At Hope Church we love and enjoy the tradition of celebration in our city! Everyone from the city knows that the vast majority of the Mardi Gras festivities can be enjoyed with family, friends, kids and with the Church! So grab your kids, meetup with other Hope Church peeps and get in the celebration... catch beads, scream "throw me somethin mister!," laugh, eat, drink and do so in a way that shows you belong to Jesus.
Be intentional during this time. We want to encourage our Hope Communities to go to parades together, to enjoy our city together and to invite friends, co-workers, classmates, neighbors and family to come along for the fun. What a great time to build new friendships, to introduce people you know to others in the church and to invite people to worship with us or join you at your next Hope Community gathering or fellowship. Invite everybody, including your new friends, back to your house afterward to hang out, for a cookout or just go out to eat!
Church, lets celebrate Mardi Gras together and redeem the experience as we work to show the joy of Jesus and connect with people who need Christ in this city we love so much.
