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.


Join us for worship in-person at 10 am at Lake Nona Middle, or participate via simulcast Zoom. Send a "Contact Us" form to receive a Zoom invitation. For in-person protocols see below.

Worship Update & Videos

Hope is now conducting in-person Sunday worship at 10 am at Lake Nona Middle School -- employing rigorous protocols for those who gather in person. These include: masking at all times by all persons; social distancing at all times; temperatures taken before entry; contact info provided at sign in; no hugging, handshakes or passed items; no snacks; a somewhat shorter service.

We will continue providing some form of online option for those  who do not yet feel comfortable attending in person -- whether a shared Zoom worship or audio recordings.

To hear the audio recording of Hope's most recent Sunday service, click on the tab "Hear the Word" and find the appropriate entry.

Below you'll find the recording of the Zoom simulcast sermon for Easter Sunday 4/11. Below that is a library of many earlier services from the pandemic.

2nd Annual Golf Scramble

Hope will conduct its 2nd annual Golf Scramble and Silent Auction for Hope Scholars on Saturday 5/1/21 at Eagle Creek Country Club. In 2020 -- amid a pandemic! -- the tournament netted more than $4,000 for college scholarships. These are awarded to in-house applicants, a senior at Lake Nona High, and a senior at Oak Ridge High -- an at-risk Orlando school with which Hope shares a pre-launch connection.
