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 gathering 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.

Fundraising ideas for schools, churches, and youth sports teamsThermometer By ABC Fundraising®
Hope has set a goal of together raising $5K by 12/31 to abolish $500,000 in medical debt for those in need, via the nonprofit RIP Medical Debt.  This marks Hope's annual Alternative Christmas Gifts effort. We urge all who are interested to donate to this cause as a "Christmas gift that matters." We will acknowledge gifts made In Honor or In Memory in our Christmas Eve bulletin; we also have donation acknowledgments (to include in a Christmas card or gift) at church. A gift of $100 forgives $10,000 in medical debt. The Session humbly requests that, if possible, gifts to this important effort be in addition to one's gifts to sustain Hope's ongoing ministry. To grace those in crisis, designate your check or envelope for Hope with the memo: RIP Medical Debt. As of 12/1, we've given enough to abolish $20K. 
As of 12/1/2019, Hope Pres has provided 859 microloans in 80 nations (totaling $21,875) via our lending team through Kiva, a nonprofit agency vetting microloans to entrepreneurs in the developing world and the United States. Find our group by clicking here --  or to learn more about Kiva, check out www.kiva.org .
