Community Updates

Hope community happenings.

  1. What to Expect on Sunday–Parents

    The remodel is over and all of our kids’ classes are being held in the education wing of our main building again. Please join us for the fun as we reacquaint ourselves with the familiar spaces that are new again.

    Your first stop on Sunday morning should be at a HopeKids Check In Kiosk. You will find one in the Family Room and another in the coffee shop. Print out name tags for each of your kids fifth grade and younger. Each child in our program needs to wear a nametag to class.

    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.

    During the summer, Sunday classes for fours and younger begin at 9:55. Kindergarten and older classes begin after families worship together.

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

    Come join the new and make us newer still!

  3. Matt Ryniker Ordination

    Let’s Join in Celebration

    Matthew Ryniker Ordination and Cake Reception on Sunday, April 28th, 10AM

    Matt is changing positions at Hope Chapel and becomes our Associate Pastor this Sunday, April 28th in the 10AM serviceafter he’s ordained.

    Though the youth will miss him in his role as youth pastor, he’ll pick up other responsibilities that bring his many skills and gifts to bear for the entire congregation; he’s already been doing that as Outreach pastor. Mandy Ryniker finishes her nursing training in the next week and graduates also. They are together ready to walk in this new role.

    Our Hopekids’ classes begin at 10AM. They’ll come back in at the end of the service so they don’t miss Matt’s ordination. Older kids can either sit on the floor up front or go be seated with their parents.

    Come celebrate the gift that Matt is to Hope! A cake reception follows.
