What's new at Hope.

  1. Arts Ministry Update

    The bi-monthly 1st & 3rd Weeks Arts Hope Group will INFORMALLY meet at Genuine Joe’s Coffee Shop for December. Same time as regularly scheduled, but without childcare provided.

    December 8th is a new Gallery Reception at Hope Chapel’s Gallery Space, from 7-9 PM. You can find details on Hope.Orgcalendar, and likewise on HopeArts.Org.

    Today’s writing prompt(s) <answer in a reply comment, or on Realm Arts Group in the comment section> : does Art speak beyond languages only to artists, or even to non-artists? Can those who don’t understand art (ie non-artists) still profit from Art?

  2. International Reception- Dec 9

    We are thrilled to have three of our visiting overseas workers with us on Sunday, December 9, at Hope Chapel. We will host a luncheon after service, inside the sanctuary, to hear briefly from them and have an open time of questions and answers. Please join us for lunch, and to bless our friends with prayer! RSVP on Realm by Dec 6, or email

  3. Our dear brother, John Bibee, is with the Lord. Memorial Service in 2019

    From his daughter, Maria:

    Our hearts are broken and yet we have hope that we will meet again and that today he is dancing on streets of gold.

    Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.” John 11:25-26

    I would like to thank all of those friends and family who have been with us during this battle over the past year and a half – praying, cooking meals, sitting with Dad during chemo appointments (the list goes on) – and also those who came to see him this past week to sing to him, tell him how much he meant to you, share memories… Our family is so very grateful for your support and care, and seeing the outpouring of love towards him has brought great comfort to us all.

    Our family plans to have a memorial service at a later date, perhaps in the new year and we would love to have you there to reflect on and celebrate his life. I will share details about this service when the time comes. Finally, his wishes were to be cremated and buried in a family plot in Missouri, which will also take place at a later date.

    With all our love, we miss you, Dad.

    Hope Chapel will post information here at and on our Facebook page when the memorial service is scheduled.

  4. Women of Hope Retreat 2019

    Women of Hope Retreat 2019, February 22 – 24th @ Jordan Ranch

    Why Retreat? We are glad you asked! Retreat is not just a time to get a way, but it is also a time to grow together and in our relationship with God. It is for the focused single lady pursuing her career, the widow who needs to connect with friends, the grandmother who has so much she wants to share, the married woman without kids who just wants to take off her hills and relax. The college student drowned in midterms who needs to recharge, and yes even for the busy and tired momma. Every year we have the opportunity to leave our regular routines, kick up our feet, make new friends, catch up with old ones, and hear more about Gods heart for his daughters.

    Come join us for a weekend of fun, authenticity, and growth. We’d like to encourage you to bring a friend who has never attended retreat. With only 73 onsite spots they will fill up quickly. Reserve yours and a friends today with a $50 deposit.
