"We started looking for a church as the birth of our first child approached, and have been blessed to be a part of the Hope family for 8 years now. We have grown spiritually as we've become more involved at Hope and we're delighted that both our kids have a church home that they enjoy attending."
- Shawn and Cindy Williams


"I came to Hope out of convenience, but realized quickly, that for me, it's about much more than convenience. I was captivated by Pastor Dave, his weekly message and his presentation of God's word. Eleven years after I first walked in the doors, I remain at Hope because of Pastor Dave and the relationships I've established with others congregants."
