  As life at House of Hope returns to a “new normal” I feel a renewed sense of hope for our church’s capacity to serve the Lord. The gifts I receive through participation in worship, experiencing sacred music, and sharing hospitality with others in our church community and in the larger community through our partnerships with organizations serving people in need, motivate me to share whatever gifts I have with the church.

  House of Hope is a strong community cornerstone, building hope and sharing hospitality. We are committed to faithfully serving our congregation and community. We serve our members experiencing difficult times with Stephen Ministry, offering 1:1 lay caring ministry. We support our children and youth on their faith journeys with programming that enriches their lives. We are committed to faithfully serving our neighbors by partnering with agencies addressing social justice issues including hunger and homelessness. Every time I walk through the doors of House of Hope I know I am home again.

  The Children and Family Ministry program at House of Hope is more than welcoming. The programs are creative and fun (glow stick art, LED mini golf, giant inflatable bowling, Advent crafts, and elaborate minute-to-win-it games!). And, they incorporate service (donating school supplies and winter coats, pulling plants at the end-of-season Community Garden or volunteering at Feed My Starving Children). In addition to these amazing offerings, the Director of the Children and Family Ministry has personally reached out to our family with emails, phone calls, and requests for input. She is open and accepting to all, regardless of how often we are able to participate. Her creativity and warmth shines through in all that she does to support the children in our church and beyond.

  Coming back to House of Hope this year has been like catching up with an old friend. While some things have changed so much is familiar. Best of all, the conversation picks up right where we left off. We are so grateful for the hospitality of this church and the way we’ve been welcomed back after the uncertainty of the last few years.

  As a gay man, I’ve been asked dozens of times, “You go to church? Why? You’re gay!” My response has always been, “I’m a Christian, and have gone to church all my life.” Jesus said, “Love your neighbor.” I’ve always felt acceptance, respect, and love at House of Hope!
Our church is known for its beautiful architecture, great preaching, and outstanding music! But it’s the people who make House of Hope the wonderful church that it is!
—Bruce Johnson
  When I enter the building its familiarity and grandness gives me a sense of closeness. The music at House of Hope is warm, uplifting and it’s comforting. The preaching is nourishment and encouragement. That’s why I am moved to give back, even though I didn’t grow up with any such church traditions. The progressive values reflected at House of Hope, protecting our earth, and kindness and caring for all are important to me as well.
—Mark Prpich
  We finally began to feel at home after joining the House of Hope some years ago even though it had been quite a little while since we relocated ourselves to Minnesota. Heekyung was born and raised in the Presbyterian Church tradition, and we both find the environment that the House of Hope provides so welcoming to build a sense of community for us. Moreover, it is our great pleasure to be able to contribute some to the church’s music ministry as members of The Bells of Hope Handbell Choir and The Motet Choir.

I like sitting with the kids and hearing Kiera tell us Bible stories.
