Join Us This Week
To Know Christ! To Make Christ Known!

Our Sunday Worship Service with Holy Communion begins at 9:30 each Sunday morning.
Sunday School for children age three through grade five. Children begin worship with their families and then leave after the children’s sermon for their classes.

WELCOME, PASTOR BEN SANDIN!
The Call Committee is thrilled to announce the results of the House of Prayer Congregational Meeting held on January 26. Following a motion duly made and seconded, the congregation voted overwhelmingly to extend the Call for Senior Pastor to Pastor Benjamin M. Sandin. Pastor Sandin, currently serving as Senior Pastor at a congregation in Michigan, has responded to this vote with gratitude and excitement for our future partnership. Please join the Call Committee, our Leadership, and the Staff in enthusiastically preparing to welcome Pastor Ben to House of Prayer. He will be arriving mid-March to begin his ministry with us.
Watch for more information on a farewell reception for our Interim Pastor Denny Wright and a welcoming and installation for Pastor Sandin.
Come On Everybody, Put Your Hands Together!
We pledge to DO GOD’S WORK WITH OUR HANDS at HOUSE OF PRAYER.
Throughout the month of March we will be talking about “doing God’s work with our hands.” It’s a fitting focus for HoP as we join our hands together to welcome a new senior pastor and build a new foundation for ministry. Please join us each Sunday for this exploration of faith and stewardship:
March 2 – Extending hands of welcome
March 9 – Folding hands in prayer
March 16 – Hands of service
March 23 – Using our hands to give financially
March 30 – Pledge Sunday

Loaves and Fishes Crew
On a cold January evening, a dedicated crew from House of Prayer prepared and served supper at Loaves and Fishes. Our next opportunities to serve will be the first Tuesdays in April and June. Watch for bulletin announcements and take advantage of another chance to help serve your neighbors.
60th Anniversary Celebration – October 27
Two hundred House of Prayer members and friends celebrated the church’s 60th anniversary with a special worship service followed by a catered brunch and entertainment. Read about HoP’s history here.
Gifts and Service Survey
If you didn’t get a chance to fill out the new “Gifts and Service” survey, you can download it here, print it out, check off the areas you are willing to help with, and return it to church by mail or leave it in the office, or in the collection plate. There are so many OPPORTUNITIES and so many NEEDS for our hands to do God’s work! Surely there is some way you can share your talents and serve our church and community.
