In the 1980′s, it became clear that the needs of the church and the needs of the community are inseparable. A new vision began to emerge, calling for a combination of meaningful worship and purposeful social outreach. The dream of Hope was to become a church which utilized expertise of social service agencies' to enhance the church's emphasis on providing sanctuary, peace and God's unconditional love.
Thanks to more than 3,500 hours of volunteer help, in 1990, this new vision took physical form when the new Community Ministry Center and sanctuary were dedicated. The Community Ministry Center has provided a home for not-for-profit social agencies at "less-than-market" rates and through the work of these agencies, many lives have been touched.
