[11/07/19]   Bible Readings, November 4 to 25, 2019

The purpose of reading the Bible is not only to discover the meaning of what is written but also to find out who God is and how a passage applies to me. That requires us to ask questions --What does it mean? How should it change what I do or don’t do? The Holy Spirit is the source of both wisdom & power for us as we go through life. We encourage you to pray to the Spirit for insight before you begin reading & to pray for strength, wisdom, and motivation afterward.

Jesus: “Blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it!” Luke 11:28

[07/01/19]   Hello, everyone! Hope you're enjoying your summer.

Just a note - we will not be having our monthly fellowship dinner this Wed. in observance of the 4th of July holiday.

Q: How many Mt. Hope men does it take to catch a fish?
A: Ten!

The men recently enjoyed an outing to Lake Frederick. Although the fish were elusive, it was an enjoyable boating excursion and time of hanging out.

"...Just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his."
Rom. 6:4-5

[04/21/19]   But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.”
Matt. 28:5-6

He is risen! Come celebrate with us!

Olde Virginia

Yesterday I was scrounging around in the woods of Waxpool Va and captured this beautiful Fall scene of Mount Hope Baptist Church. I've seen my great grandfather's name on the church membership roll for the late 1890's

Mount Hope Baptist Church was established on 24 August 1835. It is located in an area known at the time as Red Hill, then Waxpool, and now Ashburn in Loudoun County, VA. The founding members of the church had been part of the congregation at Long Branch Baptist Church, near Middleburg. The charter members of Mount Hope chose Reverend Thaddeus Herndon (1807-1878), a member of the Long Branch congregation and an ordained minister, to lead the new church. Rev. Herndon served a circuit and was a pastor at several Baptist churches in Loudoun and surrounding counties. He was Mount Hope's minister from 1835-1943, and again from 1847-1852.

Mount Hope allowed enslaved and free African Americans to join the congregation and the minutes often refer to them as "colored Brothers" and "servant girls." Slaves of church members were allowed to join the church, and those whose owners did not attend Mount Hope could also join, if their owners gave written permission.

There is a gap in the minutes from 1860 to 1864, the years of the Civil War. In 1864, the minutes note that their "Pastor being deprived of preaching for us in consequence of the great trouble of our country, we had no preaching since the year 61." The minutes resume in 1865.

The exact location of the original church building is not known, but a church was erected on the present site of Mount Hope in 1853. The church is located near the intersection of roads now called Belmont Ridge Road and Waxpool Road, though at the time of building they were known as Gumspring Road and the Old Church Road, respectively. The church occupied this building until a new structure was erected in 1893 in the same location. Mount Hope Baptist Church continues to use this structure today.

How cool to find this! Thanks Forgotten Virginia!

Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
