Get ready to be a part of an exciting long weekend of serving and growing with our congregation and our community neighbors! SON offers many ways to get involved, from working on someone's home or yard, to helping in Vacation Bible School and field trips for children, to leading worship and devotions/prayer, to making and serving food for all. This event runs from July 22-26, 2020 with different activities depending on the day, and there is room for you, however you are able to participate! Click here to get signed up!
Ash Wednesday Dinner and Worship at Hope Church: Wednesday, February 26, 6pm Dinner and 7pm Worship. To begin the season of Lent, Hope Church is hosting Maple Avenue Ministries, Holland UCC, and First UMC for an Ash Wednesday shared meal and worship.
If you wish to attend the 6pm dinner in the Hope Church Commons, please click here by February 23 and indicate how many are coming, so that Hope Church can know how many to plan on for the meal. The 7pm worship service in the Hope Church sanctuary will include scripture, music, prayer and an invitation to receive the imposition of ashes. The imposition of ashes is an ancient symbol of repentance and blessing that calls us into this season of renewed faith and discipleship through the story of Jesus Christ.
Worship with us at First! Come as you are and hear of God's love for you!
- 8:30 a.m. Traditional (organ and traditional hymns)
- 10:45 a.m. Contemporary (the band plays)
Child care is available during both services! If you are new, find out more information here!
All are welcome here. For the love of God we really mean it, but if you are looking for the perfect church, we are NOT it. We are an imperfect group of people on a faith journey together. And, imperfect people of all ages, differing abilities, ethnicities, gender identities, income levels, races, and sexual orientations are welcome and fully included in the ever-widening circle of this faith community.
