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).
"Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
The Lord works righteousness
and justice for all the oppressed.
He made known his ways to Moses,
his deeds to the people of Israel:
The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
He does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.
The life of mortals is like grass,
they flourish like a flower of the field;
the wind blows over it and it is gone,
and its place remembers it no more.
But from everlasting to everlasting
the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children’s children—
with those who keep his covenant
and remember to obey his precepts.
The Lord has established his throne in heaven,
and his kingdom rules over all.
Praise the Lord, you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his bidding,
who obey his word.
Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,
you his servants who do his will.
Praise the Lord, all his works
everywhere in his dominion.
Praise the Lord, my soul."
