Our Unrehearsed Christmas Pageant at 5:30PM on Christmas Eve, is made of readings of the narratives of Jesus birth, with accompanying Christmas Carols, and we all are the characters in the pageant. You can come dressed as a character, or you can come get dressed as a character, for we have costumes! As far as we know today.

We hope to see you there!

October is Stewardship Season!


Now is the time when we reflect on how Hope Central Church provides us a place, a basecamp, for our spiritual journey of discovery and connection while bringing God’s Kingdom to Earth through justice and compassion. We make our financial covenant with the church to sustain and deepen its ministries. (link to Stewardship page.) On Sunday, October 25th we will join together in a Parade of Pledges when we bring our pledge cards up together. From there the finance team has the information to build the 2016 budget. We joyfully invite you to join us!

What We Are Reading

Hope Central Church is a learning congregation. We keep learning by being in worship together, doing the work of compassion and justice, by hearing each others’ stories. We wanted to share what we’re learning by reading. Here’s what we are reading.

Our makeGOOD Capital Campaign


Our makeGOOD campaign kicked off Sunday, September 13 after our morning church service. To learn more about our Furnace Project and the makeGOOD campaign, visit our makeGOOD campaign page.

NightChurch: an evening worship service under construction

A 5:30 p.m. lay-led weekly Sunday evening service is being built by a group of
church members to be a contemplative time of song, prayer, scripture and
communion. We welcome Hope Central Church members and friends to attend.

Parents’ Corner

Check out the Parents’ Corner on our Children’s page, for relevant resources from our Associate Pastor, Courtney. Need some prayer ideas for children? You’ll find them here.
