Ways to Make Giving Easy
We invite you to set up an online or recurring bill pay for your tithes and financial contributions. This method is helpful to you and to the church! Online giving may be done via The City, bill pay, PayPal, and EFT’s. Every gift is used to fulfill our mission of offering experiences, relationships and places where people can find LIFE and PURPOSE through Jesus Christ. Find more information here.
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.
