Our Big News

If you missed church on Sunday, you missed some really good cupcakes.

These were the leftovers on Monday.

We ate them for breakfast.

You also missed some really big news.

For us, at least.

Dave was able to quit his job at CityTeam, Oakland.

To pastor Hope full-time.

We are so thankful for God's provision through His people.

We are excited, humbled and anxiously anticipate all that the Lord is going to do.

As Dave has more time, energy and focus to place on our sweet church.


Super thankful to our church body for seeing a need.

And fulfilling it so generously.

We anxiously await this next season.

It is our privilege and joy to serve you.

It always has been.

  12. Hi There!

    I just found your blog today (by way of Ashley Ann Photography). I started reading and reading and then you mentioned Oakland. Then you mentioned that you were from a church. Then I looked it up and was so encouraged to find that your church plant is just across the way from ours! We just planted in Berkeley; Sunday was out first service. I'm Glad to know about you and your church. I'll be sure to pray for you.
