Thoughts and reflections from Pastor Lin.

I am so very excited about all God continues to do in and through Blessed Hope CC!  There continues to be huge spiritual momentum at our church and I am just in awe to see the Hand of God working in so many areas! Below are just a few of the things happening recently: Our new midweek worship services continue to be well attended and loved!  I can see God using these midweek services to bring our people even closer together!  PTL! We had prayer group last night and had 18 people show up!  That's AMAZING because getting people to show up to pray is often the hardest thing to do in the church. Lisa is cancer free!  Huge answer to our prayers! Bill Lamb has gotten a miracle! We are sending out 15,000 direct mailers to people who live in a three mile radius of the the theater next week to invite people to our annual Easter Open House! BHCC's giving is higher than it's ever been! Praying for it to continue so we can do so much more in the Kingdom of God! Go God! We continue to get many new people joining our church! Excited to recently have a New York State Trooper and a doctor become part of our church. ...

Last week was BHCC’s first Wednesday midweek service and by all accounts, it was a huge success! We had over 40 people show up and the really Good News was: God showed up in awesome ways!

We fellowshipped, we read scripture, we had a brief teaching, we broke into small groups and discussed  the topic; and then we just worshipped and prayed!

We even had some people who came from hearing about it on our website.  One gal was visiting from North Carolina and said she had been searching for God in five different churches in the past several weeks, but our church was the first one that offered to pray for her.  I love our church!

BHCC continues to grow and God is clearly pouring out His blessing and provision upon us!  We’ve had MANY miracles happen in the last few weeks!  I am never ceased to be amazed at how MUCH God shows His love and provision to the the people at BHCC!

We are so excited!!!! God continues to grow BHCC and in order to meet the many and varied needs of the family of God, we are beginning a brand new Mid-week worship service starting on Ash Wednesday! On Wednesday, Feb. 22nd (Ash Wednesday), Blessed Hope Community Church will begin a weekly Midweek worship service that will continue every Wednesday night from 7-8:30pm at our Mosaic Campus at 2481 Browncroft Blvd in our Mosaic Cafe. This service will be held in a Coffee House Atmosphere and will be casual, contemporary and always relevant. Every week, our focus will be on answering the question, what does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus Christ? How do I live that out in my life from day to day? The format for worship service will be very different from our Sunday service. We will have a 15 minute teaching message and then will have 30 minutes of small group discussion on teaching topic. The last 30 minutes will be worship and prayer! This is a time for everyone to go deeper with biblical teachings...

Hey BHCC Peeps, watch your mailboxes this week for a very important letter! Will post it here after all the letters have gone out!  Exciting things happening at BHCC!  Keep singing this song:

BHCC is entering into a week of prayer! Mark 11:23 Words of Jesus “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.

Are you willing to SPEAK to the mountain? Jesus says we must do more than pray about our troubles. He says we must be willing to SPEAK to our mountains with the authority that Christ has given us!



Calling all people with mountain moving faith:



Please join us TONIGHT at 7PM at our Mosaic Cafe Campus for a time of WORSHIP, PRAYER and speaking to the mountains to be removed! We will speaking to the mountain of cancer, sicknesses, broken relationships, hardened hearts, lack of faith, apathy, unforgiveness, skeptism and spiritual laziness!



This will be a night to see miracles and HEALINGS!!! Come be a part of seeing mountains MOVE in Jesus' name!

I don't know if I've ever been as excited about Christmas as I am this year. Yes, having a brand new granddaughter definitely has something to do with it. :-) But it's even more than that. Yes, it's exciting to see how BHCC continues to grow and produce fruit. But it's still more than that. Yes, I absolutely love doing our current Christmas series, but it's more than that! Yes, I am REALLY excited about having our Christmas Eve service in the movie theater this year for the first time, but it's still more than that!!! The bottom line is, more than all these wonderful, incredible things, I am truly MOST excited and happy beyond belief about Jesus Christ!!! After all these years of knowing Him, my joy has not subsided, only INCREASED!!! He still absolutely amazes me! No words can describe how wonderful He is! Nothing on earth compares to Him! And when I think about how great His love is for us, I am again, AMAZED! I thank God that I get to be His servant. I get frustrated at times...

Pastor John (& Jen) bring the newest member of BHCC HOME! :-)





October is Pastor Appreciation Month! Last Sunday, BHCC gave Pastor John and I an incredible gift! They flooded us with cards filled with words of love, gratitude & appreciation! They also gave us a much desired Keurig Coffee Maker (or hot chocolate maker depending on your preference!). We greatly appreciate the Keurig, but there are no words to describe what the love-filled words mean to us! Words can have an amazing power, can't they? I love written words because you can read them over and over again! I truly feel sorry for anyone who does not know what it means to have a church family.  They have no idea what they are missing. So many people see the church as a building or a place you go too and they don't understand that the Church is the family of God! In fact, it's strange to me how many people...
