Sunday highlights

  • You're invited to Christmas Eve at hope

    We're holding three special Christmas Eve services this year in the Worship Center. Unwind from the hustle and bustle of the season and join us at 2:30, 3:30, or 4:30 to celebrate the best gift of all this Christmas.

  • Join a Rooted Group

    If you have not experienced Rooted yet, sign up TODAY. Groups begin January 20. This is not a bible study. It's not a traditional small group, program, or seminar series. This is a community event that will provoke questions, conversations, and group experiences that are designed to help you find yourself in God's story. Upon completion, you will see and hear God in new ways, and you will be emboldened to live out your calling as a follower of Jesus.

  • Gift for Christ Update

    We've received over $232,000 for our annual Gift for Christ offering. Thank you, church family, for your generosity. Our goal is $335,000. We will continue to accept offerings through the end of December. Let's beat our goal and help us spread the gospel around the world in 2019.

    Hope Center for Pregnancy Open House

    On Sunday, Dec 9, you are invited to walk through our new facility from 9a-1:30p. Get your first look at the new facility, and pray for the babies, women, and families that will be touched by the gospel through this ministry. If you feel led to give a donation, we are in immediate need of diapers (newborn to 3T), wipes, receiving blankets, bottles, pacifiers, teething toys, onesies, & sleepers. Bring all donations to the church or the Hope Center for Pregnancy.

    Budget Q&A

    It's been an incredible year at Living Hope, and we're excited to see what God has in store for us in 2019. Relive where we've been, see where we're headed, and review our 2019 budget in our booklet, A Vision of Hope. Pick up your copy in Guest Connect. For more information, join us for a budget Q&A at 4p in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday, Dec 9.
