A Little More About Us

Hope Chapel is at this point a small loving church family. While numerical growth will be important to us, the growth that we most desire is that those who enter our doors will develop an insatiable thirst for God and His son Jesus Christ. We don’t desire to remain small in number, and you can be a part of changing that! However, if you are looking for a mega church where you can sneak in and out without many people noticing, and if you are not comfortable being in an intimate environment, we might not be the place for you. But, if you are looking for a family of believers who are making active changes in their lives, to be more and more like Christ, then we just might be the place for you. We encourage anyone interested, to try us for three to six months. At that point we are pretty sure you will feel a great sense of being and belonging.

Casual Attire

Casual comfortable attire is how most people dress (including staff). We do not have a dress code. Men, you may come in a suit if you wish or even a tie. We promise no one will make fun of you. However, we ask you to refrain from coming in a wetsuit, it gets water all over the place.

When You Get Here

You will be greeted! Probably more than once. We will most likely ask you for an e-mail address. You need not provide any information you do not wish to impart. If we ask too many questions it’s not that we are nosy, we just want to get to know you. Just say, Pastor Ed Says “back off”.


We have open communion at every Sunday service. You, based on your personal relationship with Christ, will be the judge as to your participation. No one will be turned away or judged for their participation or lack of.

Important Stuff

We really want you to expect the presence of God through His Holy Spirit. It is our purpose to welcome the Holy Spirit in every service. We don’t leap over pews or swing from chandeliers. However, we expect God to speak to our hearts and give us direction through His Word, our singing, giving and everything we do during our celebration of His love for us. We are not morose. We like to pray, laugh, have fun and any other appropriate emotion for the time.
