Beacon of Hope is a very diverse group of people that enjoy all types of music - which we consider a good thing. Songs on Sunday morning may consist of contemporary, traditional, and scripture songs. Our heart is to worship and glorify Him in Music and Actions as we worshipo Him corporately. During this time you are welcome to participate in whatever way you prefer, whether by standing, joining in singing, or by sitting and reflecting. Please be comfortable and follow the Spirit's leading as you worship.
Following The Service
Each week we present the opportunity to worship through tithes & offerings. We encourage you to give ONLY as you feel led by God and not under any obligation, reluctance, or compulsion. "God Loves A Cheerful Giver" 2 Corinthians 9:7
Every Sunday we take a few moments to share about recent and upcoming events. Take note of any events or activities you may be interested in, and if you have questions please ask an usher or greeter who can lead you to the right contact for the event.
Every week our Pastor has a message to share with the congregation. The bulletin contains notes and fill-in-the blanks to help guide you throught the sermon. Each message is thoughtfully and prayerfully prepared by our Pastor throughout the week, and we hope it will result in challenging you to discover God and His love for you in your life.
As the service concludes you are welcome to stay and visit with those around you or leave for the rest of your day's activites. If you have a need you may pray with those at the front of the worship center. On your way out, we encourage you to tintroduce yourself to the Pastor and staff. We love to make time for our guests.
