He changes times and seasons; He deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; He knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with Him. (Daniel 2:21-22)
Matthew 28 tells us as the church to get out there and make disciples of Christ in every nation. This is our primary calling, and there are lots of things the Lord commands the church to do that comes alongside and fuels this great commission. At Hope, we have summarized that calling saying: We desire to Offer HOPE, Grow in COMMUNITY and Be The CHURCH.
The first part of our vision is to offer the Hope of the Gospel – the truth that we are sinners who need a Savior and that Savior has come, and His name is Jesus Christ. It is a joy to hear recent stories of some coming to faith during this very strange season of Covid and just recently, we had three baptisms.
Secondly, we want to grow in community. The Lord told His church to sharpen one another, encourage one another, help each other stay the course in faith, bear each other’s burdens, and pray for one another. Home Groups have been gathering again and some are still zooming, but people are staying connected and sharpening one another. Men’s and women’s ministries will be starting back up this month to facilitate spiritual growth in community.
Lastly, we are to consider others more important than ourselves. We are to care about the orphan, the widow, the hurting… we are to be the church – ministering and loving our community and the world well. I love how enthusiastic you all have been this month in buying shirts to support African pastors. It’s my hope that we will do a service project for Wilson School this upcoming month.
We have spent 9 years at a K-8 School and now God has provided us with El Conquistador to use as a gathering place to encourage one another, holding fast to the Gospel and live out our faith in love. In the future as the Lord provides and leads, we will have a building to use as a tool for this same great mission. Regardless, let’s press on to the goal!

“Be fruitful and multiply” is a phrase we have seen in the book of Genesis. It seems clear that God has created us to be fruitful and multiply physically. For many of us, we will get married and have babies. I also think this phrase applies to us spiritually. We are supposed to be fruitful with the new life we have in Christ. We are supposed to multiply the redemption we have received in Jesus. One of our biggest responsibilities and joys of being a Christ-follower is partnering with Him in His mission, the Great Commission. We are asked to join the Lord in making disciples who make disciples. That’s how we can multiply and produce fruit, fruit that will last for eternity! Go Get ‘em, Pastor Dave

We are loving having kids’ classes open again. Praise God for space at El Conquistador to gather together! Just some reminders as we move forward:
- Please send your children with water bottles (with their names on them) to their classes since we are unable to provide water now.
- Please plan to drop off and pick up your 4th and 5th graders at their classroom.
- We have changed classrooms again, so our new classrooms are configured into the following age groups:
- Nursery/Toddler (up to 3 years)
- Preschool (3-5 years)
- Kindergarten-1st grade
- 2nd-3rd grade
- 4th-5th grade
If you or anyone you know is interested in working in the nursery or toddler class, and especially interested in teaching a lesson in the toddler class, we would absolutely love your help so we can split the class again. We also need more youth helpers and adults willing to be substitutes in the older classes. Please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or a text at 520-528-5805 to get started on the application process.
I thank God for His provision of space and volunteers, and for the faces of all of your beautiful children! I am so greatly enjoying seeing everyone again and am so excited for the opportunity we have to continue to share the Gospel in these new classrooms. Please reach out to me with ways in which I can be praying for you, or if you would like to meet up in person, or if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. I would love to hear from you.

We will all be back at Summit Ridge together! Praise God! During the entire month of October HopeYouth will be gathering at Summit Ridge Community Church. We understand that Covid is still a concern so we will have leaders wear a mask, and have students be socially distant during sermon, worship and small groups. Students do run around outside and eat during HopeYouth, so we won’t mandate masks for students. There is always a chance that things will change, but for now, we are grateful to all gather together. Praying that we can approach this time and concerns with great humility and remain faithful in gathering together.
Schedule for October:
Sundays the 4, 11, 18, 25: HopeYouth at Summit Ridge Community Church from
6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
(505 W. Hardy Road)
HopeYouth Bible Studies:
Most Bible studies are pending due to Covid. We are still prayfully considering them.
High School boys do meet at Kneaders (off Oracle) Wednesdays at 3:15 p.m.
2114 W. Grant Road, PMB 87
