The Hopewell community gathered at the Hopewell United Methodist Church on Aug. 16 to stand together against hate and injustice at a Community Peace Vigil sponsored by the Hopewell Council of Churches. It was an evening of prayer, song and a candlelight vigil and march through the borough. Attendees heard messages from Pastor Kate, leaders of other Hopewell Borough churches, and the mayor.
As we hunger and thirst for God, we must confront the barriers we build between one another, which can also be barriers to growing in our faith. In this message based on John Chapter 4, Pastor Kate Hillis recounts the story of the Samaritan woman who met Jesus at the well one day near Jacob’s mountain in Sychar, and how the conversation changed her life and her community.
The Cairn University Chorale presented a concert of sacred music, titled, “God Thou Art Love,” on Sunday February 21.
For January our theme is “Hope In A Hurting World.” That’s the title of a sermon series from our pastor, the Rev. Dr. Kenneth Robinson, which kicked off Jan. 10 with a message based on Joshua 10:12 titled “Hope Beyond Discouragement.” Upcoming messages from Pastor Robinson will focus on “Hope Amid Hurt” (Jan. 17), “Hope in Uncertain Times” (Jan. 24) and “Hope Amid Discord.”
