What's new at Hope.

  1. Stand in Prayer with Metropolitan AME Congregation

    Community Updates

    Dearly Beloved,

    Tomorrow night, Wednesday, June 24, at 7:00 p.m. there will be a city-wide prayer meeting at the Metropolitan AME church located at 1101 East 10th Street.

    Along with several other pastors in the city, I will be helping to lead concerted prayers for the unity of our city in support of the African Methodist Episcopal congregation in Charleston that suffered violence a week ago when nine people were gunned down during a prayer gathering.

    Would you please consider altering your plans at this late hour and join us?
