Your First Visit to Anchor of Hope Church?
Anchor of Hope Church is a center for personal spiritual development and growth, and a visitor-friendly environment where each person is welcomed.
Let’s suppose that after checking out our web site you decide to visit. Most likely your first contact is the morning worship service. You may have little or no experience with church worship. Or you may be very familiar with Christian worship. In either case you will feel comfortable at Anchor of Hope Church.
A typical morning goes like this: You arrive about 9:45am. You find your way through the building. Some visitors find the coffee and tea and make a new friend or two before worship begins. People with children are interested in our clean, attended nursery. They settle their children in the nursery. Other children will be in worship — the parents decide. A “cry room” is available for fussy babies and nursing moms. Younger children may play outside with their friends. You may sit quietly in the auditorium, or sanctuary, and wait for worship to begin. You may seat yourself anywhere you find comfortable. Or a greeter will help you find a seat if you prefer. By about 9:55am most people have found a seat in the sanctuary.
A bulletin with weekly news and schedule information is provided for everyone.
Each week a vital subject based on a Bible passage is presented to the congregation in the morning message known as a sermon. Topics vary a great deal from week to week, but you will find this list fairly typical:
- Insights into improving relationships and choices you have
- Healing those painful hurts from the past and moving forward in freedom
- What God’s purpose can do to give you new power
- Developing the kind of character God wants us to have
- Moving from personal neediness to confident generosity
You can be assured that our themes are always based on the Bible and always are consistent with the historic Christian faith.
