What's new at Hope.

  1. HopeKids Sunday Classes Return to Hope Chapel’s Campus

    Beginning on August 6, HopeKids’ classes will return to the Hope Chapel campus. Our beloved pastors have vacated their offices and we will use them as our classrooms while the building is being renovated.

    Children aged four and under can go to their classes in the Light House beginning at 9:45. Older children will worship with their parents and then be released to their classes.

    Remember that we use the check in app and you can check your children into their classrooms before you arrive at Hope on Sunday. Here is a short tutorial for parents trying to log in to Kidddo for the first time.

  2. World Welcome Opportunities!

    The end of summer is near, and with that comes a rush of University students back into Austin gearing up for another year. Around 6000 of these students come from all over the world and have basic needs that we can meet as the hands and feet of Jesus.

    August Airport Pickups:

    Many of these students are in need of transportation from the airport to their housing, and we can assign you one or more students to greet with a friendly and warm smile! Hope has already received some requests, so sign up now to show some practical love.

    Friendship Family/ Individual:

    You can become a support and a friend to one, or many, international students looking for a connection! Show them around Austin, invite them into your home for a meal, take them grocery shopping… there are many ways to connect with a student!

    ESL Conversation Partners or English classes:

    You can meet with a student to intentionally help them practice their English, or take on a group of students and lead an English class. Hope Chapel has plenty of resources for this, so teaching degree not required.

    World Welcome will also be facilitating regular gatherings for international students interested in staying connected. We would love to have Hope-ites participating in these activities as well.
