We’ve been inviting our congregation to bring pictures to Hope to be placed around the sanctuary that show Christ’s Love and Grace in our Church community. As the webmaster I thought “hey, we have pictures here in the website, maybe I can put some of them up!” This little slideshow is just a small snapshot of all the wonderful people and events that happen because Hope is here. Come and join us this Sunday for the annual church celebration of our campaign and bring your own pictures that show the outpouring of Love from our community!

Enjoy our worship service. We apologize that the prayer requests may not be able to be heard as we were having some microphone issues.
Please enjoy our Worship service. Thank you to Julie Buehler for her meaningful message, “Being God’s Humble Ambassador”.
Today we heard from Alice Collins about “Mary and Martha: A Work in Progress” with a children’s story on the same topic from Debbie Ewing and some beautiful harmonica selections from Ingmar Eggen.
A lovely service today. We were treated to solos from Susan Andrade and a great sermon, “Getting free of the Yolky Yoke” from Rev. Sam Wilde. Enjoy!
