Wherever you are in your faith journey, Hope United Methodist Church welcomes and affirms all persons without regard to any thing which threatens to divide God’s family.  We are a caring church; we commit ourselves to loving acts of invitation, hospitality and reconciliation, providing ministry to, for and with all persons.
I attended a funeral at Hope for a friend. I really enjoyed the service and that led me to joining Hope church.

I love the tradition of music at Hope.  Music is lifted in praise to God through the choirs, chimes, children, instrumentalist and dance. Truly the presence of the Lord is felt through the music.

I recently came to the Distribution Center at Hope following the Tornado. I came feeling uneasy about asking for help but I had lost so much and needed help for my family. I was greeted with smiles, assurances and felt very welcome. I left feeling grateful and a little less overwhelmed by my situation.

Hope is the most welcoming church I have attended.

I was a former Wonderful Wednesday student. My child will be eligible next year and I’m excited that she will be able to participate. It’s a safe place to go where you feel that the adults care. The program helps kids get a good start. Wonderful Wednesday is awesome.
