Relating Beyond Hope
Our gatherings at Hope are relating beyond our building to the local community, the nation, and the world. We reach out to feed the hungry, both directly (e.g. volunteering at the Peoples Resource Center food pantry) and by supporting worldwide hunger relief programs (e.g. Bread for Life). In addition, we have developed close relationships with two sister churches - one in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood for over 25 years and the other a small church in Havana, Cuba for over 5 years.

Promoting Interfaith Hope
Hope strives to develop relationships with all our diverse neighbors, whatever their backgrounds or religious convictions, they are a gift from God. Through our relationships with Bethel New Life, an African American congregation, and with friends discovered through our Hispanic Outeach Ministry, we are grateful for the glimpses of the Beloved Community on our little hill. Members of the Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, Native American, Mormon and LGBT communities also participate in our worship services, adult education classes and outreach activities. We learn from one another, support each other in difficult times, and celebrate our common life together. Click on the Ministry/Partners tab for more.
