Welcome to Real Hope In Christ
We’re Glad You’re Here
This is Not Your Mama’s Bible Study, “The Easter Experience”
Real Hope in Christ will NOT be meeting in-person through April 3rd. At that time, we will evaluate guidelines set out by the state and local officials. Text or call us at 352-897-0352 if you need to reach us.
During this time of social distancing, grow and develop your own connection to God and BE THE CHURCH! Love people from a distance! Call, text, or video chat with your family and friends.
Our Wednesday night group are just a few weeks into the Easter Experience so if you’re just joining us it will be easy to catch up. On the church website, the third video, My Pain is Understood, is available for viewing and we have a few CD’s at the church building in case you prefer that format.
For anyone who has ever felt alone or abandoned, Jesus knows how you feel – betrayed by his friends, the crowd demands the death of Jesus. Tortured, bleeding, in agony, the soldiers inflict more pain by placing a crown of thorns upon his head, and taunt and mock him. Those who loved him, including his own mother Mary, had to endure witnessing this pain and torment.
What can you do specifically to get through these times of uncertainty? Focus on the GOOD news of Christ! Get in the Word. On your smart phone, download the YouVersion Bible app. It’s free! Daily verses will be delivered to you. There are many devotional plans you can sign up for. Check out The Easter Experience, a 6-day study that is based on the Wednesday night series.

Please take all measures seriously. While you may not fall in a high risk category, your friends, family and neighbors may. Even those of us in your church family may not be in a high risk group but we live with folks who are.
We put our trust in God! Pray without ceasing – pray for the world! He can deliver us.
We thank you for joining with us in worshiping our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We hope that you enjoyed today’s Bible Study and encourage you seek God in everything that you do.
At Real Hope In Christ our purpose is to love the Lord our God with all of our hearts and with all of our souls and with all of our minds.
Our focus begins with all the people of Citrus County and by the Grace of God we will:
Gather together to worship and celebrate God, Grow in our knowledge and faith,
Give in love and,
Go out into the world to shine brightly with the light of salvation from our Savior Jesus Christ and tell the world what we know is true; God Loves You No Matter What!
We boldly ask God to help us shake the Earth and touch the Heavens!
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to Him,
and He will make your paths straight.
We look forward to seeing you again. Thank you and May God bless you!
