I recently came across an intelligence quiz.  Try to answer the questions and then grade yourself with the answers below.
1) How long did the Hundred Years' War last?  2) Which country makes Panama hats?  3) From which animal do we get catgut?  4) In which month do Russians celebrate the October Revolution?  5) What is a camel-hair brush made of?  6) The Canary Islands in the Pacific are named after what animal?  7) What was King George VI's first name?  8) What color is a purple finch?  9) Where are Chinese gooseberries from?
Answers: 1) 116 years, from 1337 to 1453. 2) Ecuador. 3) From sheep and horses. 4) November. The Russian calendar was 13 days behind ours. 5) Squirrel fur. 6) The Latin name was Insularia Canaria— meaning Island of the Dogs. 7) Albert. When he came to the throne, in 1936 he respected the wish of Queen Victoria that no future king should ever be called Albert. 8) Distinctively crimson. 9) New Zealand.
So how did you do?  One final question: Do you have a problem with pride?  Like the questions above, the answer may not be as obvious as we tend to think.  So let’s explore this issue!

Join us this Saturday, June 19th at 5pm as we jump back into our series on the book of Daniel -- Living For God in a Godless Culture!


In-Person Worship Time & Place!

We hope you can join us each Saturday at 5pm at Liberty Church! (1640 W Gelden Rd, Lindenhurst, IL 60046).  FYI: We will have children and youth classes during the message time.  Masks are optional.

Sunday Prayer & Ministry Time

Every Sunday from 8:30 - 9:15am, we will have a time of prayer for the needs of our body.  We invite you to join us on ZOOM just to quietly listen, silently pray, share your requests or pray aloud for each other.  We encourage all of you to join us! It will be held on the same ZOOM channel as our Sunday Zoom fellowship and service replay.

Sunday Zooming for FELLOWSHIP! 

Every Sunday at 9:15am, we will have a 15-minute open Zoom time for everyone at Hope to connect with one another. This will be an unstructured time to connect. We encourage all of you to join us just to say hi! In addition, for those who missed our Saturday worship service, we will replay a recording of the service beginning at 9:30am on the same Zoom channel. Here’s the Zoom info: Meeting ID: 287 775 281; Passcode: 019752  Click this link to connect!
