Hope Church provides a wonderful VBS each summer.
This year's VBS is scheduled for the last week in July.
Christian Brigade Ministry
Hope has been involved with Christian Brigade Ministries for many years. Boys brigade meets Monday nights at the church from 6:30 - 8:00 pm for games, study, and preparation for camps and competitions. The boys group on Wednesday nights use the Tree Climbers and Stockade materials.
We gather on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:00 pm to fellowship and study. There is one girls' group and one boys' group for children in grades 1-5. The Hope Youth Group also meets for children in grades 6 - 12. The adults split their time, beginning with a time of prayer in the chapel from 6:30 -7:00 (you can come pray silently or aloud or just rest in God's presence). From 7:00 - 8:00 pm the adults then engage in an informal DVD-based curriculum study.
Women from the church attend the annual Women Anew Conference held at Sawmill Creek Resort in Huron, Ohio.
Hope has both a choir and a choral praise team.
Choir practice is held Thursday evenings at 7:00.
The praise team usually practices at 8:30 am Sundays.
All are welcome. See Marcia Oeffner. We also have brought back a new children's choir for 2014. They
practice on occasion during the Sunday School hour.
Hope Youth Group
Hope Youth Group meets on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m and Sunday morning at 9:30 am for youth in grades 6 through 12. Dawn and Shaun Meehan, Mike Fast and Jamie Lebold serve as our youth leaders. The goal is to have the youth connect in four ways: With one another in fellowship, with God in discipleship, with the church body in worship, and with the community in stewardship and service.
During the week there are other discipleship and fellowship opportunities. There is a women's Bible study held on Tuesday mornings at 10:00 am. A young adult small group meets twice a month in various people's homes as well.
