Upcoming Events

We’re not meeting in person, but you can still worship with us. Worship Services begin online at 9:00 a.m. Watch us on YouTube.

Salvation Army Winter Night Watch – Every winter, the Salvation Army sends out three vans each evening Monday through Friday to feed and clothe the homeless.  One goes to South Omaha, one goes to North Omaha, and a third goes to Central Omaha. Each van makes two or three stops to feed the hungry and hand out coats, socks, gloves, hats, scarves, and blankets to those in need.  Once again, we will be collecting socks, coats, gloves, mittens, hats for distribution during Salvation Army Winter Night Watch to our brothers and sisters in Omaha who don’t have these vital clothing items to protect them against the Nebraska cold.  In previous years, the generous people of Hope Church have donated a total of nearly 400 pairs of socks, coats, hats and mittens.  Let’s see if we can do that and more this year!

You can either take your donations directly to the  Salvation Army Disaster Garage at 10629 Burt Street, or there will be a barrel out in the lobby in November to collect socks, mittens, gloves, hats and coats. Especially needed are men’s sizes XL, 2XL and 3XL.

Virtual education for all ages begins  at 10:30 a.m. Contact the Christian Education Office for details.

Advent Bible Studies

This year, more than ever, so many of us are having a hard time finding joy and excitement for the Advent season. If this is you, please join us for a weekly Zoom gathering to go through “A Weary World: Reflections for a Blue Christmas” by Kathy Escobar.

This book has 4 weeks of daily readings. We’ll gather via Zoom each Wednesday night for a group discussion and to support one another. This is open to anyone who would like to attend, even if you can’t make it to all four sessions. We’ll create a safe space for anyone who needs some extra support during this season.

If you would like to purchase the book, it is available as paperback ($13) and e-book ($8.99) from Amazon, and paperback ($13) from Cokebury or PCUSA..  For more information contact Lori at 402-505-1082.

Testimonials

"We started to look for a church when we moved to Omaha. We tried many different churches around Omaha but Pastor Dave's message and the feeling we had when we attended service at Hope kept us coming back. The church's openness to different beliefs and ability to challenge our perspective, as well as the many opportunities to get involved, have confirmed our choice to join the Hope family. "
-Tyler and Kelsey Thraen

 

"I joined Hope 18 years ago, motivated by my desire to find a place where I could raise my children in a Christian environment. Since that time, not only has Hope taught me to grow, explore and walk my own faith, I’ve witnessed my children develop, grow and walk their faith through different threads of their lives. As a parent, I am eternally grateful to the people and ministry of Hope for the myriad of parts so many people played in that journey. Since my mom is also a member and my daughter is now a mother herself, I’m joyful that four generations now attend Hope and can experience, as a family, God’s sovereign power and Christ’s love and forgiveness."
