14 Jan Leadership by Example
Greetings and Happy New Year from Pastor Heckmann, Deaconess Sharon and DCE Carl. We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s Celebration. During our recent staff meeting, we decided one of our goals for the year would be to read through the Bible together, sharing thoughts about our readings and holding each other accountable in our daily journey. We also thought it would be awesome to share with you our thoughts. So each day, the daily reading will be posted and each of us will post a word or phrase from each reading that spoke to us. This link will also be posted on the Facebook page. If you would like to join us by posting your own thoughts or comments, please do so by posting them on Hope’s Facebook page.
