Located at 1771 S. Wiesbrook Road Wheaton, IL 60189 (Directions)
Sunday Worship at 10 am

Masking is now optional inside Hope Church.  Hand sanitizing is still encouraged, and sanitizing stations will remain in place.  To reduce the likeliness of person-to-person disease transmission, we will still not pass the offering plates or return to traditional handling of communion elements at this time.  Hand microphones will be used for Prayers of the People, but the ushers will hold the mikes for each speaker.  To encourage being in community after worship, coffee and other drinks may now be served in the Gathering Room after service.  

Restrictions may be further relaxed, or re-imposed, based on progression of COVID in our area.  Thank you for your patience and consideration.

Welcoming Hope

Embracing Hope

Hear what Hopers have to say about Hope Church!

 

Hope's Welcoming Statement

Hope strives to be a safe haven for God's unconditional love.  Every person is invited and encouraged to participate in all Hope activities and roles, including membership and leadership.  In this world most human conflict and separation are caused by differences, like ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, economic status, political positions and more. Hope embraces diversity and welcomes all who come through our doors, without exception.

Jay's Weekly Message

To Those Who Wait in Hope

Some scriptures, although written with very specific historical contexts, speak to common and general situations we all face week to week and even day to day.  One of those is how to move forward when one is faced with indecision or fear.  Another is the common question: “which way to go?.”  A last question is often, “What are the costs my life will accrue if I continue as I have?”  

Our Scripture this Sunday comes from the Gospel of Luke(9:51-62, and contains some rather blunt and cryptic statements of Jesus; infamously so. This is not the friendly Jesus, nor the one who loves us (although love us he does and friendly he can be, but as C.S Lewis stated of Aslan “Dangerous he always is"), but the one who takes our hand, in the midst of the storm of life and says, “Follow me if you want to live.”

I am slowly recovering each day (sometimes set back by disobeying dietary doctor’s suggestions), and give great thanks to all who reached out with words and notes of kindness.  None of that was lost on me;  it all mattered and in some ways was crucial.

I give thanks for Pastor Katie’s guidance in the Word this last Sunday, and look forward to taking a side of “the helm” with you all in my return.  Blessings to you until Sunday.

Pastor Jay
