That's great! In fact we believe that this is an absolutely essential part of life as a Christian. The Bible teaches us that one of the most central aspects of "church" is the community found between believers. We are called to do life together, love one another like a family, pray together, and to encourage each other to continue on the common mission. All of this is difficult if not  impossible, to accomplish on Sunday mornings alone. That's why we want EVERY ONE who calls our church home, to have a way to meet in smaller, more intimate, groups on a weekly basis. Join a small group, become a part of a ministry team (find out more below), come to high school youth group, get in touch with our pastor, and if none of these options are possible for you right now come to the christian formation hour prior to the service (9:30am).

Ministry Teams at Hope are the ways we organize our church to reach out to the local community. When you sign up for a given ministry team you will be on the team with ownership of that section of the church. The seven teams are narrow enough to engage people's gifting and interest and wide enough to provide for anything that might arise. Read the descriptions/watch the video below to see where you might fit in at Hope. 

P.S. Don't worry about being locked in to a team forever. We plan to shuffle up ministry teams regularly and of course you are encouraged to try out some or all of them before making a commitment to serving regularly. 

  • Hospitality

    We are called as Christians to practice Hospitality  and welcome visitors as best as we can. We value visitors so much actually we have an entire team dedicated to welcoming them and making sure they feel like Hope is their home; whether it is their first or their 101st Sunday. (Acts 15:4)

  • Compassion

    It should go without saying that churches should practice compassion. For us at Hope this is a non negotiable element in being the body of Christ. We believe everyone in our church is called to care for the "Least of these" but our Compassion team organizes it all. (Matt. 25:45)

  • Children

    We want a team devoted to our kids because we believe they are our greatest asset and responsibility. We learn from and with our kids at Hope and we put committed, gifted, and vetted volunteers in their lives to encourage and support their spiritual development from birth to adulthood. (Matt. 19:14) 

  • Caregiving

    Once you make a commitment to Hope, we make a commitment to you to walk with you and care for you as long as this is your home church. Sick? Caregiving will bring you a meal. Need prayer? Caregiving will be there. Shut in? You're still part of Hope and Caregiving will make sure you know that to be true. (Jam. 5:14) 

  • Arts and communications

    We live in a digital age, an information age. We believe the message of Jesus and the wisdom of scripture is not only still applicable but needed more than ever. Our Arts and Communications Team is leveraging technology to share the message of Jesus on Sunday morning and to the ends of the earth (Matt 28:19) 

  • Facilities

    Reality of life: somebody has to take care of the building. Our goal with facilities is to take what is a burden to most churches: a building, and turn it into a ministry asset for accomplishing out mission and seeing our vision for the Kingdom of God come into clearer focus. (Acts 4:34)

  • Finance

    Jesus talks about money A LOT. Actually, if you count, he uses money as an illustration or speaks directly about it more than any other subject! That means that we have to respect and guard ourselves when dealing with Money. It would be easy just to 'wing it' but we care because we know we are managing God's accounts. (Luke 16:9)

So what are Ministry Teams?
