Second Parish Presbyterian Church in Portland is planning a missions conference for November 1-3, Friday – Sunday, and inviting Living Hope to attend one or more of the scheduled events. The Friday evening event is their Harvest Supper, with Tony Curto as the speaker. On Saturday morning a number of more local people and organizations, including Greater Portland Christian School, will have tables out detailing their work, followed by a fellowship lunch. Tony Curto will preach on Sunday morning and do a presentation during Sunday school. More details to follow.
Sunday school classes for all ages will resume on Sunday, September 8, at 10 AM.
When parking here at Living Hope, we want to be good neighbors. There are spaces in the parking lot behind the church building, and parking is available on the grassy center strip between our driveway, closest to the church building, and our neighbor’s driveway, but please do not encroach on our neighbor’s driveway. We realize that parking spaces are limited here at the church, so please be mindful of this as you park. There also are some on-street spaces on Westminster Avenue, between Uncle Tom’s Market and the Sweet Angel Thai restaurant.
We hope to resume our midweek Bible Study soon and are considering offering a study in Brunswick, at the church, as well as in Augusta. Please speak to Pastor Gordon Cook if you are interested in attending one of these studies.
We will have our next First Sunday Fellowship lunch on Sunday, November 3. Bring something to share, if you wish, and plan to join us for a time of good food and fellowship! There always is plenty of food!
We share driveways and parking lots with our neighbors, and, especially now that the weather is warming up, children may be in and out of the church building, as well as adjacent buildings. Please drive slowly and carefully in the parking lot and in all areas near the church. We want everyone to be safe! Thanks!
