The Ultimate Refill

Becoming an Empty Vessel

By Chelsey Knutowicz on January 30th, 2018

 A new season has come into each of our lives, for “the old has passed away”. At Living Hope Church we eagerly welcome all that the Lord has planned for our ministries in 2018. One of the ministries we are passionate about is our LHC Young Adult group. Along with our children and youth programs, our 18 to 30 somethings are actively pursuing a relationship with Jesus in the context of community.

Surviving Me

Loving Who We Are

By Pattie Chenger-Hagerty on November 20th, 2017

      Too many people think they know who they are based on their hobbies, efforts, connections, or report with others. They struggle to survive with their misguided or disillusioned image that they or the world has given them, never quite reaching the right standards or fulfilling the determined expectations. But the truth is, God made man in His likeness. Male and female He created them to reflect His image, an image of goodness, hope, and love.


A God Craving

Seeking the Father’s Glory

By Donna Johnson on October 19th, 2017

         Deep in the heart of every human is a longing to have relationship with the Creator. A desire to know Him and be known by Him. Most often this desire is mistaken for a restless emptiness and is therefore filled with whatever will satisfy us in the moment. When we recognize our need for God, and we begin to seek after Him we find that He is the only true satisfaction in this life.


Unrelenting Pursuit

A Love Unlike Any Other

By Gene Miller on September 18th, 2017

      Each of us have our own story of where we came from, and how we first heard about God. Sometimes it is in the environment of an understanding church congregation, or an authentic Christian home, but sometimes we meet God through a distorted lens that works to push us away from wanting to know Him more, or a negative encounter that causes us to run in the opposite direction of what we’ve just experienced. Through it all, God never gives up on us, but instead pursues us faithfully with His kindness and His grace.


Even When it Hurts

Waging War Against the Evil One

By Tanya Lombard on July 14th, 2017


               Perhaps you’ve heard it said before that there is a difference between head knowledge and heart knowledge. Knowing the Word of God and walking by faith, although connected in giving purpose to the Christian walk, are two very different things. It is generally easy for us to believe and receive the blessings of our Heavenly Father when all seems well in our lives and situation, but when trials come and we are tested by the brokenness of the world in which we live, our faith becomes a little bit harder to live out.
