Sunday School

.. is every Sunday but we kick off a new year each September. We are excited to be offering a one room Sunday school for children ages 3 thru 5th grade.  Please make sure you fill out an updated registration form for the 2019/2020 year.  The children will work together on some projects and some will be coordinated to be more age specific. This class will give the kids and opportunity to make friends and grow together as their own unique fellowship group!

Phusion/ Youth Sunday School

We are designing a new youth program for youth from 6th to 12th grade. Phusion will start in September with a variety of special programs from a group breakfast and mission projects.  We are accepting applications for a youth leader and hope to have that person within the next few months. The Board of Trustees prefers to hire individuals that are not church members for paid positions. We are always looking for volunteers that are committed and work well with youth. Once we hire our new staff person the group will include faith discussions along with special events. The youth of Hope Church are a committed and welcoming group of youth. Visitors are always welcomed!

Upcoming Community Events

at Hope UCC


Are You Ready To Have A Picnic?


Come and join us for “Trunk and Lunch!” picnic. So, what does that mean? This will work very similar to our Trunk or Treat.


We will gather outside in our Church parking lot on Sunday, July 12th at 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.


What do I need to bring? You will need to bring your own lunch (sandwich, submarine, salad etc.).  Please remember to bring your condiments, beverage, plates, silverware, anything you will need to eat your lunch.  You will also need a lawn chair to sit on.


How will this be done? We will have everyone park in our lot, using every other parking space to maintain social distance. 

You can sit in your lawn chair at your car. You will need to wear a mask!!


The church will not be open.  We are attempting to do this safely and within the guidelines of social distancing. 


Please come and have some fun and see the familiar faces you have been missing.
