Dear People of Hope -

I don't know about you, but I love to win contests! There's something about it that just feels fun, celebratory, satisfying.  This January, Hope is hosting our first (ever?!) photo contest.  Send me any photos you have of life at Hope in 2022.  I'll collect and share them at the January 29 Congregational Meeting by zoom.  The "winning" photo will serve as the cover image for the printed annual report.  Scroll through your phone, sift through your files, email me a picture or two or 5.  I'm so curious to see what you've documented this year.

Then join us, Sunday January 29, 1:30pm by zoom (link below) to see all the photos and hear stories of ministry through the past year.

Peace of Christ, Pastor Julie
Monthly Social Gatherings
starting January 26, continuing all year

Saturday morning 5K
Sunday afternoon boat ride
Thursday evening visit to a museum
Friday night movie

Hope folks are beginning to gather for a series of monthly social gatherings.  These will be times when we can be together and just have fun.  They will be events where it is easy to invite friends or neighbors. These may be a mix of online or in-person events, with different people volunteering to "host" each one; this leads to natural variety and lots of fun.  If you’d like to plan one of these gatherings, contact Pastor Julie - or look for a sign-up sheet in the entryway at Hope..
Pastor Julie is hosting the first gathering: Thursday January 26, 10-11am, Breakfast at IKEA.  Join others for free parking, big sunny windows, delicious food and good conversation. 
Hope is Hiring

Hope's wonderful Administrative Assistant, Beth, has to resign from the position due to family needs.  We are grateful for Beth's 5+ years of faithful service and we pray for her transition.  Hope is now seeking a new Administrative Assistant.  Find the job description on Hope's website and share it with any people or networks who might be interested.

Beth's final day is January 31.
