What can I expect at Hope?

Informal and interactive. There are snacks and drinks available that you are welcome to enjoy, even during the service. Teaching during the service is usually about a half-hour long, often with some interactive elements, be it discussion or something a little more active. If you have a Bible, bring it along with you. Otherwise, we have some extras you may use as well. Services start at 10:30am and are done by noon.

We love kids! Part of the DNA of Hope is our desire to be multi-generational, which means that we desire to pass down our love and knowledge of God to children.

  • There is nursery available during the service for kids aged 0-3
  • Children's Church during the teaching portion of the service for kids 4 years - 5th grade
  • Children are also welcome to sit in the service with their guardians

Hope does not have a parking lot, so street parking is the way to go.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28). To our knowledge, Jesus didn't institute many requirements on what to wear when people came to him. He just wanted people to come in need of and dependence upon Him. If you like to dress up, you are welcome to do so. If you want to wear shorts and flip-flops in the snow, you are welcome to do so. For what it's worth, our pastor typically teaches in jeans, sneakers, and a button-down shirt. However, if you are seeking Jesus, we want you here, no matter how you are dressed.

We typically serve everyone the bread, representing the body of Christ, and eat together, followed by serving everyone grape juice (as a fill-in for wine, considering those who may abstain from alcohol), representing the blood of Christ, and drink together. Sometimes the method we serve communion may be a little different, but the focus on Jesus is always the same.

You do not need to be a member of Hope Community Fellowship to join us in communion. The only requirement is that you confess Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior.

Nothing. You are under no obligation to give. The financial support of our church comes from those who are members and regular attenders. In fact, we rarely even pass an offering plate, so you don't have to feel like we're saying, "Thanks for coming, now give us money." Instead of worrying about money, simply come and meet with Jesus.
