Dear Hope Chapel Family,
During a time of great hardship and persecution, the author of Hebrews wrote, “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:23-25
Brothers and sisters, let us hold fast to these words of encouragement. Let us take time this week to reflect on Christ’s faithfulness in our lives, and how to encourage others to do the same. Also, let us continue to rejoice that we have the opportunity to meet for church both in person and online now. Here are a few important updates and announcements for you this week: Join Us for Church Outdoors.
We will host our first outdoor service on Saturday
, August 22nd
. We will gather in the Hope Chapel parking lot adjacent to PCH located below the marquee. Bring your own lawn chair or blanket and Bible and wear your masks. Families with young children are welcome!
We have an 80-person

every week for the following Saturday’s service at Hope Outdoor Service
. Space is on a first come, first serve basis. If you can no longer attend a service, we ask that you please cancel

As some of you may know, churches in the South Bay have been a target for scams and hackers. Should you or anyone you know receive a suspicious letter, email, phone call or text message posing to be from a pastor or any of our leaders, please do not
respond and promptly alert us by calling our Church Office at 310-374-4673. Please be assured that none of our pastors, elders or ministry leaders will solicit funds or request you to purchase anything on behalf of Hope Chapel. Let us all be wise and discerning in these precarious times. Love and Respect Class to Begin Next Month.
This is a class tailored for married (or soon-to-be married) couples. Pastor Jared and his wife Christina will lead through the DVD series from the book, Love and Respect by Emerson Eggrichs, which is based on Ephesians 5:33. This series reveals the power of unconditional love and respect, and how husbands and wives can reap the benefits of marriage that God intended.
The class will be meeting in-person at the Blue’s residence in Manhattan Beach seated six feet apart in their backyard. Begins Thursday
, September 3rd – November 12th, 6-8pm
. To attend the class, please register at Love & Respect Fall 2020
. Please purchase one Love and Respect workbook per person during registration ($11 per workbook
). Please don't forget your mask! If you have any questions, please contact the Blue Family
