Ministries

Alpha Course
Would you like to explore the Christian life, but not sure where to begin? Check out our Alpha course.

One-on-One Disciple-making
Jesus had the twelve. Barnabas had Paul. Paul had Timothy. Biblical truth is best learned in the context of relationships. For this reason, we want to help ground people in the basics of the Christian life through meeting with someone one-on-one or couple-to-couple. Whether over lunch or a cup of coffee, together they can go through some important Biblical truths to make sure their relationship with God is built on a strong foundation. For more information visits our "One-on-One Disciple-making" page or contact Wayne Okamoto at 847.265.0551 or
wayne@go2hope.org.

Hope’s Small Groups
We have a number of small groups at Hope including our Home Groups, Men’s Groups, and Women’s groups. For more information about these small groups, visit our “How to Connect” page.

Children’s ministries (Carpenters Crew)
We have a fun, engaging children’s ministry called the "Carpenter’s Crew" and a wonderful, safe nursery/preschool! Our nursery/preschool is available during the entire worship service for children ages 0-5, though most parents desire to keep their children in the service until the message time. During the message, our Carpenter’s Crew (children 1st through 5th grade) leave the main worship service for their own teaching time. It’s a fun environment for your child to learn more about God through people who love and care about them! The purpose of the Carpenter's Crew is to teach God's word in an applicable way, minister to the children so that they may be spiritually and emotionally healthy through the power of Jesus Christ, and equip them to be active members of His Kingdom here on earth. For more information, please contact Wayne Okamoto (wayne@go2hope.org).

Youth Ministries (grades 6th-12th)
Hey! After the worship time on Sunday morning, we move to our own interactive teaching time. We discuss real life issues from a Biblical perspective.

This spring (2017) we are in the process of looking for a youth intern to lead us.  We also hope to tie into a larger youth group in one of the local churches in the near future.  If you have questions about our group or upcoming activities, please contact Tony Raymond (youth@go2hope.org).

Prayer ministries
  • Evening of Worship & Prayer On the second Friday of the month at 7 PM, we meet together as a church to worship and pray in someone’s home. In this very casual atmosphere, we pray for both church needs and individual needs. It’s been exciting to watch God as He has answered so many of our prayers! Come join us! To find out where we will meet next month, please check go2hope.org/calendar or the latest worship program.
  • Sunday Morning Prayer Before each worship service, we gather together to pray for the upcoming service. It’s a great opportunity to ask God to meet us and move powerfully in our worship service. We meet in the faculty staff room from 8:45-9:15 a.m. For more information, please contact Gail Seiver (info@go2hope.org).
  • Mighty Men of Hope Prayer We meet every Sunday in the commons (at Lakes HS) 9:00-9:30am to pray for each other and for Hope. Join us!
  • Hope email prayer chain If you would like to submit or receive prayer requests via email, please send your request to prayer@go2hope.org.

For more information on all these prayer opportunities Please contact us at info@go2hope.org.

ShareFest
God has called us to show the love of Christ to those who have been forgotten. Every fall we join with other churches in serving our community. ShareFest is a movement of over 10 local churches and Christian organizations committed to serving our community in the name of Jesus. ShareFest volunteers have collected food for local food pantries, made bunk beds for those in need, distributed used furniture, appliances and computers, given blood, and served the elderly in helping them with winterizing their homes and doing minor home repairs. It’s a great opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus. For more information please see our worship programs in the fall.
