Thursday, September 29 | We are his: dedication

Posted by Kati Pessin on

Wednesday, September 28 | he is God: reality

Posted by Kati Pessin on

Read Psalm 95 “For He is our God.” When we come together for worship as a community, we are aligned together. We align over the reality of who God is. Read Psalm 95, noting the descriptions of God. When we affirm together that God is God, we are affirming that we are not. When we...

Friday September 23 | Reaching "The One"

Friday September 16 | God's Mission: Our Mission

Posted by Kati Pessin on

“Helping people find their way back to God.” This is how we express our mission at Harbor of Hope. I hope that after the past few days, you can see how this mission is not something unique or new that we here at Harbor just came up with on our own because it sounded cool! No, our...
