Please send your submissions to Lisa Klym at lklym@hopelcs.ca.


Hope Prayer Community

The last Tuesday of each month from 7:30 – 8:30 pm is now dedicated to gathering in the chapel as a community to pray for each other, the ministry of our school, Hope church and our greater community.

We had a wonderful time last week in prayer with multiple languages and even children participating – it was marvelous to hear their little voices rise in prayer to our Lord.  Our prayers are an offering to God and all families of all languages are invited to attend.  Feel free to pray in your own language.  An outline of prayer points is provided to give you some structure. 

Anyone willing to lead us in a few songs of worship on March 29, please contact Lisa at lklym@hopelcs.ca.
