January 2017 is right around the corner, and HOPE Church would like to invite you to join our upcoming family gathering, "Abundant Joy", with Steve and Wendy Backlund. This will be the 8th year they have joined us here in Wyoming and it is such a delight and blessing to have them again!

Steve and Wendy Backlund are leaders of the Global Legacy Team at Bethel Church in Redding California, and they are also the founders of Ignited Hope Ministries (www.ignitinghope.com). Steve & Wendy are a powerful couple in the Kingdom of God, bringing revelation on the transforming power of joy and laughter, revealing spiritual keys for victorious living, and empowering Christians with the skills to "..be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2

During our time together, you can expect to:

· Increase your hope through a Truth encounter

· Discover how the person with the most hope has the most influence

· Receive fresh revelation for an overcoming, victorious life

· Understand the surprising power of laughter to overcome lies

· Learn the power of being "beliefs focused" rather than "conduct focused"

· Build connections with your extended spiritual Family                

"Abundant Joy" will be taking place at HOPE Church (520 S Walnut St, Casper, WY) on January 20th-22nd, with sessions on Friday at 7 pm, Saturday at 10 am and 7 pm, and Sunday at 10:30 am. The sessions will be free to all who attend and child care will be available for the Saturday night and Sunday morning services. (The Friday evening session will require a $2 per child fee ~ please call the church office at (307) 472-4673 to register your child for Friday's session, as space is limited.)                

We would also like to invite Senior Leaders for a Regional Pastor’s luncheon with Steve & Wendy following the Saturday morning service, at 1:00 pm at Fire Rock. Please RSVP as space is limited. This will be a more informal time with Steve & Wendy for the purpose of building relationship and connection. Each person will select from the menu and will pay for their own lunch. Please RSVP for the luncheon by calling Dena Puzella at 307-267-7599.

We hope that you will be able to come worship and fellowship with us as we learn and grow together, and as we start the new year full of Abundant JOY!
