On June 30, 2020 a report was distributed to the RCA concerning the recommendations by the Vision 2020 Team. The report offers three main recommendations concerning the future of the denomination:
- To reorganize the RCA into groups of churches based on shared values instead of upon geographic location
- To form an independent mission organization to carry on the support of RCA missions in the future
- To provide a way for churches to depart from the RCA that is mutually generous.
Regardless of whether these recommendations are adopted by General Synod in June of 2021, these recommendations will have a significant effect on the life of the RCA in the years to come. Hope Reformed Church will need to discern what response we will want to take. I encourage you to prayerfully consider how God might be leading us as a congregation in this important matter.

In 2020, we've challenged members of Hope Reformed Church to read through the New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs. Even as the year is well underway, we encourage you to join us in reading God's Word. You can access this year's reading plan by clicking here.
