Welcome to Living Hope CRC

From Pastor Mark...

“We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.”
Romans 5:3-5
We live in a world that is always in need of hope. In the midst of a pandemic and other anxieties that invade our lives, we have Hope in the God who has granted us salvation in Jesus Christ. As it says in Romans 5, “God has poured out his love into our hearts”.
These words can be applied to our study of the life and times of Samson. In our reading this week, Samson pours out his heart to the wrong person and he will pay for it. However, this story is not hopeless because it leads us to the gospel of grace. This is the word of encouragement that we need to hear and be reminded of in times such as these. We are not without hope because God has poured out his heart to us in Jesus Christ.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead."

The Ministry Board and Council of Living Hope have reviewed the rules concerning re-opening and will continue to monitor the situation as it develops. At this time, due to the high numbers of infection that we have experienced within our congregation and the restrictive measures that would need to be in place to re-open in a safe and responsible way, we believe that we are not yet in a

Let’s collectively bless our
