What's new at Hope.

  1. Global Christmas is Here!

    It’s the season to bless our workers, both here and abroad, by remembering them and sending gifts.

    Write a note! 

    There will be stationary supplied in the coffee area for you to write a greeting or a blessing to a worker. HGT will collect these and mail them off.

    Give a gift!

    Out of the side doors of the sanctuary, under the stairs, there are ornaments you can pull off the wall and place in the envelope provided (be sure to lift them up in a quick prayer while you do this!). HGT will collect these and record the amounts after each service. Please be sure to mark the amount and your name on the envelope.

    Thank you so much for thinking, praying, and giving towards our workers! We pray this season will be a blessing to you and your family, as well!

     

  2. Annual Christmas Program coming on December 8- what parents need to know

    Now that we have our building back, the kids get to participate in the Annual Hope Christmas Program and Party again! We’ve been practicing on Sunday mornings and everyone is excited.

    Here’s what parents need to know:

    There is no dress code for the program, but preschoolers can dress up as either an angel, a shepherd or a wise man for their song. Elementary kids can wear what you want them to wear.

    Kids will sit with parents for the whole program this year. We’ll just call them up when it’s time for their song.

    Please be in the sanctuary by 4pm on December 8 so we can run through details before the program begins.

    Contact Hala if you have questions.

  3. What to Expect on Sundays during Advent–Parents

    Thanks for visiting our page! The Advent season at Hope Chapel is wonderful and we’d love for you and your children to come join us this weekend. Our kids’ class pattern during Advent is a little different from the rest of the year, allowing time for families to worship together before kids head off to class.

    When you arrive at Hope, look for someone wearing a blue or a red HopeKids t-shirt. They’ll show you where the check in kiosks are located and help you get your kids checked in. Once your kids are checked in, they’ll all stay with you until after the first section (worship and communion) of the service is over. It will be very clear when it’s time for the kids to head to class, don’t worry.

    Classes for kids in Kindergarten and younger are on the ground floor. The rooms are marked to make it simple to find the one you need. Elementary classes are held upstairs and are also labeled.

    As always, there will be friendly people in HopeKids t-shirts to help you in any way needed.

  4. Farewell to the Cruzes

    Our time with José and Betsy Cruz has come to a close as they will be moving to Dallas to continue their work. We are sad to see them go, but so excited for what God has in store for them in their new environment! Hope Chapel will continue to love and pray for them and we’ll always welcome them home.

    Please join us for a cake reception after the service on December 1 to love on them and wish them well. If you’d like to send them off with notes of encouragment and words from the Lord they will happily receive them!
