RT @dianabutlerbass: In the light of eternity, we’re here for a very short time, really. We’re here for one thing, ultimately: to learn how…

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.

We stand for justice. See this joint statement about racism and the current racial climate by pastor Nancy Graham Ogne and Paul Ogne, pastor at Oviedo Presbyterian.
With Florida repeatedly shattering daily high records of coronavirus in June, our session has prayerfully decided to delay a return to public worship until at least early August. The session will reconvene in late July to consider COVID trends, the wisdom of infectious disease experts, and best counsel from our extended church family to discern next steps. In the meantime, we'll continue our digital connections.  Below you'll find our shared worship with Oviedo Presbyterian for Sunday 7/5 -- which includes a service of communion. Please join us using food and drink from your home.
As of 7/1/2020, Hope Pres has provided 924 microloans in 80 nations (totaling $23,600) via our lending team through Kiva, a nonprofit agency vetting microloans to entrepreneurs in the developing world and the United States.
