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 family 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.

Our session has called a Congregational Meeting for Sunday 6/7 at 11 am -- via Zoom, or less probably, in-person -- to approve church ByLaws and elect the Elder Class of 2023. Nominees are Frederick Duron and Christina Ganley; nominations may also be submitted from the (virtual) floor.
Hopesters continue to practice social distancing, but that doesn't keep us from worship. Below you'll find our shared worship with Oviedo Presbyterian for 5/24, the Seventh Sunday of Easter and, below it, links for other recent services. 
Due to the rapidly changing status of COVID-19, our session has suspended public worship for the remainder of May. Watch this space for news about virtual connections and updates on resuming in-person gatherings.
As of 5/1/2020, Hope Pres has provided 911 microloans in 80 nations (totaling $23,225) via our lending team through Kiva, a nonprofit agency vetting microloans to entrepreneurs in the developing world and the United States.
