"Hope Presbyterian Church offers me the temple to worship, but the contents of the church are the guiding force to lead my life as a Christian. Personally, I have a lot to learn and much more to practice, but I know that Hope will continue to provide the lessons and models I need. I read once that church is a little piece of Heaven that God gives to people, and 'it's a little window of the love, understanding, and sweet fellowship that awaits us in Heaven.' Thankfully, Hope Presbyterian Church is my temple and teacher."
- Jon and Sue Roberts


"Hope Church is many things to me. It is a place where I have made many good friends. By getting to know the people of Hope through fellowship, classes, small groups, mission projects, and other activities, they have become a family to me."
