JOIN US SUNDAYS AT 10:30am!

Our Story

Imagine a ragtag group of people, young and old, who are on a journey with God to get real with others and see the mess they call life as one giant opportunity to experience His love and truth.

Our Strategy

belonggrowgo_web

Belong. Grow. Go.

Three words that motivate action. Action that flows from the activity of faith and grace in our lives. As we follow Jesus together, we believe this following is strengthened and encouraged through these activities of belonging, growing, and going. It is our hope that we will discover the fullness and wholeness of life through Christ as we seek to belong in community, grow in becoming more like Jesus and then go and proclaim His already not yet kingdom to the world!


Belong

We believe that belonging in community is the first step in our journey with God and that it is through real relationship with Jesus and others that God transforms us into His likeness. How do you feel you belong?

Belong Assessment

Grow

We believe that growing in faith is a journey of choosing God’s way over our way and in so doing, position our lives to experience relationship with Jesus and encounter a change where our lives begin to look like His.

Grow Assessment

Go

We believe God created humans to be in relationship with Him and through the restoration of that relationship in Jesus we are called to join Him in making all things new, bringing heaven to earth right here, right now.

Go Assessment

REAL | TRANSFORMED | CONNECTED | POURED OUT

Connect & Serve

We believe that connecting as a community and loving others is vital to spiritual health and maturity. In fact we believe it’s God’s obsession for us to discover this connection and love of others. We want to challenge you to join us in loving Him and others through connecting & serving.

Kids & Teens

We believe in the next generation!
It is our passion and desire to provide a safe, fun, and nurturing environment for your child to encounter God’s love.

Monthly Parent Cue (December’16)


Parent Cue LIVE

Parent Cue Live is a podcast produced by Orange and designed to help parents do family better. Our team strives to help parents and church leaders understand how, by combining their influences, they can accomplish more for the spiritual well-being of a child than either could individually.

The Breakdown

Every volunteer of Kidz Zone has passed a background check and completed safety training.  Throughout Kidz Zone, you will notice that there are security cameras in every room, adding another level of accountability.  With our check in and check out procedures, we are confident that children leave only with parents or parent-authorized adults.

Your child will have fun and learn about God in age appropriate classes: 0-2, 3-4, k-5th.

We are in this together!

We believe church should be a place where families grow and connect together in their faith!  Because of this, at Living Hope, the kids and adults are learning together!

  • Multigen service
  • Virtue of the month
  • Table talks
  • Family service opportunities

Teen Group

Our Ministry Philosophy

We believe our teens have a very important part in God’s mission to change the world!  A loving group of adults from Living Hope have committed to pouring out their lives to our teens in order to explore that mission and live life together.  Each Sunday night from 6:30-8pm our teens and adults gather to be Real, Transformed, Connected & Poured Out (and to have fun together!) to explore God’s mission for the world and our teens lives.

Meeting Times

Sunday Evenings
6:30-8pm

Say What?!

October/November 2016

Ever had that moment when you heard something crazy and it took a minute to register how crazy it actually was? Jesus often said things that evoke that sort of reaction from us. What if Jesus could open our eyes and move our perception of crazy-talk into truth-talk?

You are invited this Sunday at 10:30am.

Give

The irrational generosity of everyday people who attend Living Hope
fuels the incredible life change that we experience here.

IN PERSON

Give during our Sunday morning worship service.  Each Sunday, we set aside time to worship through giving with two convenient places to give: in the basket that is passed during the service or in the giving box located next to the Prayer Room in the lobby.

ONLINE

Give from your smartphone, tablet, or desktop from anywhere, anytime! Create a profile once and you can securely save your credit card or bank account info so you can conveniently give a one-time gift or set up recurring donations, all while being able to track your giving history.

GIVE ONLINE

Young and old, we are growing together in love as we pursue the dream God has given us. Come join us in our journey. We can't wait to meet you!
