High Hopes

6:30 - 7:30pm Monday

May 20

~ for children & families ~

Our Worship Service will be online only until further notice.

Sunday schools, child care during the service, and fellowship times will resume when safe again.

To err on the side of caution and to protect the most vulnerable in our church and community,

our Sunday worship service will be online through the end of August.

We will reevaluate sometime later in August for the next 30 days.

Stay safe everyone!

Hope Lives!

Contemporary Praise Service

Join us at 11am Sunday as for our uplifting worship service and sing out your praise with joy-filled music.

5 Part Series: Life’s Ultimate Questions.


On April 28th, Pastor Richard began five messages on Life’s Ultimate Questions. Psychology Today asked readers to submit questions

and over 30,000 responded. These questions are newcomer friendly because whether one belongs to a church or not,

these are the top five ultimate questions. (In order of the requests of the readers)

Part 5 of 5: Healing the Past


John 8:1-12 Communion

I cannot poison my own soul by refusing to forgive. For the Christian forgiveness is an ongoing process for ourselves and for others. This will keep the future in perspective, "God have mercy on me, a sinner."

Healing Principle #5 "Choose to live into the future."

We celebrate birthdays and anniversaries on the first Sunday of every month.

Testimony of Edwin Ramos

February 9

We welcomed guest speaker Edwin Ramos from Allentown, PA. He is friend of Pastor Scott and is a life coach and one of the managers on staff at the Allentown Rescue Mission. Edwin shared his compelling testimony of how Jesus Christ raised him out of drug addiction and homelessness to a new life where he can help others who are at the end of their rope.

Question: #1  What is the Meaning of Life?

Matthew 4: 1-11

This is the question that had the most votes from the 30,000 folks who submitted questions.

What good is it if I live 80-90 years or so and have no idea “Why?”

Love God and love people is Jesus’ formula for the meaning of life.
