Dear Friends and Family (Ohana):
David was humble, but not passive in praying to the Lord. David was crushed, yet desperately bold in his “asks” of God (that’s what “supplication” means). “Hear my prayer, O Lord, give ear to my supplications! In Your faithfulness answer me, and in Your righteousness.” (Psalm 143:1 NKJ). Put it another way, David’s prayer was unscripted; and he GOT REAL with God through prayer.
Remember, the ABSENCE of prayer is a testimony of YOUR ABILITY. The PRESENCE of prayer is a testimony of GOD’S ABILITY. Keep a humble heart, but pray boldly like David – “Hear my prayer, O Lord, give ear to my supplications (my asks)…”. GOD IS ABLE when you and I are not.
Drink in God’s Spirit, and get your soul refreshed as Pastor JONATHAN speaks on “UNCOVERING FAITH & FRIENDS” at our WEDNESDAY NIGHT SERVICE this week!
Then, on SUNDAY, our thunder speaker - PASTOR BAM empowers us with a spiritual, yet practical message titled “EAT & EXERCISE!” Let’s keep reaching out, and inviting people closer to Jesus!
We now have a limited supply of SPANISH “JOURNALS” for $12 purchase at our RESOURCE CENTER! We’re also working on getting more Spanish speaking resource materials, so stay tuned!
Our teams are preparing for our 15 YEAR ANNIVERSARY celebration – COMING, SEPTEMBER 23RD! Start praying on who you can invite!
Architectural Plans for our RESTROOM EXPANSION project is still with the City for their review and approval. Meanwhile, in preparation for the CONTRUCTION PHASE, our GOAL is to raise $50,000 to pay for the construction, as well as a few unforeseen cost overages we incurred during the architectural development phase. We are also hoping that this amount will provide us with some financial margins to cover any unforeseen items that may come up during construction.
We are praying and believing that we can complete this project by mid-October 2018! If you want to be a part, and help make this happen, Please make checks payable to: New Hope Las Vegas. On the memo line write: “ADVANCE”; OR you can give through our APP (scroll to “Advance”).
Please note: Monies collected, but not used for the restroom expansion will be used to expand, and advance other areas of our church facility. We are a growing church, and that’s a God thing! Thank you church family, and friends of New Hope Las Vegas for your continued prayers and support! We could not be celebrating 15 Years without you! Our best is still to come!
