Welcome to Hope Fellowship!  Our passion is to be a place that models what it looks like when God gets to have His way; an empowering culture that enables all believers to live out their God-given identity as revivalists and reformers.  We are a non-denominational church aligned with several apostolic ministries, including Dutch Sheets Ministry, Bethel Leaders Network, & Champions Network of Churches.

COVID-19 & On Campus Worship

We know that meeting together corporately will look differently than pre-covid-19, and the last thing we want to do is put anyone in a vulnerable situation. With that said, below are things for you to be aware of:

  • Aire-Master is weekly disinfecting (specifically for covid-19) the Sanctuary, Youth Room, Foyers (north & south buildings) and restrooms.  
  • At this point we are not opening the nursery.  If this is a hardship for you, please consider continuing to join us through live stream.
  • Those who are vulnerable (over 65, have disabilities, serious respiratory or cardiovascular conditions, are immunocompromised, etc.) please continue to join us through live stream.
  • If you have had fever within 48 hours, cough or shortness of breath, sore throat, loss of taste or smell or had vomiting/diarrhea within 24 hours, please continue to join us through live stream.
  • If you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive or have traveled internationally or to a domestic “hot spot” in the past 2 weeks, please continue to join us through live stream.
  • Hand sanitizer, gloves and masks are available in the foyer, if you would like to use them.  We also have “Distancing” badges for those who are abiding by the 6ft rule.
  • We moved the chairs into rows that are at least 6 ft apart in the Sanctuary, Balcony & Youth Room.  If the Sanctuary & Balcony fill up, the Youth Room will be used for overflow with the live stream showing on the screen.  This should easily keep us within the recommended 50% maximum capacity.
  • Families are encouraged to sit together 6 ft apart from other family groups.
  • Offering bags will not be passed.  Instead feel free to give online or drop your offering in The Box in the Foyer or in one of the baskets on the stage.
  • We will not be making coffee.  Feel free to bring your own, but please have a lid on it.
  • Children’s Church is on hold for now, but Trisha Blacksher (Children’s Director) will be giving a brief children’s message during the Worship Service. 

Note: Wednesday nights will continue to be live stream only until further notice.

 
Yes we are gathering for Sunday Worship Services, but everyone should be clear in understanding that COVID-19 is highly contagious and is known to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. By attending Hope Fellowship Church’s worship service, you agree to voluntarily assume the risk that you and/or your family may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 while at the church. You agree to assume all the risks of attendance and participation for you and your family, and you waive any liability against the church and any other parties.

Becoming a Gapstander

(Sharefaith App Image)
I received an e-mail several years ago that ended with this statement; “Life is not the way it’s supposed to be; it’s the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.” At the time I thought Jesus didn’t make the ultimate sacrifice to provide a way for us to just cope as life spirals out of God’s will. Israel often had seasons where life was not the way it was supposed to be either.

Ezekiel 22 tells us that the priests were profaning the law and the Lord, the princes were preying on the people, the prophets were prophesying false visions and lies and the people were oppressing the poor. All of society from the top to the bottom was ripe for judgment but God’s first response was to look for a “gapstander”. So I sought for a man 

The Lord desires to show mercy and He looks for us to stand in the gap between the way things are and the way things should be. Instead of agreeing with the naysayers and faithslayers let’s be gapstanders for America’s future, that it would yet fulfill the purpose in the earth that God intended.
