Higher Love Sermon Series
Do any of us ever feel that we have enough love? What can fill the gap between the love we long for and the love we currently experience? How is God’s love better, higher, more expansive, and more fulfilling than any other love we have experienced? Join us as we continue our Higher Love sermon series, looking at what real love is, as God defines it.

Jingle Jam
Experience the wonder of the Christmas story, told like never before. Jingle Jam is a Christmas party big enough for the whole family! Shows at 11am, 2pm and 5pm on Saturday, December 9th. Details and tickets at

Cookies with Santa
On December 14th at our West Creek campus, children with special needs (infant-5th grade), along with their siblings and parents, are invited to enjoy cookies & milk with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Kids can wear pajamas and get a picture with Santa in a calm, intimate setting where they feel comfortable. Space is limited to 25 families. Register at here.

HOPE Church

Offering experiences, relationships and places where people can find life and purpose through Jesus Christ. From the beginning, Hope has been trying to help people who don’t know God, have every opportunity to do so. It’s part of our DNA. Since we believe a church is people and not a building, this means our mission can happen every day and all over the place – as Hope people go to work or school, and spend time with family, friends and colleagues. This means that we could offer experiences anywhere we find ourselves – a ball game, an evening out for dinner with a friend, a neighborhood cookout – you get the picture. It means that many places can become places where we seek to help people find life, God-life, the real thing. And we know that this often happens though sincere relationships and friendships.
