Christmas Eve Services


Please join us for candelight services at either 6:30pm or 11:00pm on  Tuesday December 24th.


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


Join us on December 22nd at 4pm

for a "Blue Christmas" Service

Christmas can be a painful time for some. The constant refrains on radio and television, in shopping malls, about the happiness of the season, about getting together with family and friends, reminds many people of what they have lost. For those suffering from the death of loved ones, dealing with a recent break-up or divorce, struggling to find employment, dealing with depression or a family crisis, this can be a very isolated and dark time.  We need to know that we are not alone. We need encouragement. Pastor Meg invites you to this special holiday service designed for those for whom the season is a struggle.  If you have undergone a difficult loss, transition, or life change, the church cares about you and invites you to a special time of music and worship. We are offering a Blue Christmas Service on Sunday, December 22 at 4pm.  Please invite your friends and family who might benefit from this service.
