What happens at Community of Hope from Memorial Day through Labor Day?
Over the summer join us from 9-9:45 am for breakfast. We have one worship service at 10 am. There is also childcare available.
What is the difference between the 9 am and 11 am service (Labor Day through Memorial Day)?
The 9 and 11 am worship services are blended with songs/hymns/prayers. Kids Church and Youth Bible Study take place in between the two worship services at 10 am.
How long is the worship service and what happens?
Each worship service lasts about an hour. After we sing several songs the children are invited forward for a short children’s message. Pastor then shares a message for today’s living from the Scriptures (about 25 minutes long) that applies God’s Word to our everyday lives.
What about communion?
We celebrate communion on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month at both services. Anyone with a humble and thankful heart for the Lord is invited to come forward and receive communion.
Do you take an offering?
The Sunday offering is an opportunity for members and regular attenders to give. As a guest, please do not feel an obligation to give anything; your attendance is gift enough.
What do kids do in worship?
We begin worship services with several songs that kids can join in and sing. After about 20 minutes we have a children’s message, a time for kids to come forward for a few minutes to hear a special message designed for them. Then they can join their parents again, or kids are invited to head out for childcare, a time where they can watch a video, do a craft, play, and have a snack until the service is over. Childcare is designed for kids PreK through 5th grade. Children are always welcome in the worship service. We will have coloring clipboards available for them if they choose to use them.
