At Real Hope you'll find a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. We serve, sing songs to the Lord, explore the Scriptures, and encourage each other. Our Sunday gatherings last about an hour.
What about parking?
There is plenty of parking on the city streets near our campus, and we also have limited parking on our property. In order to make our parking process run as smoothly as possible, we ask that you:
Follow the guidance of our parking team.
Take as few cars as possible per family.
Please see the diagram below for additional parking info.
What will happen when I visit for the first time?
If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people just want to check out the church and that’s fine with us! You will have the chance to fill out a guest card, but no pressure. We welcome you as our guests, and we want you to feel free to explore whether Real Hope might be the church home for you. We hope it is!
What should I wear?
Wear whatever is comfortable for you. If you want to dress up for church – great! If you want to dress casually – also great!
What about my kids?
Your kids are a top priority. Our kids building (The Clubhouse) is clean, safe, and staffed with encouraging leaders who have been through extensive background checks and training. We offer programming for kids birth-5th grade on Sundays. For more info, check out our Real Hope Kids page.
For 6th-12th graders, we have a service just for them called The Crossing on Wednesday nights at 6:30p. On Sunday mornings, we encourage our students to attend the adult service and/or serve on a volunteer team. For more info about our student ministry, check out The Crossing page.
How do I meet people and get connected?
There are several ways to get involved at Real Hope. In addition to regularly attending our Sunday gatherings, the best place to start is Pie with the Pastors, which we have about once every 6 weeks. In that class, we share the story of how Real Hope got started, what we're about, and how you can play a meaningful part in the life of our church family.
How do I join Real Hope or become a member?
We don't use the terminology of membership at Real Hope. We prefer the biblical language of family, which implies both a sense of belonging as well as shared responsibility. If you are interested in becoming a part of our church family, the best first step is to attend our next Pie with the Pastors.
