Dear Hope Chapel Family, Romans 8:28 ESV And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good for those who are called according to His purpose.
If there was ever a time in recent history to place this verse on our refrigerators or computer screens, it’s now. Just when we think things can’t get any worse, the news proves us wrong. Thank goodness we don’t put our faith in the ways of the world or the power of kings (or presidents, governors or civic leaders).
What we do rely on is God’s Word which always proves faithful. Therefore, brothers and sisters, let us open our Bibles, get on our knees and call out to God in reverence and faith trusting that He is working everything
for our good because we love Him, are called by Him and know He has a greater purpose for the things we’re going through today. Here are just a few things you’ll need to know this week: Fraud Alert.
Some of you may have received fraudulent text messages or emails posing as Pastor Zac asking you to respond. He did not send these.
Please do not
respond and contact the church immediately at 310-374-4673. Please be assured that we are working with an experienced team to get to the bottom of this and put a stop to the false communications. In the future, should you receive any suspicious emails or text messages posing to be one of our pastors, elders or ministry leaders, please alert us immediately. It is better to be safe than sorry. We live in challenging times and are asking that you scrutinize everything you receive before responding. Thank You for Your Ongoing Partnership.
We would also like to thank all of you – our faithful givers – for your ongoing tithes and contributions. Our income has stayed nearly consistent and on budget. And, despite the current restrictions to meet and fellowship in person, we are still hosting our weekly church services via livestream and conducting much ministry including Pastoral care, Hope in Action, Men’s and Women’s Ministry, Youth Ministry, Children’s Ministry and global missions and missionary support. Thank you for your continued partnership in Kingdom work! Pastor Zac Podcast Interview Series.
Ever wanted an inside view of the history of Hope Chapel, our vision, and philosophy as well as the effect of God’s grace in multiplying what started out in a humble community center in Manhattan Beach? You will want to listen to this series of three podcast interviews where Ralph Moore (Hope Chapel’s founding Pastor), interviews Pastor Zac who took over the role of Senior Pastor after Ralph left in 1983.
