How to use the Prayer Labyrinth:

Using a prayer labyrinth allows you to employ all of your senses while you pray
reinforcing in a physical way the reality that there is only one center in life and that is
in God.

1. What would you like to pray for today?

2. At the entrance, be still for a moment and ask God to walk with you.

3. Enter, follow the path, move at your own pace. Notice what is happening
around you and make it part of your prayer.

4. At the center, rest in Christ’s loving presence. Reflect on what has happened so far
on your prayer walk.

5. When you are ready, take the pathway back out. Continue your prayer, asking God
to incorporate what He has been showing you into your life and service of others.

6. When you reach the threshold, before you leave, thank God for whatever has
happened during your prayer experience.

7. Afterwards, reflect on your prayer walk.


Why Go To Church?

Every Sunday, many of us go to church while many others are sleeping or engaged in
other weekend activities. After a week of work and chores, should we spend part of
our short weekend in church?

For those of us that spend that hour each Sunday in church, the answer is yes.

But many of us have had to overcome our own reasons for not going.

Do you have your reasons?

Rector's Message:
Welcome to Hope!
Hope is a joy-filled church where every person can come to find rest from the hectic pace of
life and ref­uge from life's storms. Hope is a place where you can be filled when you are
empty, fed when you are hungry. It is a place to be renewed spiritually, physically, and
emotionally through authentic rela­tionships with regular people who are faithful and
passionate about giving to others what has been given to them; the grace of our Lord Jesus
