Welcome to Hope Church

We live out our Mission by knowing and loving God and His people, reaching out to and enfolding the searching and hurting, and being and forming more committed disciples.

  • We gather as a community each Sunday to worship God in a way which praises God for his faithfulness, fill our hearts with God's love, and teaches our minds the wisdom of Scripture.

  • We offer food and friendship on Sunday mornings and throughout the week.  Join us each Sunday morning at 9:20 a.m. for Coffee & Fellowship and again at 11:15 a.m., and each second Tuesday of the month for our FirstHope Community Meal.

  • Family-friendly environment … nursery, children’s worship, children and youth activities, and adult discipleship opportunities designed to help you find your purpose in life!
