The Worship and Music Committee would like to thank everyone for making our Homecoming Sunday celebration such a wonderful day!! It was truly a special day of fellowship and sharing!
It was so nice to welcome Pastor John Kerr back to Good Hope as our guest speaker. His message, “A Portrait of Good Hope”, was so heartfelt and sharing memories was a special time. W We are so blessed to have such a wonderful program of music that is dedicated to singing and playing praises to God and inspiring our congregation.      Thank you to all the music staff, Senior Choir, Praise Choir, Youth Choir and Bell Choirs for all the beautiful music.

Th Thank you to the Decorating Committee for the beautiful decorations that make our church so warm and inviting. ~Thank you to KFC, Galion , for the delicious dinner and thank you to everyone who donated a delicious dessert.
    It is always exciting to see the unique “Themed Baskets” our members make for the auction and the many businesses that donate gift cards and products to support our auction fundraiser.     A special thank you goes to all of you who so generously and lovingly purchased these items. This year, our Organ Repair Auction Fundraiser totaled more than $4,000.00. Your kindness in purchasing will complete the first series of repairs and one-half of the second series of repairs. Good Hope family, you are amazing !!!

  We would also like to thank our 80 and over members for their strong faith, dedication and direction that has kept Good Hope alive. You are truly an inspiration to all of us.     We are so very blessed for the fellowship and love that we share with one another.
Thank you so much to all of you for making our Homecoming Sunday a wonderful event!
