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.


For a month-by-month review of Hope's efforts to reach wider, click and scroll down:
While in-person Sunday morning worship is suspended, we've developed a 12-minute worship experience for 3/29 with people from Hope and Oviedo Presbyterian contributing prayers, a scripture lesson by Nancy, and a call to action by Paul. (Nancy's husband Paul is pastor at Oviedo Pres.) The video is personal rather than professional, real people instead of high tech. It won't be anything like the televangelists you can find elsewhere, but it's us. 
Hope is sponsoring a DIY Easter Bonnet (or Headgear!) Facebook Photo Contest to win $200 for a Health & Wellness nonprofit of the winner's choice. The hat must be made from items you already have. Turn on the subtitles for the video linked below -- or go to the YouTube description for details, including bonus credits. Act fast and have fun -- and let's do a little good for the world while we're sheltering.
Below you'll find brief reflections on Isaiah 42.13-16, the scripture text for the Third Sunday in Lent (our first in quarantine) from our shared Lenten Devotional, A Way Other Than Our Own. It also includes a short prayer for our world (and a few subtle sound effects from our youngest dog!).
Due to the rapidly changing status of COVID-19, the state of Florida has suspended meetings at schools until 4/15.  Watch this space for news about virtual connections during this time of preventive social action.
As of 3/1/2020, Hope Pres has provided 892 microloans in 80 nations (totaling $22,750) via our lending team through Kiva, a nonprofit agency vetting microloans to entrepreneurs in the developing world and the United States.
