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.

Welcoming Hope

A welcoming message from Pastor Jay

To Those Who Need Hope,
Youth ministry is a good training ground for life in general, and at first I balked at the idea.  All these kids were coming through the program, and not only did I not see many of them again, but many times their lives ended up far away from a church. But as I thought things through, and thought through my understanding of God, I found a way to do work with a "transitional" youth population. Although I perhaps wouldn't be able to look over their shoulder throughout their lives, God would. This Sunday we start a new 4 week series on the book of Ruth, and with it a passage that for many people embodied the love of God for a traveling people. We are all traveling and "transitory" in that sense, always as Psalm 121 says, "going in and going out." Looking forward to being in community with you for a great passage from Ruth. 
After the service, I'd like to share some thoughts on my trip to Cuba last May; "The Cuban Christ"....What can we learn from such a significant island....so small yet so a part of the history of the Americas....Hope to see you there.
