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

We are on a journey of encountering the life-transforming power of God and believe that the purpose of this journey is for all disciples of Jesus to discover how they were created to be real, transformed, connected and poured out.

Real.

Because we all have brokenness in our lives, we believe that we should not hide the areas of our life that God desires to heal. By sharing our stories, we build community and discover healing.

Transformed.

We are on a journey of following in the footsteps of Jesus. The more we follow Jesus, the more the Holy Spirit will mature us as His followers and transform us into His likeness.

Connected.

Community is best lived out as we understand that just as Jesus belonged in community with the Father and the Spirit, we belong to one another. We want to rediscover the essence of community and live together in a unified way.

Poured Out.

We are pouring out our lives for others just as Jesus poured out His life for us. We believe that “little things done with great love will change the world.” As we pour out our lives for others, we believe that God is working to draw people to Himself.

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.

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.

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!

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.

The Greatest Sermon Ever:
Kingdom Now

Summer 2015

This summer, we will journey through the Sermon on the Mount together.  This famous sermon is a great summary into Jesus’ mission in just three chapters of Matthew.  In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus describes what our life should be like while we live in faith, in thoughts, words and actions.  Join us as we journey up the mountain in three movements: Kingdom Now, Flipped, and Relate(able).

You are invited this Sunday at 9:30 or 11am.

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.
