Hope Church Newsletters - Upcoming Activities And Events
We publish a "Hope's Happenings" newsletter each Thursday, and we add it to the Newsletters page of this website and send it via email to members, attenders and other friends of Hope Church. It is the absolute best resource for current information about that Sunday's worship service plus the upcoming week's events, meetings and activities.
We also produce a monthly "Hope's Happenings" newsletter that is comparable to a magazine - it has stories, graphics, pictures and articles, news from groups and missions at Hope Church and other interesting features. It includes announcements and details of Hope Church events and activities that are planned in the weeks and months to come. A limited number of printed copies of the monthly newsletter are available at the church.
Both the weekly and monthly "Hope's Happenings" are available on the Newsletters page of this website.

Each Sunday our Praise Team leads the congregation in contemporary praise songs, plus we have readings from the Bible, prayer and special music, and we're blessed each week by Pastor Sharon Barley's scripture-based messages and teachings from God's word.

Snow Policy: What Happens At Hope Church In Bad Weather?
