Christian life is the journey towards wholeness, to become the person we were meant to be. But this is no do-it-yourself project. Wholeness is a cooperative venture, and Christian community is a web of supportive relationships that makes wholeness possible. What begins through a living relationship with Christ, continues through the living and breathing connections in community.
We want to provide a way of thinking about connection that functions naturally and organically. While we all need to connect, we do so in ways that are uniquely meaningful to us. While there are a host of ways people connect at Hope, it will take some initiative on your part.
Connection may happen through a program or event, through volunteering, or simply because you are willing to strike up a conversation with someone new.
Every year we produce a journal for the community that serves as a catalogue, a workbook, and as a significant point of CONNECTION.
Our annual Journal outlines an entire year for us and has all of the teaching series we’ll engage together, along with information about who we are as a community, and resources for those looking to connect.
You can pick one up for free at the Welcome Counter on a Sunday morning.
New or newer to Hope and wondering what's next? Then join us for NEXT, a brief-after-service, overview of our community that can help you determine your best next step. NEXT will happen (Oct 2, Nov 27, Jan 29, April 9, May 28) following our Sunday morning gathering in the prayer room.

Want to introduce yourself, but don't know how? Want to meet others from Hope?
While we all enjoy Hope's Sunday Service, we know it may not be the easiest place to meet people or introduce yourself. Watch for different opportunities throughout the year to meet other new people in casual, fun, environments.
Watch for after service opportunities (like Super Bowl Sunday's "Souper Sunday") or sign up to host or join a Dinner Party. Connecting socially is a significant part of our growing community.
