Links to Recordings; Midweek Meeting; MEN'S BREAKFAST; Memory Work [Hopewell This Week—2023.10.24 Hopewell Harbinger]

Hopewell Harbinger ▪ October 22–October 29, 2023

The worship booklet with Hopewell @Home devotionals is attached. They are also available online, at hpwl.org/hah on the day of the devotional. May the Lord glorify Himself as He conforms you and your family to Christ, and employs you in His service.

There is not a public recording of the nomination process for the diaconate, but hopefully the explanation on the attached sheet will be clear enough; feel free to use it to print your own deacon candidate recommendation form. Forms will be kept and replenished on the table in the hallway of the Fellowship Hall.

Please note the Monthly Men's Breakfast bleow.

Audio/Video/Transcript Links from recent public teaching and preaching
2023.10.18 Midweek Sermon [Romans 9:1–5, Grieving Sacrificially Over the Lost]. As grace conforms us increasingly to Christ, our grief over the lost—and specifically over lost relatives and lost Jews—increases.
2023.10.22 Morning Sermon [Matthew 3:17–4:11, The Son Who Fulfills All Righteousness]. Jesus is the great and true Adam, the great and true Israel, and the great and true David, Who Himself has obeyed righteously and perfectly as the perfect and forever humanity, the perfect and forever church, and the perfect and forever King.
2023.10.22 Evening Sermon [Leviticus 13–14, Salvation from This Body of Death]. Death is on us, in us, and all around us as sinners in a fallen world, but God provides atonement and cleansing that we may approach Him.
