Last week we wrapped up our series on Daniel. We looked at the vision that Daniel had in Daniel 7. One of the first things we learned from that vision was that there has been & will be dark evil in this world which will result in pain, suffering, & persecution. That is a sobering thought.

Today we are seeing that lived out in the world around us. Every day 13 Christ-followers lose their lives for their faith and 12 churches or Christian buildings are attacked.  On the one hand, this may seem discouraging.  But David Curry, president and CEO of Open Doors USA says this:

“The numbers of God’s people who are suffering should mean the Church is dying—that Christians are keeping quiet, losing their faith, and turning away from one another.  But that’s not what’s happening. Instead, in living color, we see the words of God recorded in the prophet Isaiah: ‘I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert’” (Isa. 43:19).

So how do we stay faithful and not give up during these difficult days?  Let's talk about it!  Join us today at 5pm!


In-Person Worship Time & Place!

We hope you can join us each Saturday at 5pm at Liberty Church! (1640 W Gelden Rd, Lindenhurst, IL 60046).  FYI: We will have children and youth classes during the message time.  Masks are not required, but feel free to wear one if it makes you feel more comfortable.


Livestreaming Our Worship Service

For those who cannot or do not feel comfortable joining us in-person, we will continue to livestream our worship services. So join us Saturday at 5pm on YouTube Live!  Just click on this link to connect with our church's YouTube livestream (Note: The service will begin at 5pm, but we will begin live-streaming at 4:50pm to give you plenty of time to connect.)


Sunday Prayer & Ministry Time

Every Sunday from 8:30 - 9:15am, we will have a time of prayer for the needs of our body.  We invite you to join us on ZOOM just to quietly listen, silently pray, share your requests or pray aloud for each other.  We encourage all of you to join us! It will be held on the same ZOOM channel as our Sunday Zoom fellowship and service replay.

Sunday Zooming for FELLOWSHIP! 

Every Sunday at 9:15am, we will have a 15-minute open Zoom time for everyone at Hope to connect with one another. This will be an unstructured time to connect. We encourage all of you to join us just to say hi! In addition, for those who missed our Saturday worship service, we will replay a recording of the service beginning at 9:30am on the same Zoom channel. Here’s the Zoom info: Meeting ID: 287 775 281; Passcode: 019752  Click this link to connect!
