21 Days of Hope

By Ryan Dawson

We live in a world where we desperately need real hope.  The recent tragic events taking place in Barrhaven make this so apparent.  Thank you for praying for those impacted by this tragedy and for supporting the family through the Go Fund Me campaign.  

We all need hope but where do we go for hope?  Where do we go for the hope that infuses us with real joy, peace, and resolve in the face of such darkness?

Easter is all about hope.  The tomb is empty, and Jesus Christ is our living hope!  To celebrate this great hope, we launched 21 Days of Hope on Sunday.  For the 3 weeks leading up to Easter you can opt in to receive a hopeful text or email each day that will point you to the One who gives us true hope.  We believe God is going to use these messages to bring hope to you and hope through you! It’s going to stretch and grow your faith to new levels while helping others see the difference God can make in their life.

Here’s how the 21 Days of Hope works.  Text the word “Hope” to 613-909-8874 and you receive a prompt to sign up.  Once you sign up you will receive a daily email as well as a few text messages throughout the week. Each step along the way will include the following:

•Either a "Hope To You" or a "Hope Through You" action step.
•A theme: Devotional, Share Your Faith Story, Social, Generosity, Minister to others
•And a difficulty rating of that step

Each day the goals are designed to help you and others experience God’s love in some way. Some things will involve your social media or texting and others involve sharing your faith story. The idea over the next 3 weeks is to help your friends, family and acquaintances see how God is working in your life. We believe this will have a huge impact on our community as we all jump on board and do this together.

We are praying for you, and we know God will work in and through you as we look to Christ for living hope!

Blessings, Ryan
