a hope church sunday meeting
Who's Who?

Hope Church is currently in transition as we seek a team leader who will be paid part-time. We hope to have someone in place in the Spring, but even then we will not have a full-time 'minister' or 'pastor'. We see this as a strength, not a weakness, because it emphasises the fact that every member of the church needs to play a full and active part.
