever, is the moment for the church to stand up and be counted… and we know that just saying that possibly makes you feel exhausted. It has been an incredibly difficult season in our world and many of us are feeling completely depleted, worn out, broken or just plain frazzled. In these moments, we can know however, that the strength to be purposeful people, to make a difference and to live out our calling in the world does not come from us. YOU have an irreplaceable role to play in the Kingdom of God, right here and now. By the grace and power of God, we are all called to BRING IT! We are called to step out in faith and to bring what we have – even when we don’t feel that it is significant…. perhaps especially then – and trust that God can and will do exceedingly, above all we can ask or imagine (Eph 3:20-21).
Will it be easy. No.
Will it be worth it. Eternity-shapingly, yes!
We hope you will join us in person or online over the next few weeks as we journey through this series together.
With great expectation,
Crae, Deline and the Hope Ridge Team
