Welcome to the Hope Trending Newsletter! We're glad you've chosen to be part of this live interactive event, October 14-22. As we near opening night, we want to make sure that you stay informed on the latest updates as well as offer some inspiration for building hope in your local community. Whether you host a Watch Party or join our local audience, we look forward to having you.


Be Involved

Here are two ways you can plug in your talents to make Hope Trending a success:

Host a Watch Party... invite friends and family to watch the series in your home. We'll provide you discussion questions and follow-up materials for a thoughtful conversation following the 60 minute broadcast. You'll be able to keep the conversation going long after the live meetings.

Local Volunteers... we need your great smile and warm heart to extend a welcoming hand to those who attend the event in person. It's easy to light your light shine and make a difference.

Be Inspired

Placing yourself in a position to help others is a risky endeavor. Calculated risk, even when it's good, is met with some reservations and caution. This is a good instinct to follow. The wise man did say, "Guard your heart."

What if opening yourself up to help others is tapping into a limitless supply of God's blessing to support those you care about! Consider the story of the widow at Zarephath (1 Kings 17). Helping others comes with risk and a cost. But it also is an opportunity to unlock a greater outpouring of blessings into your own life. Do the math and challenge God to outdo your generosity to others in your life. Something tells me this is a challenge He would love to take on.
