Why should I care about church?
It’s a question we’ve all wondered, even if we’ve never asked it out loud. And it’s a good question to ask, whether you’re a longtime churchgoer or a skeptic looking in from the outside. When we observe the modern church, we might ask ourselves things like: Isn’t the church unnecessary for faith? Isn’t it outdated? Isn’t it hopelessly politicized? Isn’t it watered down and showy? Isn’t it manipulative? Isn’t it anti-intellectual? Isn’t it greedy?
It’s not supposed to be.
Jesus intended his Church to be a place where God is glorified, where barriers between people break down, where we seek answers to life’s deepest questions, where we bear each other’s burdens and work together for the flourishing of our communities. At Real Hope, we prayerfully strive to align our actions and attitudes with what Jesus intended. We invite you to belong with us, wherever you are on your spiritual journey.
If you’re a new or seasoned Christian, we would love to meet you and consider how we can grow together.
If you’re not a Christian, we want you to know that we actively desire for you to be a part of what we’re doing. Whether you’re quietly curious or an outspoken skeptic, we genuinely believe that your presence will enrich our gatherings, enhance our efforts to serve our neighbors, and challenge us in healthy ways. You’re not just welcome; you are wanted.
