Testimonials

"I felt there was something missing or absent within. I would ask myself, 'Why am I here? What is my purpose in life? Is this all there is? Is there not more to me than just being here?' Every time I drove on Q Street, I would whisper quietly to myself, “You must check out that Hope Church.” I finally walked through those big glass doors the summer of 2016. That was it. The sermon I heard that day and the following weeks were literally speaking to me directly and loudly: As if the sermons were for my ears only. I remember going home that first Sunday feeling good, but also thinking about what the sermon was saying to me. It did not take me long to know that is where I needed to be. The door was open, the people inside were kind and welcoming. I felt unconditional love, peace, the feeling of belonging. I wanted to serve. I wanted to learn and grow stronger spiritually. God is meant to be in my life permanently, not part-time but full time. God brought me to Hope and gave me the courage to take the steps to walk-in. I now know that missing, absent feeling was GOD. "

"My husband and I have been attending Hope regularly for just over a year and I became a member around six months ago. We felt at home with Hope right away. I grew up in a small town and in an even smaller church. Moving to Omaha was a big change and it was overwhelming to me. Hope has that small town church feel to it where everyone knows each other, we share our joys and struggles with each other, and we feel like we really matter to this community. My husband grew up Catholic and has expressed how welcomed he's felt here every Sunday, even though he's not a formal member. I love to knit and have made a close group of friends with the ladies of the prayer shawl knitting group. This spring I was injured, needed surgery, and was off work for several weeks. We were blessed when members at Hope volunteered to bring us meals, gave me rides to church when I was unable to drive, helped us move from our apartment to a house, and continued to check up on my progress months after my surgery. We look forward to continue growing our faith, volunteering and participating in the numerous outreach programs, and continuing to build and foster relationships with the members here at Hope."
