Faced with rising interest rates, the worst inflation in 30 years, the threat of a climate crisis, and a war on our doorstep in Europe, it’s understandable that many people feel hopeless. Many of us are looking for reasons to be hopeful and optimistic.

In today’s culture, the word hope is often used to represent wishful thinking but hope with the right foundation is about trust and waiting expectantly. This hope transforms our entire approach toward life.

Join us in person or online from 13 to 27 May for a 9-part series, offering powerful life-changing messages of hope.

Got Questions?

Got questions about the Bible or something you’ve heard in our Reflecting Hope series? Simply fill out the form below, and we’ll do our best to answer your questions throughout the series.

How did our world get so messed up? Why is there suffering? Where did evil come from? Will it ever end? Questions like these trouble many thinking persons. Science has no answers to them and philosophy has many conflicting answers. Where can we find the truth?

Request Prayer

There are times when life is overwhelming, and all we have are questions. In those moments, hope can feel far away. The great thing about prayer is that it shifts our perspective toward Jesus who stands ready to listen. No matter what you’re facing, we’d love to pray with you!
