Our “Overflowing Hope” theme comes from Romans 15:13 where Paul says,
- “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
We believe God is calling some of our overflow to reach across the ocean to a place that has never had the Gospel proclaimed. We are doing this because Oak Hill wants to grow in our “Going Value.” This value is based on the fact that we want to reach beyond the walls of our church building. We actively want to commit our lives to bring our hope to the world.
With that in mind, we had an opportunity over the last few weeks to raise $3000 which would be matched through a special gift. This would mean we could give a check for $6000 to Dan Venberg to begin our connection to “our village” in Chad. As is so often the case – you stepped up and delivered. I am excited to tell you about it right now but instead I invite you to come on Sunday and learn more from Dan as well as hear about our Overflowing Hope Expansion fund.
GOING with You,
