Closer Than A Brother - Part 5: The Access Advantage
|| Abe Brown April 14, 2024

We all know that it’s true: Life is not so much about WHAT you know, but WHO you know. Friends in high places can open doors, create opportunities, and make a world of difference in even the smallest of ways. As believers, we have the kind of access to God that the Bible describes as being “Closer Than A Brother”. Join us for the next step in this series as Pastor Abe breaks down the MANY advantages of the access you now have to God the Father, and how to deepen your level of access and intimacy with God starting TODAY.

Introducing: Building PEOPLE
HOPE got us “here”, but PEOPLE will get us “there”.

At Hope Church YYC, we are thrilled to announce the next phase in our Building HOPE Campaign, which is Building PEOPLE.
Our Mission is Loving God and Loving People, and people are truly the heart of God.
Hope Church YYC is focused on Building People and fulfilling our vision to Embrace, Equip, and Empower them. We are passionately committed to building PEOPLE in a way that is loving, authentic, and transformational.
Join us for this exciting next level as we step together into our future and destiny as a church.

There is nothing more important than loving and building people. The entire heart of God for people is to Embrace, Equip, and Empower…
I Peter 2:2-5 > “Like new-born babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good. 4 As you come to him, the living Stone —rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”

God Is Knitting HCYYC Together Into A Spiritual House!. We all start as isolated stones and alone. But we are also unique and precious stones, chosen by God, and rejected by men. God then knits us together into one body and one house, so we are not isolated bricks on the brick-pile of life but knit together into a spiritual house. When you are an isolated brick and not part of the house, anyone can pick you off the brick-pile and toss you aside. But when you are cemented into God’s House at HCYYC, you are no longer vulnerable, isolated, and alone.

Because God has given you a heart for Hope Church YYC, we ask you to prayerfully consider how the Lord would have you contribute to this offering. None of us can accomplish alone what all of us can accomplish together.

have you joined a Hope church connect GROUP ?


We would love to see everyone be part of a healthy connect group! We are passionate about loving God and loving people. Connect Groups are three or more people who meet together (in-person or online) around relevant topics or activities that strengthen their relationship with community and with Christ. These are safe and fun environments around food and authentic connection.
