A New Meeting Space!
After five months of meeting in homes and then in a store for seven months, God has opened the door for us to have our own space again.
Our new space is a second floor space downtown. This is where we felt God wanted us for a long time, but there were some roadblocks along the way which hindered us. We are so grateful the Lord has now made a way for us downtown to serve and bless our community through prayer, worship and more!
“God is our refuge, our refuge and strength…”
This quote was there before we came; we aren’t sure when or who scribed it there. Nonetheless, it is apparent God had already marked this space to be used for His purposes. God told FHOP–not at all by coincidence–we would be His refuge from the storm for those who come, and here is this very prophetic word written over our new space!
The new space is named “The Prayer Room” and we began meeting there in September.
Starting 10/14, our weekly gatherings will meet on Sundays at 2:00PM. As a house of prayer rather than a traditional church, we want to honor our local churches by choosing a time that does not conflict with morning church services to foster unity in the Body of Christ.
For the past year we met on Thursdays instead; however, being a weekday evening, this was difficult for most. We also have many–including myself and my husband–who consider FHOP our spiritual family and have schedules that do not allow us time to attend other services each week.
This gathering will serve as a time for our FHOP family to grow in community and discipleship, to pray for one another and to be equipped as the Body of Christ.
We will still meet on Thursdays at 7:00PM as well with one difference: This gathering will become a time of prayer and worship for our community and any who desire to come.
The Prayer Room
Our new space will specifically be designed as a place for believers in our community to unite in worship and prayer. In coming months, we will set a regular schedule for The Prayer Room.
The purpose of The Prayer Room is three-fold:
- To provide a place set apart to exalt Jesus in worship.
- To join believers in God’s love and purpose–regardless of church or denomination–unto the fulfillment of Jesus’ prayer for the unity of believers with God and each other (John 17:20-26).
- To partner actively with God in prayer for His will to be done in our lives and our communities.
Partner With Us
FHOP will soon have giving financially available through the website and mobile devices. We ask for your prayers that God would lead people to partner with us financially so we can fulfill our God-given assignments without hindrance, especially in providing this new giving opportunity.
Join in praying with us for God to bring all those He wants to join in what He is doing in The Prayer Room. Please continue to pray for the work of God’s Kingdom through us in the midst of these exciting happenings.
