BEACON OF HOPE
A Christian church on Martha's Vineyard
"[The] veil can only be removed by believing in Christ...whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away."
(2 Corinthians 3:14, 16)
SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP
We are happy to meet together every Sunday at 10 AM (usually out by 11:30) to see each other, worship God, and learn how to live better as Christians.
Our current theme is Footprints for Christian Living from the Book of Acts.
ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
176 Katama Road in Edgartown and on Facebook Live
*SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 28 is our annual Thanksgiving Service (and the 1st Sunday of Advent). Come ready to publicly give thanks for what God has done in your life!
STRICTLY BIBLE STUDY
1. Grab a Bible and start to read it everyday, starting with Genesis.
2. Focus on what you understand, and don't get hung-up on what you don't understand.
3. Immediately after reading, think, "How would I summarize what I just read?" and "What might God be trying to tell me?"
Every Sunday we now have Kid's Church for little ones,
dismissed right after music (Praise & Worship).
Every Saturday morning we pray together at 8:45
at the bandstand in beautiful Ocean Park, Oak Bluffs.

About Beacon of Hope
Beacon of Hope is a non-denominational Christian church on Martha's Vineyard.
It was started in 2014 by a group of believers in Jesus Christ who were called to start
a new fellowship for Islanders and visitors alike.
After setting an excellent foundation, Rev. Don Bradley retired as the lead pastor.
Rev. Greg Bar returned to the Island in January of 2020 to pastor the church
(having ministered on M.V. previously from 1986 through 2004),
and Rev. John McCormick is our Associate Pastor.
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.
We invite you to visit any one of our meetings, check us out on Facebook and contact us there, or by phone (774-310-3343) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
You may also email the pastor directly at email@example.com.
Our meetings are also on YouTube (hopemv) and MVTV Sundays mornings at 11 (and mvtv.org).
"So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable.
Always work enthusiastically
for the Lord,
for you know
that nothing you do for the Lord
is ever useless. "
I Corinthians 15:58
