 Hope Chapel, Greensboro, NC

Invitation to a Worship Service of Organization
A worship service of organization will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday, April 14, instead of the usual morning service. While it will not change much practically at Hope Chapel, becoming “organized” is a significant step, as the church will now be recognized as a “church” instead of a “mission.” Please join them for this worship service, whether you are a member, regular attender, visitor, or have supported Hope Chapel in the past. There will be a catered dinner following the service. A nursery will be provided for children ages 0-4 during the service, and children will then join their parents for dinner.



A Father’s Musings on Marriage

As the father of three girls, David Griffin takes the business of preparing each of them for marriage as a very serious task. “To be sure, the young man must come through me if he seeks the hand of one of my little girls in marriage,” Rev. Griffin said.

In the May/June issue of The Associate Reformed Presbyterian, read how Griffin goes from “fending” to “finding” the right man for his daughters. “It is my joyful responsibility to help each one find the man who is to be her loving and faithful husband; in plenty and in want; in joy and in sorrow; in sickness and in health; as long as they both shall live.”

Then read the followup article, Old-Fashioned Accountability, by Tabletalk Magazine Editor Burk Parsons. As he reflects on the often dreaded conversation he had with his father-in-law, he’s reminded of the reality of the Lord’s sovereign direction and accountability in the covenant of marriage. “The Lord holds us to the covenants we have made,” he said.
