Aloha Hope Chapel! It was so great to see you all tune into our weekend services. We hope that you enjoyed worshiping with your church family! We really miss being with you in person, but we’re so glad that technology allows us to gather together even now. When this is over, we’ll all be back together and we’ll be more appreciative than ever for the little things – the hugs, the coffee, the smiles.
We’re back again with another encouraging devotional from one of our staff members. Wes Thomasson leads our Tweens- he took some time this week to record this devotional for you all, be sure to check it out!
