HOPE (253)

HOPE (253)

In a little over two weeks, on August 13, 20,000 people from across the (253) area code will be gathered in the Tacoma Dome to hear a message of Hope. Out of those 20,000 people, many will not be believers in Jesus, and many of them will make a decision that night to begin a relationship with Him that will change their lives forever. Those people will be followed up by someone from a local church and invited to join a local body of believers that next weekend.

You have the opportunity to play your part in this great endeavor—to see hope brought to this region. Along with almost 150 other churches, we will be helping to make HOPE (253) a success by volunteering, inviting and attending. Will you be a part of it?

If you haven’t signed up to volunteer yet, it’s not too late! You have the opportunity to pray a prayer with someone that night as they accept Jesus into their lives, or you could be involved in greeting and welcoming people into the dome, or you could join the prayer team, of which I am a co-director. If you want to volunteer, sign up HERE and attend the final volunteer rally this Sunday  at 6:00 pm at Life Center, Tacoma.

If you want to attend, it is a free event, beginning at 6:00 pm on August 13, so make plans to be there. And please invite, invite, invite! People who would never normally step foot in a church, will come to the Tacoma Dome for a free concert. So invite your neighbors. Invite your co-workers. Invite your friends. Invite your family. Share a VIDEO from the Facebook page  Give those in your life the opportunity to hear a message of the hope of Jesus Christ.

Finally, pray that God would stir the hearts of the church to invite, the hearts of unbelievers to come, and would do a work of transformation on Sunday, August 13, that will change this region for years to come.
