GO FOR GROWTH

"STRICTLY BIBLE STUDY"

We call it that because it's exactly what we do: study the Bible. We read it (alot), talk about it (all questions and opinions are welcome), and find truths to help us live today.

Thursday, March 7 at 4:30 PM we will begin studying the Book of Judges. Here's what author Warren Wiersbe says about it: "Picture a world where people live according to their own personal standards, where believers can’t seem to agree, and where people are trapped in every kind of sin. Sound familiar? While this list hits close to home, these issues are found in the book of Judges. And it’s during times like these where God is searching for those who are ready, willing, and available to confront the enemy."

Location March 7 is at 37a Fairfield Ave, Vineyard Haven. After that, Woodside Village, Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road in VH.

Bring a Bible, and an open heart ready to learn and grow!

GO FOR GOD

Prayer every Saturday morning at 8:45 AM, Ocean Park Bandstand in Oak Bluffs.

 

Prayer on Thursdays in February at 4 PM. Pastor Greg welcomes anyone to join him for about 30 minutes in prayer, over the phone. Praying particularly for 1) Provision; 2) Winning people to Jesus; 3) Wisdom; and 4) A permanent place to worship. Call 720-740-9818, Access Code 4091314.

KID'S CHURCH
"Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and grandchildren" (Deuteronomy 4:9).
 

Every Sunday after praise and worship (music), young children are dismissed for lessons specifically designed for them, led by capable, creative, and safe church members!

ABOUT US

Beacon of Hope

ABOUT US

 Beacon of Hope is a non-denominational Christian church on Martha's Vineyard. It was started in 2014 and after setting an excellent foundation,  Rev. Don Bradley retired as the lead pastor. Rev. Greg Bar (pictured at left with his wife, Karin) returned to the Island in January of 2020 to pastor the church (having ministered at another church on M.V. from 1986 through 2004), and Rev. John McCormick was our Associate Pastor until June of 2022. As a body of believers we are committed to following Jesus every day with integrity, loving our neighbors, caring for those in need, studying His word, worshipping and praying together, and growing in His grace and wisdom. Our Book is the Bible, our Lord is Jesus Christ, our spiritual family is everyone who is a Christian, and our neighbors are the world. We recognize that we have not yet "arrived", but are on a journey as disciples (students) of Jesus Christ, and we invite you to join us.

Our meetings are also on Facebook Live, YouTube (Beacon of Hope Church Martha's Vineyard) and MVTV Sundays mornings at 11 (and mvtv.org).
