.: OUR HOPE CHURCH
Our worship, education and ministry is about encouraging, influencing, celebrating and sometimes stretching and pushing to grow into the authentic, passionate, reflective person God has called us to be.
We are particularly passionate about social, political and economic justice ministries. Our theological perspectives and experiences range from unchurched, to de-churched, to doubters to passionate lovers of Jesus Christ.
We are overjoyed when all those voices speak equally at the table of Jesus Christ. At Hope this happens because Christ is our Mediator and the Center of our focus. Please come join us. You just might be surprised and filled with hope to last throughout the week.
