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.


Hope's Happenings

To Those Seeking Hope,


I believe I’ve said this before, but I always loved Palm Sunday. In the Baptist Church we never celebrated Holy Week (Maundy Thursday/Good Friday) and so we just had Easter. But like most good things, they come in pairs, and Palm Sunday came as a sort of announcement for those who might be preoccupied with other things. Even though there is a tragic irony to Jesus’ arrival as King in Jerusalem, it is a moment of prescribed joy to those who follow him…and, by the way, did I say there is usually food involved? I invite you this Sunday for two great things at Hope (and I ‘m sure more). Michealjohn Reszler will be with us, sharing the Word and the traditional text for the day (the Triumphal Entry of Mark’s Gospel) with the title being “Pow Wow”; I wonder what he will say? And of course, THEN, we have the Palm Sunday Brunch, which in good Christian tradition (and in the tradition of the story of Jesus’ walk to the cross) is shared with friends; in this case, our friends from Bethel New Life. There is nothing like smelling those smells of warm food coming up from below us during worship (it encourages us to END on time ;), and then seeing a glimpse of all God’s people eating together. I hope you will join us…..All are ALWAYS welcome….
