I'm sure you've heard by now that Hope Church is moving! We've been meeting in a dance studio for the last 2 1/2 years and in August we are moving into a church building on West Esplanade Ave in Metairie.
August will be a VERY exciting and busy month for our church. Here is the schedule:
After worship on August 9th everyone involved in Hospitality Ministry will meet over at the new building to learn how Sunday morning hospitality will look in the new property. We're encouraging everyone to quickly grab something to eat and then meet over there at 1pm. If you want to volunteer in Hospitality Ministry sign up HERE.
SUNDAY, AUGUST 16
Our last Sunday in the dance studio is August 16th. After the service is over that Sunday we will load all of our things into a moving truck and take it to the new property. We'll have pizza at the property before we unload our stuff and do a little organizing. We won't be able to get everything done that day because there will still be small renovation jobs being finished around the building that week but we'll do everything we can. Our staff and anyone else who wants to help organize the week of the 16th-22nd is more than welcome!
SUNDAY, AUGUST 23
On August 23 we'll gather for the first time at the new property. That Sunday we will hold a prayer service in the new property seeking God's blessing and praying for our city and church. Anyone is welcome that Sunday but it is not our GRAND OPENING. It is more of a "run through" Sunday to make sure the sound system is working and to work the bugs out of our Hospitality & HopeKIDS plans.
August 23rd will also be the week we kick off our NEW SUNDAY MORNING SCHEDULE.
SUNDAY, AUGUST 30
The 30th of August is our GRAND OPENING. We'll be doing it up big! This is the week to invite everyone! After worship we'll do a big meal with our faith family and guests to celebrate! We're asking people in our church to purchase & prepare a pan of lasagna. (Sign Up)
