Dear People of Hope,

This past Sunday, young voices read scripture, shared stories and drawings in worship.  We have a specifically family-friendly worship from time to time on zoom.  We don't do this because children are fun and we all enjoy their enhanced participation, though this is true.  We host family-friendly worship primarily because children are a part of our worship community- and a traditional zoom worship is especially challenging for young children to follow.

When we say "All are Welcome," we acknowledge that some people connect more easily than others.  When we host family-friendly worship, many of us realize we enjoy songs that are easy enough to learn by heart, many of us benefit from more participation in prayer.  Welcoming more people more deeply is indeed good for all of us.

Thank you for being a welcoming community.

Thank be to God,
   Pastor Julie

Outdoor Communion returns
various dates, times, locations


This Spring Hope will host several opportunities for outdoor prayer and communion, both at Hope and at various front yards around the area.  Hosting is easy- you simply provide the location with plenty of space and easy parking.  No snacks, no bathrooms, no chairs- just space.  If you would like to host a group in your neighborhood, contact Pastor Julie.
Property Development Discernment Process
Stay tuned- next-steps coming soon!


Thank you to everyone who has participated in small or large group discussions and discernment.  Hope continues discernment, research and planning around this proposed development.  Council meets this week to synthesize what we've heard and learned so far.  Council will plan next steps including hiring professionals.
