Joy to the World

Celebrate Christmas at Hope! Join us as we celebrate the greatest gift we’ve ever been given: Jesus Christ! With five services, we’ve made sure there is plenty of room to invite your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to hear the Christmas story like never before. Come and see for yourself how a little baby born in a manger changes everything … bringing HOPE to you and to me!
