  • Kids & Teens

    Kids are really important to us, so we do everything we can to make sure their time is well spent keeping active and learning,  they are safe, and we even throw in some fun! 

    We have a check-in system, so you can check them in when you arrive and get them back at the end of the morning. As you see above they are released back to the classrooms with adult supervision right before the sermon. 

    Students Middle School Age and older join the adults for the main weekend gatherings and in HOPE Communities but have a Youth Fellowship designed just for them on Wednesdays at 6PM, and have other events throughout the month. 

  • Sacraments

    Sometimes they are called "ordinances". We believe from the scriptures and have experienced that God wants to interact with His children in the small things, as well as the big life moments. Some of these rites are a natural part of the rhythm of our lives and some are created with intent. We do our best to celebrate and/or remember them all. One of the ways we do this is through the Sacraments, key moments in the life of the church, and the journey of the believer where GOD shows up as we practice symbolic acts. We practice the following: 

    • Believer's Baptism
    • The Lord's Table (sometimes called Communion, the Lord's Supper or the Eucharist)  
    • Confirmation (to affirm the witness of the indwelling Holy Spirit)
    • Forgiveness (which in its fullness has aspects of confessionrepentanceredemption & reconciliation)
    • Anointing the Sick (with oil)
    • Laying on of Hands (Appointing & setting apart our leaders)
    • Rites of Passage (Marriage, Baby dedications, Birthdays, Adulthood/Celibacy, Funerals, and others).
