the Body of Christ, to be in harmony with Christ’s teaching to love God and love our neighbors as we love ourselves.
a community of faith that offers an authentic welcome!

100 year history of blending tradition with vision and successful innovative ministry. We are an inclusive family of God where members and friends join together in times of joy and sorrow and where love, prayer, and support are offered and relationships flourish.

a community of faith within which families of one and families of many can join in the faith journey in discerning love, birth, loss and even death in the hope filled and healing love of God that we have come to know and embrace through Jesus Christ.
Worship at Hope UCC is:
central to our congregational life together. However, fellowship extends our worship. Bible studies, visitation ministry, faith formation programs, men’s and women’s groups, youth group, and so many other ministries all contribute to the wholeness of being followers of the living Christ.
