Visit our Prayer Labyrinth
 
A prayer labyrinth is an ancient tool
which had been used by pilgrims for
generations.

A labyrinth is a vehicle of prayer.

A labyrinth is a metaphor for life with
all of its twists and turns, ups and
downs.

A prayer labyrinth is a symbol of a
life of walking with God.
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.
How to use the Prayer Labyrinth:

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 a
resounding YES. But many of us have had to overcome our own reasons for
not going. Do you have your reasons? Click Here to Learn More

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 Christ.
