Loving. Inclusive. Affirming.

Hope at a Glance

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.

As a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), we're a diverse community of genuine welcome and inclusion for all people -- no matter what you look like, who you love, or where you were born. All of us are made in the image of God – and each of us is a work in progress.

In a nutshell, here are our values:
† God before All
† Kingdom before Congregation
† People before Property
† Love before Doctrinal Precision

Our intention: Never to buy property or build buildings but instead direct those dollars into helping others -- both in our immediate community and around the world.

Hope commits to invest at least 20 percent of offerings beyond our doors. Since 2012, we have given away more than $738,200 – extending compassion across eight biblical ‘pavilions’ of service:  

  • health & wellness
  • poverty action
  • shepherd care for the often neglected
  • mentoring
  • creation & animal care
  • education & the arts
  • justice
  • gospel proclamation
