Welcome Back, Mindy!

We are delighted to welcome back, Mindy Hatcher, as organist on Sunday, January 12. After nearly three months away recovering and recuperating from an illness, Mindy is returning to her duties and responsibilities as our organist.

Also on that Sunday at Hope United Church of Christ, The Rev. Wyatt Dagit will be our guest worship leader and preacher. Wyatt is the Spiritual Care Clinical Practice Coordinator and Educator at Unity Point, St. Luke’s Hospital, Cedar Rapids.

Pastor Mary Beth will be attending worship at First Lutheran Church, Conroy, IA (rural Marengo) in order to receive grant money from the First Lutheran All Mission Endowment Fund. Last fall, Pastor Mary Beth wrote a proposal for funds from this endowment and Hope UCC has been awarded monies to use in a future mission project. More details about the amount of the monies received will be shared in the future.
