Who We Are

Loving. Inclusive. Affirming. 

We are a fun and imperfect community of Christ-followers, committed to grow deeper with God and  others and reach wider to serve and share God's love with the world. What's more, we look a lot like the universal Church: a multi-ethnic family of all ages, affirming the worth of every human being.

Launched in 2012 as part of 1001 New Worshiping Communities of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), we aim to bring our unique blend of Reformed understanding and passion for Jesus Christ to this emerging community.

Hope is loving, inclusive and affirming -- welcoming people of every race, gender, orientation, age, physical and mental ability, national origin, economic station and political perspective to full participation in the life of our community. All of us are made in the image of God – and each of us is a work in progress.

We believe every Christ-follower is a minister -- and that we live all of our lives unto God.

In a nutshell, here are our priorities:
  • God before All
  • Kingdom before Congregation
  • People before Property
  • Love before Doctrinal Precision
Though the list isn’t comprehensive – and frankly, it’s always percolating – we think these convey our posture when we’re at our best.

Announcements

On Sunday 5/8 we celebrated Confirmation Sunday, welcoming Hope's newest members with a brief reception following worship.

Forgive Medical Debt , 2022

Fundraising ideas for schools, churches, and youth sports teamsThermometer By ABC Fundraising®
Hope seeks slowly and steadily to chisel away at our goal to raise $10,000 in 2022, the year of our 10th birthday, to eradicate $1 Million of medical debt in a local county through RIP Medical Debt.

As of 4/26, we've generated enough to forgive $177,700 -- more than 10 percent of our goal!

We urge all who are interested to join the cause: Commemorate a birthday or anniversary by designating a dime or a dollar per year to the fund! We'll collect throughout 2022. Mark your check or envelope "RIP" or "Medical Debt Fund."

Prior to the 2022 campaign, in two combined drives Hope eradicated $1,080,600 in medical debt!

See the video below to learn how RIP works to forgive devastating medical debt.
