What can I expect?

How long is a HOPE for TOday CHURCH service?

In total, a Hope for Today Church service is about 60 minutes in length. Feel free to come and go as you need, as we do not have a strict order of service. We do this because we want to give much time for Jesus to move in our midst. After all, we are gathering to worship Jesus and encounter his presence, right?

Don't get us wrong, we have many people who have put time and energy into getting things ready for our gathering. Yet, in all our preparation our desire remains the same, we come wanting to encounter Jesus. This sounds like a great way to spend a brief amount of time together on Sundays.


Our services do not follow a specific framework. With that in mind, we usually begin with the worship band leading the church in worship through music; song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. We are an expressive church, yet we don't impose that on anyone. All expressions are welcome!

After the music portion of the service is complete, one of our pastors will share an encouraging and hope-filled message. We also offer a time of prayer that we call ministry time, for whoever is interested.

Following the service, coffee and snacks will be available. This is a great time to mingle and meet new people. As a church family, we don't desire to hurry off after service, but we understand everyone's schedule is different - so feel free to linger after the service or head out, whichever works for you.

It's our prayer and desire that you feel at home. We believe there is a church for everyone - a 'fit'. We hope, Hope For Today is for you!

What's the culture like at Hope Church?

Sundays at Hope For Today are passionate, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest. We look forward to seeing you!

What about my kids?

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week and at Hope for Today Kids we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Kids program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself a few extra minutes to get signed in for the Hope for Today Kids experience. Hope Kids is offered at every service for kids K through Grade 6.
