What to Expect
Welcome to Living Hope!
At Living Hope, we strive to worship God with every aspect of our lives as we engage our community and its culture, as we laugh and eat good food with friends, and as we serve each other, our city, and our Saviour. We want you to experience that with us! If you're new, we realize that everyone is at a different place in their spiritual journey and we know how uncomfortable churches can feel when you are checking things out for the first time. We hope that Living Hope never feels that way to you, so if you’re new to Living Hope and plan to visit on Sunday, here are some practical things you’ll want to know:
- When you enter the doors of our church for one of our Sunday worship services, you will be welcomed by one of our greeters. There you may find a place to hang your coats, use the restrooms, socialize before the service, or proceed directly into the sanctuary.
- Upon entering the sanctuary within the church, an usher will provide you with a bulletin for the service and can assist you with any questions, or just help you find a seat. Living Hope is an accessible facility. If you require wheelchair access, designated parking or seating, directions to our accessible restrooms, hearing aides, or additional assistance, please don’t hesitate to ask one of our greeters or ushers.
Upreach: The worship services at Living Hope fuel the mission of our church–to glorify God as we make disciples of all nations. When we come together in a worship gathering, we praise God for what He has done and is doing in our lives and the lives of others, we petition Him in prayer and hear His voice as we pray, and we learn God's vision for our lives and how to follow His direction through the study of His Word.
Corporate worship is a rhythm of revelation and response. That is, when we gather, we listen to revelation from God's Word through music, reading His Word, and preaching, and we respond not only with our voices in prayer and song, but with our lives.
Hope Kids Ministry: Child care offered during the worship services provides a safe and fun environment for your young children, if you prefer, or you may take your children into the worship services with you. Sunday School following the second worship service provides fun and instruction for children ages 4 to 12.
Prayer: For prayer needs or pastoral questions, assistance is available through consistory care. If you have an immediate need, just make your way to the area in the front of the sanctuary and ask for the Pastor or an Elder.
Welcome to Living Hope... We consider it a privilege to serve you!
