Progressive Christianity has been a defining aspect of our church culture. As such, the language in our services reflects our enduring commitment to where the teachings of Jesus are central, but other sources of wisdom and insight are examined; where freedom of thought and expression are encouraged; where the importance of social and environmental justice is made real and relevant.
Worship and faith formation at Hope celebrate the love and grace of an inclusive God. We gather on Sundays for one service in our sanctuary and via Facebook. During the summer, we add a second service in our outdoor worship center. The worship service is designed to create and support a caring and inclusive community. It includes several pieces from our music ministry, readings from the Bible and other sources of wisdom, a message and a prayer. The flow of the service is supported in the sanctuary with screen graphics. on the first Sunday of every month, we have a communion ritual, with emphasis on its symbolic role of creation unity in community. Baptism is conducted during worship and involves the participation of the entire congregation.
